Functionality

Basically, this adds two tabs to the main menu: "Unread" and "replies".

The tabs are meant to replace the ugly text of "Show unread posts since last visit" and "Show new replies to your posts", which I remove from my themes. It also shows ALL unread messages, regardless of last visit time, unlike the default "unread" action which you get through that text :).

Version 2.0: Adds the buttons only
Version 3.0: Adds the buttons and removes the text (this will make the area to the right of the avatars bare, for an alternate version which leaves the time online see here)


History

Version 1.4 > 2.0:
Added SMF 1.1.6 compatibility, no need to "upgrade" if you installed 1.4.

Lol har har, my theme removes that text, so it will need the buttons to be functional ;).

Great job, Jade.

I was planning to install it on my SMF 1.1.6, but looks like there's no way to show ALL unread messages, regardless of last visit time. Or there is?

This would be a good mod !... only thing is I`ve run outta space on my menubar..... now if someone could write a mod for user defined  dropdown menus then that`d be cool!!!

I'm using silentWave theme and it's not showing even though instalklation went smooth.

Do I have to manually do this? or is it a tab under Admin that I'm not seeing?

Jade Elizabeth

If using 1.1.x then yes, you WILL need to manually install it on your theme, however 2.0 should not need any manual installation :).

Awesome mod! Thank you. My members have begged for a mod like this.
I need to know how to modify a custom theme now..

Jade Elizabeth

Lol, easy peasy!

Go install a copy of the default from the admin center, then edit the style.css and images :D.

Jade, I think Kat-2 may be meaning, how to customize a current custom theme. Must need buttons for the unread and replies feature.
