This hook will show in board index, besides number of replies, the number of unread posts each forum has. The counter includes subforums.


  • It only shows # unread posts in Board Index. Can't show in forum view 'cause it would add one query per topic.
  • It's added only ONE query for all forums you have (not one query per forum).

  • IP.Board 3.4.X
  • IP.Board 3.3.X
  • IP.Board 3.2.X

There is some sort of strange bug, which is most likely associated with cache/update process.
The problem is that unread count doesn't drop on index page, until all post in given board have been read.

For example, if I have 3 unread posts in 3 topics in 1 board, and read only 1 post, counter will still display 3 unread messages on index page.

I don't know if this is how it is supposed to be, and that's why I am calling it bug.
But I must say that if that's how it is supposed to be, then that modification is quite useless, because knowing wrong number is worse than not knowing at all.
