Hello everyone,

In this release, we have solved a compatibility issue with PixelExit styles (and possibly other custom themes that put the link to unread messages in mobile view in a separate macro).

Thank you!

Hello everyone,

in this release we have added an option in the product to show the number of unread posts in mobile view. The option is enabled by default. Here are screenshots showing the options of the product and the counter in mobile view:

Thank you!
In this version, we have implemented a new phrase that controls the badge added. Phrase ID is "unread_post_counter" and by default, it only contains the counter variable, so after installation, the default behavior of the product does not change. However, the phrase can be edited to include any custom text or to remove the counter and replace with a phrase, like "New!".

Feel free to suggest further enhancements for the add-on or report any issues you have and they will be addressed asap.

Please consider rating the add-on if you are using it and let us know how it works for you.

Thank you!
This is a bug-fix version, that prevents a PHP error when uninstalling if the product "[AddonsLab] Navigation Badge" is not available (e.g. it was uninstalled first).
This version fixes the bug with counting private forums in the number of unread posts.

The count will be fixed for each user after the cache timeout.

Feel free to suggest further enhancements for the add-on or report any issues you have and they will be addressed asap.

Thank you!

This is a bug-fix version solving the issue with cache timeout not working properly (in the description it said the units to be minutes, but the code was actually considering hours as option's unit).

Hello everyone,

In this version we have implemented several stability fixes, that prevent a PHP error in case the Navigation Badge add-on is configured to show the number of unread posts, but this add-on is de-activated. Now the number of unread posts will continue being shown without any issues unless you disable the badge from Navigation Badge addon.

The bug of not updating unread post count when forums are marked as read is now fixed.

We have also implemented a new option right under "Unread Post Count Cache" option, that allows to hide the badge in What's New tab if the number of posts is 0. This option is selected by default.

Feel free to suggest further enhancements for the add-on or report any issues you have and they will be addressed asap.

Please consider posting a review if you are using the add-on and let us and other users know how it works for you.

Thank you!
