My forum is at www.ddscart.org. I am running Yet Another Forum.net version 1.9.1.8. on Godaddy.

I seem to be having problems with the “New post/No New Post” flags. They don’t seem to always clear when you read a post. I’ve looked though the forum here and found nothing. Has anyone else had the problem?

Also has anyone found a way to put a counter at the bottom of the forum page? I guess most people don’t need and or want one, but to me it’s important to have an idea of how many hits I get.

I think this was fixed with 1.9.3 which is beta. Who knows if it will ever come out of beta status. If you click on the quick links above all the posts and instead of going back to the root of your forum, click backwards. For example your top forum is 1 and you have one subforum named 2 and one subforum under that named 3. When you read a post under 3, instead of clicking on 1 to go back to the main forum, click 3, 2, then 1 and it will mark it correctly.

No help on the counter here.

I've found that to be correct 99% of the time as well. I'm afraid to try 1.9.3 because of being a Godaddy site!!!

Now the counter, anyone?

Thanks for your reply “Hawk”. Maybe one day when I know enough I will update!

As the post might imply, I’m big on numbers. If you exclude the “Stickies”, out of seven pages of posts, it has astounded me that there were over 2700 views in 24 hours! That the third highest views overall. The other two are weeks old!

Being that the update corrected the flag problem, does that say there is a lot of interest in counters? By the number of replies (three, two of which are mine) I think it is safe to say nobody has spent any time on them. By the apprenant interest maybe we should. I wish I knew enough to be of help.

Anyway thanks for the help even if there is none!

1.9.3 is RC, which is slightly more then beta ;)

Anyway, to the counters. All you need to do is to put your counter code to the bottom of default.aspx page. Since all forum pages are served through default.aspx, every hit will get counted. Is it visual counter or just counter code without frontend on your page? Cause if it's visual and you want to have it on certain place, default.aspx might be little bit limiting. But don't worry and try it. All you need to care for is that you don't delete any tag and keep file XML valid.


When I post FP:Ederon in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting.

Sorry about the beta slip, but I’m still afraid to update on Godaddy.

I don’t have any code at this time and I don’t care if it’s visible or not. I would need to store the count somewhere wouldn’t I? And would vbscript for the code work? I could write that myself.

Would adding code to Login.aspx as well as default.aspx serve to count members vs guest?

Thanks, you got my wheels to spinning!!

Is there login.aspx? And yes, you can use vbscript. You just need to explicitly define you're using vbscript.

For those interested, Bravenet.com was the only place to get a counter code that I could find. They handle all the code and database workload. When you sign up for it (free or pay versions) they give you the code to put in your web page or forum.

Ederon was right to put the code in the bottom of the default.aspx page. It is visible and centered. It worked the first time with no problems. It is customizable to some degree and best of all it counts!

I still can't beleive the 4000+ views on this subject!

See it at www.ddscart.org at the bottom of the page.

This problem is still present in the latest version taken from the SVN.

Has anyone got a solution for this?

edit: running 1.9.3_BETA_0, so not trunk src

probably fixed in the trunk-version.

edit2: ok trunk => 1.9.3_BETA_0 ^^

so it's not fixed.
