Mark everything read?

Recommended Posts

Looked around a bit and I couldn't find anything about it more than other people asking for the functionality... I think I could probably make a greasemonkey script for it, but not tonight, I'm freaking exhausted (going on just barely 5 hours of sleep which is way too little for me).

Actually for whatever reason, the 'Mark all as read' action is in the page footer, but it is commented out together with a whole bunch of links


http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?app=forums&module=forums&section=markasread&marktype=all&k=<your session key>

Going to this URL will indeed do what it says (and what we would like to have), but we can't bookmark this as the key part is obviously changing ;)

So we have basically 2 options here:


  • Have a nice webmaster to uncomment the link in the template
  • Write some greasmonkey script -- session key is in ipb.vars['secure_hash'], so it is just the matter of building the mark url...

Here is a quick and dirty GM script which does the job...


// ==UserScript==
// @name UMMarkAllRead
// @namespace http://e-bulles.net
// @description Add a 'Mark All Read' link in UM Forum
// @include http://umforum.ultimaker.com/*do=viewNewContent*
// @version 1
// @grant none
// ==/UserScript==
// We add an <li> line right under the 'View new content' link
var markAllReadLi = document.createElement('li');
markAllReadLi.setAttribute('class', 'right');
// The Link element
var markAllReadLink=document.createElement('a');
markAllReadLink.appendChild(document.createTextNode('Mark All Read'));
markAllReadLink.href = 'javascript:void(0);';
markAllReadLink.onclick = markAllRead;
// Add the Link in tke <li>
// Add the <li> just before 'Home'
var menu = document.getElementById('community_app_menu2');
var menuHome = document.getElementById('nav_app_ccs');
if (menu && menuHome) {
menu.insertBefore(markAllReadLi, menuHome);
// Ask confirmation when link is clicked...
function markAllRead()
var ret = confirm("Do you really want to mark all forums as read?");
if (ret == true) {
window.location.href = 'http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?app=forums&module=forums&section=markasread&marktype=all&k=' +

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
