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=' +

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
