"New posts" is working differently.........

......once I open a posting that is listed by the New Post facility, it disappears from the new post list after I have closed it, even though I refresh the new post listings.

Before the software changes of the last 24 hours this was not the case.

Also, once I make a post, I can see the result in the relevant thread, but not in the New Post listing.

Yep, just proven with the last posting!!


+, I have just noticed that the new post facility used to ask how many hours or days you wanted to display and that does not happen now.
(you can tell that I use the new post facility extensively!!).

Wink I hear you

No need to shout Martyn!

But, thanks for posting; once someone else posts, the thread reappears in the "new post" listing!! Weird, and certainly not as user friendly as it once was.

It is? Not for me - I worked on it for hours and gave up!

WHAT do you see / get when you click the "New Posts" link in the blue bar above?

You SHOULD get a drop down list with different times to choose for recent posts, e.g. last 4 hours, last 12 hours, last 2 days etc.

Currently all I get is a link, no drop down, and it gets me "new posts" and that's it. VERY odd, driving me nuts.

we SHOULD get a drop down menu.......... but sorry mate, were not.....not all change is for the best i fear. Apart from that, its a fantastic site, and a site that accounts for far too much of my time..........( actually not really, the bike is off the road mostly at the moment so I have to get a fix somehow) as for the HUBB, top marks for a great site.... but PLEASE put it back the way it was!

Well this bit is working OK now and it is the function that I found most useful!

Correct, this bit seems to show every post since year dot; 84 pages showing at present.

Personally, I can live with that! 90% is not bad.

ALL fixed now - new posts is working correctly, finally. It's now a drop down list as it should be. (not default vb, it's a hack I added in to get the much improved functionality - but every time there is a big vb upgrade, we have to add it back in - and it seems this time I stuffed it up.)

) (right bracket) incorrect in the code. Jeff spotted it not me!
