I'm not getting any results for active topics. Are there really suddenly no topics that qualify as active? Usually there are lots of results. Or do I usually click on something else? I'm sure it's "View active topics" that I use. :?

I guess it depends on what is classed as an active topic, Mac. If, to be classed as an active topic, a thread must have say, five follow ups, most don't.

I was just about to ask the same thing...it's not working. This is usually how I navigate around here.

One thing thats changed... well reverted back to how it was a long time ago, was the removal of View New Posts at the top of each page. I have mentioned it in the Moderator section. Just have to wait and see. ;)

Perhaps messaging Ian directly might be quicker, Damien.

I too navigated by active topics, which I think included recently started new threads regardless of how many replies?

Yes, i'm defintely missing the View New Posts link at the top of the page, and i made a post about it in the Feedback forum as well. Ironically, this topic must surely qualify as "Active" now, given how many replies there has been in such a short period!! :D

Which "View new posts"? There's one on the "Board index" which is still there and works ok, but there used to be one at the top no matter what page you were on, next to "View your posts"

The "New posts" link on the other pages should be back shortly, it isn't standard for some reason so has to be re-applied after the recent upgrade.

How confusing. I'm using "view new posts" now so when I saw the other thread about it I had nothing to add as I thought it was working fine for me. :?

To clarify. View New Posts works and has always worked. What we requested a while ago (so much so, we are just to it) is that Ian add the View New Posts link to every page in the blue section up the top. This meant we didnt have to keep clicking "Board Index" to access the "View New Posts" link.

Due to a forum upgrade, the View New Posts link has reverted back to only being on the Board Index section. Ian is fixing it. ;)

When we first got a computer, Hubby used to deliberately crash it, just to see if he could fix it. I'm wondering if that's what happened here? :lol:

Not sure what you're referring to, Ian, but the View Active Topics still doesn't work. :?
