Link to Unanswered posts?

I've seen featured on other forums a link to recent posts which have had zero responses. And I found this to be useful.

In days past, I usually had this forum on a browser tab and checked it frequently ... as in multiple times per day. Life moves along, things change, and now I find that I often go entire days without checking in.

During that time, many posts slip out of range of the "Today's Posts" range. In fact, they can easily slip off the first page results of that link. This could result in posts sinking out of view and NEVER getting a reply. Not a very welcome response, especially to newbies to the forum.

Just a suggestion, FWIW.

I log in, then I click on a bookmark of this in my browser:

smartcarofamerica.com/forums/search.php?do=getnew

(add the "http://www." prefix)

It displays all new posts since my last log in.

Thanks for the information, it is helpful.

But, it doesn't address the scenario I described, and there already exists a link for "new posts".

What I've seen elsewhere is a link specifically to posts with zero replies.

you can always click on active topics, todays posts, subscribe to threads, and new posts. you can also organize posts, and even set your profile to email alerts. ManchVegas i believe did answer your suggestion, there is many ways to get to new posts and set notifications to areas you are interested in by subscribing to threads.

I'm surprised that the "New Posts" isn't presented as a link on the site toolbar (was it, once?)

Hey,

You mentioned that you saw this feature somewhere, do you happen to recall where so that we can take a look at the function and see if that is something we can add here?
