1. click search then go to advanced search

2. where it says search for keywords leave this blank

3. check..... Search for all items

4. Where it says search by author put a * (asterix)

5. under search options leave search in as it is

6. under search previous check 1 day

7. under display select topics or posts (topics works best)

8. sort by select post time

9. click search

10. copy the url then go to www.tinyurl.com

copy the code tiny url gives. add a link in your nav bar then link it to that url

hope this makes sense

Hi,

Are you using the method with the asterisk? (*)

If so, that method will NEVER work again, this method causes too many server errors.

Please be patient as well, although ForuMotion's office is in France, the majority of people here are volunteers (Like myself) and we have our own lived that we have to live before we come online.

It still works. You just need to put more asterisks. Razz
OR '%*', percentage symbol being the SQL wildcard symbol.

Here's your simple PHP solution Razz:
Code:

$search = array($_GET['search_author'], $_GET['search_keywords']);
foreach($search as $field) if(preg_match('#^\s*[\*%]+\s*$#', $field) header('Location: /search');
Even easier in phpbb3 core.
