Latest post button no longer working on the forum. This is the message we get

"No topics or posts met your search criteria"

Did forumotion get rid of this again? Any fixes yet?

Here's the redirection i've been using for months

<a href="/search?search_keywords=&search_terms=any&search_author=*_%&search_time=7&search_where=-1&show_results=topics&sort_by=0&sort_dir=DESC">Show Latest Posts</a>

Here is where i got it from and its been working great since June!

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead!

Where did you get such a link in the first place? I cannot confirm whether its a right or wrong link.

For posts since your last visit, we can use such a link.

I got it from a member here. Would show the latest posts from the last couple of days using a wildcard. Now the only way to view posts is "view posts since last visit" which is useless really.

The reason stands as it was before; It puts too much strain on the server, along with causing miscellaneous errors, which are ofcause to be avoided for the optimal running of our forums Smile

Well other forums have the feature- sounds like servers need updating to me - having out dated servers is probably the real root cause. If not corrected am afraid that forums will be closing their doors and going to hosts that can handle the traffic. Not trying to wind anyone up but thats what I see. Members are complaining like crazy because they having to sift through lots of stuff to comment on threads that was or is only a couple days old. Shame really.

This is ridiculous. My forum is finished unless this is sorted. Pity. It's only been going about 5 years. Always had the Wildcard feature in use without a problem too

I do not understand why you would loose members over a search feature.

Because searching the forum is useless without the feature. I won't even use it myself without it. Ill give it a week then search for an alternative host if its not sorted

No they used to use the new posts button which had the wildcard search. Everyone is complaining and there's we're only 5 other posts in 2 days. This happens every time they stop the feature from working

Please and thank you as our forum has gone stone old without it. I mean even one that just shows the past 24-48 hrs would be a great help and that should help with the servers problem too.
