Warren has solved the problem now, thank goodness.
Where is Recent Posts ? Can't seem to see it on my page.
Hi Old Boy ... I find the search on Xenforo is much better than it was on the old forum. You can search for words in titles only. If you put only your username in the search with nothing ticked, it will find every post you ever made. If you put someone else's user name it will find every post they made. When you find a thread, you can find every post you or another user has made only in that thread ... it's brilliant.Mike,
When you click on New Posts, Recent Posts comes up on the top line. If you click on that you get the recent posts.
Am I correct in thinking that the search facility has disappeared? On the old site we could check whether or not a subject we wished to bring up had previously been discussed. All in all I think this new site is much better and thank you Warren for all the hard work you have put in.
Hi Viv .. it is not the same ... in fact if I look at it I can see no recent activity by you or Lyn. I assume this is because you are both staff members. I can however see activity by one staff member.Mike, if you press on the blue bar 'Forums' just below the advertising at the top of the page it comes up with options, one being 'Recent Activity' Is this the same as 'Recent Posts'? iv.
So maybe it could be a way of getting email alerts for old watched threads you once posted in. The 'on-screen' alerts are good but sometimes I miss one in the list.By default, XenForo will only email notify you on the first new post/reply after the last one you read. Any additional ones will not show up with new email notifications until you visit the thread and read the latest post which appears to reset the email setting, so you will get an email with the next response.
