last N days

Postby flergalwit » Sat Jul 02, 2016 7:52 am

One thing that's either missing from the new software or I can't for the life of me find it for whatever reason is a page that will give the posts of the last day or week (or whatever). It was pretty useful to be able to see new activity without looking through the entire board for something new. Did I just miss it or has it gone? If the latter can it be activated somehow? Thanks!

If you click on the "Quick Links" symbol on the upper right hand corner of the page, right under the main header, it will give you a drop-down menu that has several options, including new posts, unanswered posts, active topics, members, and etc.

Is this what you need?

Ah I got to the one saying "Active Topics" by a different route.
search.php?search_id=active_topics
But either way it seems to be saying there are no active topics within the last 7 days, which I'm reasonably sure isn't true...

The new posts one might be useful though - thanks. It's not exactly the same as last 7 days but hopefully it should be a quick way of checking what's going on.

Haha unanswered topics - search.php?search_id=unanswered - I think I see a pattern here...

It has been excruciatingly dull around here lately . . . *sigh*

It might be dull but there has definitely been activity in the last 7 days. For example here! And several other threads. So I think this page
apositive.org/search.php?search_id=active_topics
simply isn't working properly at the moment?

Hmmm. You're right. I will ask Karl about it.
(Although I will investigate it first by myself, just because I feel like I should try. Maybe something isn't activated?)

Okay, I enabled something in the "feeds" category that was disabled.
I'm still not getting any response from active topics, which is weird because that's what it said that it was for, but new posts is working for me now. :eh:

I found it! It had to be activated separately for each forum.
It appears to be working now. Check it out. :)
