    Aaron,

    The way the New Posts feature seems to work, in my view at least, is not ideal. In a nutshell, it seems to query all the posts since the user's last post. So the minute I post something new, I only see newer posts. Maybe that's not quite how it works, but it is a little strange. My suggestion would be for a New Posts in the last 24-hours, if that is possible. I think many of us would find that much more useful than the current method.

    What do you think?

    New Posts has always been a bit quirky in vBulletin. It queries the posts since the newest post you've read. So, sometimes, if you get an email indicating there is a new response to a message, and click the link, it can clear out your cache, and it looks like there are no longer any new posts.

    I will add it to quick links when I get a chance, but you can query new posts in the last day with the following url:

    http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...hp?do=getdaily

    or the last x days with:
    http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...etdaily&days=x
