    Since there's no "past 24 hours" option in the New Posts (i.e. "Since last log-in") anymore, how can I get this feature (search ALL forums) without a (limited) search word.

    This is a bummer as I used the "past 24 hours" search all the time since I usually came to the site (to page through the new posts) AFTER I checked the emails of my subscribed thread, which would re-set the "since last log-in" feature, thus limiting the posts I would see.

    NOW if I check my TalkBass emails first, later I'm stuck to a search of new posts by a (very limited) search word.

    Paul, you had said awhile ago you would reinstate this feature.

    Please Paul, reinstate this feature. :( :( :(

    PS> Or.....make it so we can put in a word or code in the search box that will search ALL the forums for posts (of any kind) for the time specified. :hyper:

    "New in the last 24 hours" was pretty much the only search feature on here I used. Now it's gone. :bawl: Pleeease bring it back.

    It's particularly useful for when I get called away from the computer - sometimes the board will time out, which resets all my unread posts!
     
  4. Yes, was a very useful feature for the reasons already listed. I usually use the "new posts" feature, but, for those times that I'm called away before scanning all the new posts, it's nice to have a way to come back to them later.

    Someone gave me this link once before. It worked for about a week then I started getting an "invalid thread" or "link" message. Seems to work now though.
