Not sure what you are after then.

If you scroll to the bottom of the current home page, it says who is on line etc.

Sorry, I obviously never used it, so don't think I saw it. I always go to the "Quick Links" and "Todays Posts". In the old days my bookmarked link took me straight there, but now you can't do that, because of the way they index the posts. I had the same problem on two other Vbulletin engine driven forums as they got updated, but they did their updates a long time ago, so I have been in this habit for a long time.

It's nothing to do with the way the posts are indexed..... your bookmark simply needs to be changed

But you can't book mark it now.

On the old software, when you bookmarked the "New Post" link, it was dynamic, and used a URL that always showed just the unread posts, http://www.nissan4x4ownersclub.com/indexvbp.php That now no longer works, and returns an error

If you try to book mark it now, it puts a specific search ID number in the URL.
E.g, at 21:05 today the URL is http://www.nissan4x4ownersclub.com/f...earchid=547261

but at 21:26 after a post has been updated, it is http://www.nissan4x4ownersclub.com/f...earchid=547266

and the URL ending in 547261 no longer works.

Thats alright Rick, I was just trying to explain to BAT that I was not being stupid as his post implied, and what he is suggesting will no longer work on this updated forum.

I am intelligent enough to run my own forum, and several web sites, so know how to make a simple shortcut when I need to.

Sorry Clive, I wasn't implying you were stupid. I really don't know why you are struggling with this one though

Maybe I am getting confused here, I was under the impression that you were saying you can not create a bookmark that you can click to get the latest posts each time you visit.

Please let me know exactly what it is you are trying to do, hopefully I can then offer some help.

Ok for those of you who are having trouble here's a quick fix! ;simpley explained

1: go to the forums list which for some reason is now home page

2: favorite this page by licking the star button top right of browser address bar then open a new window in you browser.

3:Go in to favorites (two small chevrons top right of browser )and drag and drop this link on to your desk top.

You can then use this link to enter the site and navigate the site from the quick links box.

This doesn't mean we don't want the home page back though!

Listen up, when people put on pictures of ice cream or wots herface cookylady......I may be tempted to lick my screen........


http://www.nissan4x4ownersclub.com/forum/index.php

This is the link/bookmark I have in my 'bookmarks' that allows me to get on site, it sadly is not the nice easy accessible front page I/we had before, but if Bat 21 is telling us that things had to change because of technological hiccups or necessary moves for site safety or longevity, then I think we just have to get on with it, and learn new tricks, as sometimes, old dogs (no offence intended) must do......adapt and survive has always been a good ethos I think.......
