Default 'new posts' link?

Either I'm being very dumb tonight, or this has gone AWOL from the quick links tab during the upgrade...

Ooh! I like the new tagging option though!

The New Posts and Member's List links are back in the Quick Links drop-down menu now.

When I click "quick links" and then, "new posts", I am told

"This forum requires that you wait 10 seconds between searches. Please try again in 10 seconds."

This is somewhat irritating

Uh yeah, that would be irritating. I will check into it.

Does it happen all the time to you, or just sometimes with "New Posts"?

For me the 'new posts' link doesn't work: the 'todays posts' one does.

This has happened to me, too, but only occasionally. Not all the time.

Happens to me all the time. When I logged in this session, I purposely waited 10 seconds before clicking the "New Posts" link. It still said I had to wait 10 seconds. Apparently it doesn't start the timer until the first click on the link.

I'm logged in all the time. I have to click "new posts" then wait 10 seconds before I can get "Today's posts"

Okay, I've found one thing I did different when I set up the New Posts link again, and changed it back to how it was done last time... I'm hoping it's the key to solving the problem!

Let me know if it works now or is still an issue.

I just got that same message. And that was the first search I did. Hm, could it be that someone else just did one at about the same time and that's what the waiting is for? :;shrug::

True. But I still have to wait 10 seconds after clicking Quick Links before I can get into them. And that still applies

I am still getting the "must wait 10 seconds" message, even when I am careful to wait 10 seconds. Did anyone ever come up with a solution to this?

I'm sorry, I completely forgot about having my husband help check into this, as it has me stumped. I'm close to leaving town for WorldCon, so it likely won't be looked at until after my trip, but I will try to remember to consult him once I'm back home. Feel free to bump the topic again if there's no message from me on it by Aug 15.

Question Re: 'new posts' link?

I jumped from my e-mail to the new messsage from MoM. Log in was taken to the post, had reponded and got the 10 second warning when I clicked onto the Todays Post.. too. "srug shoulders" By the way I don't know if it my server or not its been acting some what sticky. I am a user not a programer so I am telling it how it is.

Looking at the index page, I don't get any indication of new posts in any of the threads. I know that there used to be a pink book and now the book is plain. This has been going on for some time now. I did not know that there was an upgrade. Maybe it will work itself out soon. Hope so, because I am missing a lot of posts without it.

Look for an open book icon to find new threads, both by forum and in the separate forums.

Oh, that one! Sorry. Do you see anything at all by the subforums? They look more yellow with a little pink edging to me, but that could just be my vision.

I think that the New Posts link had still been broken for folks.

I've just done some updating of templates, and let that link revert back to it's former position on the main nav bar. Can someone please confirm whether it is working now or still giving the 10 sec warning message?
