  • Functions lacking in new vBulletin

    Three useful functions of the old vBulletin forum that appear to be missing in the new:
    1. Bookmarkable New Posts page (the Todays Posts URL is query-strung to the current date).
    2. Indication of posts in which the logged in user has participated (was green circle with tick).
    3. Direct link to last post in a thread (was blue >> next to last posters name).
    Strange that vBulletin should leave these out. Maybe there's a lever to pull in the back end.

    Also, is there an account setting somewhere for "automatically subscribe to every thread I answer or comment to"? I´m under the impression the email notifications from forum don´t work like they should - but could be me.

        Thanks, makes me feel better. I noticed I don´t even always get emails when I intentionally subscribed to a thread (which took me some time because I´m used to being subscribed as soon as I answer)

        Have you tried this?

        My Profile > Edit Settings > Notifications > Email Notifications

          Yes, Email Notifications are ON (and everything else on this page LOL). Repeated to go there and check this, anyway I hardly get any notifications.
          For example this thread - when I answer or comment here, should I get a notification when other comments are added, regarding my settings? I don´t. So if I forget to click this "Subscribe" button on top, it´s hard to find the threads I participated again. Wish that was a setting in my profile but seems it is not?

        When I click 'Latest Posts' the list is generally blank for me - so I end up using "Today's Posts"
        It would be nice if that "Today's Posts" link was always visible - to go back now is a two step process (I know using the browsers back button works, but that does not refresh the list to show you which ones you have visited !
        Cheers, Dave

          Totally aggree - the second-line menu from the forum frontpage should always be visible.

          Has anyone ever had any notifications ?
          I have mine configured correctly, but have never received one !

            No, I only get notifications for threads I have started myself, no others. Justme told me it´s a bug in vBulletin 5. Yes, it´s annoying not to get any notifications for threads I participated...

          I miss it where they actual category displayed differently when a new post was present within that category.
