    I'm on my phone and on vacation at the moment but the site seems to be doing it again where after I post the thread dissapears and does not come up for me after clicking on new posts.

    -- I know it's painful. The tech guy updated security and other features but it seems to have affected other functions. Any post you make is there but when you click on 'New Posts' it disappears because you've read or viewed it already. I prefer how it was previously . . . It kept all new posts visible until a certain time had lapsed. I think it was an hour or 90mins. I'll try and get the issue resolved shortly.

    -- What's happened is we've upgraded to the latest version of vBulletin called 4.2.5. Before this we were running version 4.2.3. With the upgrade the vBulletin team appears to have removed certain dated functions. One of these being the "New Posts'" function. It's extremely frustrating because this was the sole function I used to keep updated on new threads and posts!

    However, all is not lost. It seems the vBulletin team has installed a new button called "Today's Posts" which functions much the same way as the old New Posts did. Apparently the Today's Posts function displays all new threads and posts posted within the last 24 hours. They display in bold font and once viewed (read) will show in non-bold font thereafter on subsequent Today's Posts clicks.

    You can read about these changes in the following discussion between vBulletin forum administrators and the vBulleting tech team below. It explains the change I'm talking about above:


    ====================

    4.2.5 How can I go back to thread marking by cookies?
    Yesterday, 8:42pm

    For some reason thread marking has been moved to the database exclusively, removing the admin option of using database or cookies. I'm not sure why an option was removed but it's messed up my forum. I've used a product from vbAdvanced for nearly a decade to show a list of recent posts along with a link to view "first new post" for each member. This particular product is much nicer than the recent posts options provided by the vBulletin script. I assume the vbAdvanced product read the member's cookie for thread marking. Now, with that option taken away and my forum forced to use thread marking with the database, my recent posts list no longer works.

    In a different thread a different vBulletin owner was told that using the cookie method was "obsolete." Well, it wasn't obsolete for all of us and it would have been nice if the option to go to database was left up to the administrator, as it's been for many years.

    My large membership depends on this recent posts list to follow discussions in a more convenient way than anything else available. I'm pretty sure I stand to loose members because of this change as the subject of my vBulletin forum is very competitive.

    Is there any way to restore the thread marking by cookie in version 4.2.5?

    New Posts is only supposed to show new posts. If you've read the thread, it's not new any more.

    What you need to use for that is Today's Posts.

    Is there any way to restore the thread marking by cookie in version 4.2.5?
    There is not, the code has been removed.

    ====================



    . . . . and in a previous thread basically asking the same thing:



    ====================

    Upgraded to 4.2.5 and now have search issues
    Tue 16th May '17, 1:24pm

    Hi
    I upgraded a few days ago to 4.2.5 and all seemed fine.
    I also rebuilt the search index as instructed.

    Clicking on New Posts no longer returns the results that the old forum did.

    Simply put, some posts are missing from the results.

    The correct search results can now only be achieved by Marking the forums Read.
    Then clicking on New Posts, when it says there are no posts to view, clicking on Here for a search of posts during the last 24 hours, this produces the search results as expected.

    Any idea what the problem is please?

    4.2.5 has removed the obsolete thread marking option to mark read by cookies.
    It now marks threads read the correct way, which is database marking.

    "New Posts" is ONLY supposed to show you threads with unread posts - otherwise they are not "New". Once read, they disappear from the list.

    If you want to see all updated threads from the past 24 hours, use Today's Posts, which lists unread in bold and read in normal text.

    -- I believe we'll be removing the "New Posts" button shortly and the "Today's Posts" button will remain to make things less confusing for users. It's actually better function-wise because threads and posts that were posted within the past 24 hours will now be displayed. Previously, the New Posts function would "time out" after a set period of time had elapsed (I think every 90 mins) and then begin anew.

    We'll see how it goes . . .
