Lightbulb In addition to "view new posts" about "View last 24 hours"

Hi Jeremy,

I read LinuxQuestions on and off during the day at the office - often I get interrupted and sometimes need to divert my brower to other things during meetings with clients and whatnot. When I come back obviously the "View new posts" link will display threads with posts entered since the last session (or 0-reply threads which reach 24 hours' age since the last session)

One thing I'd love to see is in addition to the "View new posts" link is one which will display "last 24 hours" - this would run a query which would display all of the threads containing posts made within the last 24 hours - or even another one which would display the last 48 hours.

I've tried running queries for common words made in the last day in the search form, however that will obviously only turn up a subset of the results I am looking for, and also, it creates a far heavier load (full text search) than simply querying on an indexed database column (dtmodified or whatever it happens to be called in your dbms) would take.

I like that idea. Yeah- I'm often on LQ and forced to leave... "posts since last visit" assumes that you looked at all the ones you wanted to.

Can't wait for the upgrade btw jeremy.

Here's a little workaround I use to use.. click the Members Online link from the main forum page and it auto refreshes every 1 - 2 minutes, keeping your timeout session with your cookies from expiring thus keeping the "New Posts" alive..
