On the *classic* view, there is a link for Unanswered Posts. I believe in the new full version, this link was lost.

Can it be added back? It was helpful for individuals to check and see who's posts haven't been answered.

Re: Unanswered Threads

This site recently changed how it looks. It appears they kept the old *look* calling it "Classic".. ON the very bottom of any screen, there is a drop down box with the selection. I suspect at some point that'll go away.

Anywho, before the change, there was a quick link at the top, specifically for unanswered posts.

Re: Unanswered Threads

I'm using the classic format and the "unanswered posts" link is still there.

Classic View:
#1-Got to User CP
#2- Find Settings and Options, down left side
#3- Click on EDIT OPTIONS under Settings and Options
#4- Go all the way to the bottom of that page, you will see FORUM SKIN, with a drop down menu. Click on drop down menu. Click on AQUARIUMFORUM.COM (Classic)


Or go to the bottom of any page, bottom left, drop down menu, and click the look you want.

Re: Unanswered Threads

Re: Unanswered Threads

It could be expressed as a quick link to a search for posts(threads) that do not have any replies yet. (unanswered).

While they do show up in *new posts*, they can and do quickly fall off if no one replies.

Purpose: I believe it is beneficial to have a quick link to unanswered questions, it is a tool for members to answer unanswered questions, helps provide a helpful community.

Just a suggestion. I used to use that quick link all the time, even though, I didn't have an answer most of the time. I'm sure others used it alot as well.

Re: Unanswered Threads

Classic view still contains the Unanswered Post link. And it still works.

True, but the point of the new layout was to eventually move away from the classic view... I expect the classic view to disappear in a few weeks/months :(

Can't. They haven't even gotten close to it in the new set up.

Re: Unanswered Threads

We won't get rid of classic, as a rule. And I've added the unanswered posts like.
