    Another bid for direct links!

    I was going to take the opportunity to speak to ZH directly at the conf but obviously that didn't happen.

    I know things are going to be better in future BUT I WANT SOMETHING NOW!!!!

    (Will someone please pick up my rattle )

    How about putting something on the front page that directly links to at least Today's Posts.

    I'd suggest it should go above the recent forum posts or about sections (or instead of) on the top left.

    Please please please do it before I turn 60

    regards

    Simon

    Add a Button to your favorites bar which is the link to "Todays Posts" and then just click on that everytime you want to go to edugeek

    Or just use the tab "Whats New" which does the same job

    Are you sure? That link appears to show 'new posts' as opposed to Today's Posts which is what Si was after.

    Ah true, but if he's a good geek he will read it daily anyway thus it will be todays posts


    Si just bookmark this link - Search Results - EduGeek.net

    Thats the link for Todays Posts

    In vBulletin v3 I'm pretty sure "Quick Links" used to have "Todays Posts".

    This is one of those things that can't be communicated via typed text

    There are many workarounds to the problem (my wiki mod for instance) but I can't get across that the problem needs fixing and not in 6 months time!

    Top of the forum, "Whats New" and "iSpy" (logged out from memory shows something similar called "Today's Posts")

    Yeah that was the URL, although it does work to be honest because it uses a SearchID rather than an actual URL not sure how "brilliant" that would work.

    Understand there are many work arounds Si, and i am sure ZH will make some form of change to look after your age group (joke)

    Search Results - EduGeek.net

    Sorted - all I need to do is write a prog to keep posting the above in a post every 2 mins and then I'll get my links on the front page
