I can't work out the deals forum bit where you just get the ones with new posts that bump it up to the top etc. Everytime i search its scattered between either hottest or newest and the times are anything between 30 secs ago to some hours/days/months ago. Tried everything in the customise bit but don't like this at all. Can't get it how i used to have it. Don't come on here much now. May look for another site.:x
I guess admin must know about this as reported a lot. Top priority bug if you ask me as search is now useless.
Yeah we're going to change that! Its sorting by relevance now which isn't relevant if it's not showing what you need :)

marshallka, if you click the New tab you will get the newest threads posted in order - look at their submission time. If you click discussed you will get the newest threads with comments (which is how the old forum ordered posts). If you're looking for the old forum view then discussed is the tab you want to keep under.
Thanks Admin for the quick response. Must say I hated the changes at first but slowly getting used to it. Timing of change and beta testing was very poor mind.
I think we've learned a lot csiman and yes we messed some things up big time... Kind of bad that we won't have an opportunity to use the knowledge gained as another big update isn't on the cards hehe
I think it's a problem with multiple keywords, I mentioned this to the programmer yesterday.
Many thanks for the reply, but yeah, it'll stop me moaning about emma's 1 year old posts :D
Yeh its bugging me too, i just want them listed by date
Will have this changed to date submitted tonight... it's currently sorting by relevance
Ah nice one, thanks Admin :)
Not sorted yet though is it.?
Loadsa stuff still not sorted in any human logical way............
The search should be sorting in a different way now, have you tried to search for something today? What did you search for and were the results useful?

Still not fixed. tried a few searches and still in random date order so effectively I dont use search at the moment.
Oh and it was much better before when it said the time of day rather than how long ago each thread was last commented on, especially when looking on the discussed forums as I look every few hours and its easier to see what new posts there are as i can remember what time I last looked. Having to work out how long ago it was in hours & minutes is a pain, especially as new posts since last visit are no longer in bold like they used to be.

The bold highlights on threads now seem completely random or is there some logic behind it?
The text bold/unbold should be working - but to be sure look at the icons. They are dark red if there is a new reply or unread, they are faded if nothing new since you last read it. They have an arrow in them if you've left a comment.
WOW! that was quick. Thanks for the tip.
No - Just refreshed my discussed page 1 and bold text is random on each thread.
I meant the icons csiman :) I'll have the text bold/unbold checked out.
