URL to show new forum posts

Post by NisusUser » 2019-06-19 22:28:58

Hi, all,

I have had this bookmark in Firefox to take me to new posts on the forums:

Code: Select all

http://www.nisus.com/forum/search.php?search_id=newposts&sid=10c313ff353ee78d99f9a34f216b670f
Now it doesn't work. When I use it, it takes me here:

Code: Select all

https://www.nisus.com/internal_error.html
That "internal error" page shows a nice little picture of bugs getting away with mischief, but it doesn't help me get to the new posts. Did something change? What URL do I need to use?

Maybe "sid" means "session ID", and it should be eliminated and be like this:

Code: Select all

http://www.nisus.com/forum/search.php?search_id=newposts
That works, I guess, but I can't tell since I guess there are no new posts right now. :)

Thanks!

Thanks for posting this. I actually didn't know there was a "new posts" search criteria or bookmarkable URL, but that's quite handy. I'm glad you got it working despite your encounter with those mischievous bugs haha!

One potential enhancement is to bookmark the secure "https" URL:

Code: Select all

https://www.nisus.com/forum/search.php?search_id=newposts
Generally nisus.com will automatically redirect any http requests to https, but that doesn't seem to occur on the forum. I'm not sure why.
