...I am occasionally sneeking in and want to check what was up since my last logon. This has always worked when selecting a forum group (like Smartphone, which is my interest). Since a few weeks this does no more work for me. I had to select the overall group, but also this is no more working now. Is this done on purpose or is something gone weird with my account?
The error returned was:
You did not choose any forums to search in, or the forums you chose to search in are password protected. If this is the case, please make sure you are logged into the password protected forums before searching.
I just checked again and it worked for "all Forums" but obviously delivered a result from a timestamp just an hour ago.
Do you have a limit of how many days back the "View new Posts" will actually work?
