    It does... The New Posts search isn't set up that way currently though. Work needs to be done there still.

    Today's Posts is only meaningful for Guests. Registered Users use "New Posts" or whatever it's called now and would never need to use Today's Posts.

    Wayne,

    Thanks for turning it back on.

    Cool, the functionality exists and it is admin/mod choice. I will want to try this on my site as soon as it is ready. I like the idea having guest posts but agreed, if it proves a problem.

    I've enabled this functionality for guest visitors. However if it proves to be a problem, I may have to disable it again.

    vBulletin 1.0-4.2.1 "Today's Posts" link:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/search.php?do=getdaily

    vBulletin 5 "Today's Posts" link:
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/searc...ssage%22%5D%7D

    A JSONblob just to get a list of posts? Seriously? Ever heard of $_GET?

    Again this just points to some project manager who thought that vBulletin should be a Javascript/AJAX app through-and-through and use the absolute minimum amount of PHP to make it work. At this point, PHP is just being used as a dumb delivery system for megabytes of Javascript. Never mind the fact that Javascript will NEVER execute anywhere near as fast as PHP does. The amount of reinventing of the wheel going on here is unbelievable.

    Today's Posts as a guest

    I clicked on the Today's Posts as a guest, not logged in and got the no permissions text.
    See screen shot


    Why can't guests use the Today's Posts function?
