    ​Oh, come on, Wayne, this can't seriously be 'as designed'.

    A VM is not a forum post, so it shouldn't appear under 'Forums > Today's Posts', and it certainly shouldn't appear without a title, to claim otherwise is totally bonkers.

    OK, you said 'Kind of as designed', which I guess we should translate from vB-speak into English as, 'Blimey, that's another cock-up'.
    The search should return all content except that specifically excluded. I probably have the JSON messed up which is causing the issue.

    Take it how you will. I don't think it really matters. If it worked perfectly, I think you'll still find fault.

    Agreed. It sounds crap. Today's content embraces topics, it embraces VM messages that appear in today's posts. It may include blogs and CMS at some point?

    Has today's posts taken on a new definition?
    ​Blogs and blog comments already show up in Today's posts. ALL new content shows up in one place. People used to complain in VB4 that only forum posts showed up.

Yes the lack of a title should be fixed, it should be "Visitor Message for USERNAME" or something. A lot needs to be fixed on Today's Posts, including what forum (or otherwise) each topic originates from.
    I am not a big fan (or a fan at all) of the visitor message function—. I think it detracts from the forum.

    That being said, visitor messages are intended for a particular individual (even though they don't carry the expectation of privacy that "PMs" do), they just are , there is no reason why every reader should be presented with every visitor message to anyone, when they perform a time-based search—whether "new posts" or "today's post."

    If you could arrange it so that the reader would be presented with VMs *to* them within either search (but not VMs to other people), I could (maybe) be persuaded that that was a reasonable approach.

    It is confusing and bad form. Whether it be fixed, changed, modified, my personal opinion is that it should not be seen in today's posts.
    Ok, it may be as designed but from what I see so far, it ain't acceptable. Hence the http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-9839 link inclusion.
    Agree or disagree, vote or not vote. We are messing around here and this takes even more time.............

    Apologies for anything they maybe construed as non diplomatic.

    I get the privacy and visitor message thing but it does look rather strange without its title.

    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.
    I completely disagree, even in vB4 and vB3. I have always had Today's Posts exposed in the UI when logged in. I like to be able to find threads I have read as well as onces I haven't read. I have both Today's Posts and New Posts available to members (and nowadays the Activity stream as well).
