        Does this mean the "hot posts" (unread) grouped by individual boards has disappeared? For example, http://www.chow.com/new_posts/3 will no longer bring up my unread posts for just the CA board. Same thing for SF and BC ( /1 and /85).

        1. re: PolarBear

          The main page is at http://www.chow.com/new_posts. And I guess for individual boards, just plug the board number into here http://www.chow.com/new_posts?board_i...

          1. re: PolarBear

            This was a slight oversight with regard to that link. We did a lot of housekeeping in that regard, and should be able to restore that pattern fairly easily. In the mean time, you can get to that page via /new_posts?board_id=3

            1. re: Engineering

              Thanks ChrisVR and Eng, I'll just keep my current links set up until you get things worked out. Thanks for all you do, BTW.

              Cheers,

              Dave

            Since yesterday (10-12-11), can't get into any unread posts following my usual method:

            http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8099...

            Instead I get: "Application Error"

            CHOW: Food. Drink. Fun.
            There's been a slight problem...

            Sorry, something's not working with this page. The CHOW team has been notified and will check it out.
            If there's something else we can provide in the meantime, please try searching:

            *Go to CHOW
            *Go to Chowhound
            *Go back to the previous page

              I don't know when it started, but I can't see them now, either.

              1. re: Stephanie Wong

                Same problem for the last few days. Running Firefox.

                1. re: Aromatherapy

                  still having problem on a MAC using Firefox, on an iPod wifi using Safari, and on a PC using Internet Explorer.

                  1. re: Stephanie Wong

                    Yep, same thing, still here too, and it's starting to drive me nuts! It doesn't strike me as a browser-related problem, but I'm using IE8 under Windows XP at the moment.

            2. Ok, Back to normal...almost. After marking a post as read site returns to "All of chowhound" posts instead of just the empty topic that was just read. The old way helped me keep track of where I was on the site. Don't like the new way. :/

                Agreed.

                Is this changed behavior intentional?

                1. re: meatme

                  No, this shouldn't be bouncing you around like this. We'll look into it, our apologies for the inconvenience in the mean time.

                  1. re: Engineering

                    Thank you, can't wait to get back to the old system. Its still sending me back to "All of chowhound"

                    1. re: Engineering

                      Same here, appreciate your efforts.

                      1. re: Engineering

                        Still taking me back to "All of chowhound" after marking a topic thread as read. Can this be ifxed?

                          1. re: shaebones

                            Thank you engineering for fixing this.

                            1. re: meatme

                              Seems to be working properly today.

                      2. Now it's not working at all. :/

                          I'm having the same issue. It's frustrating to the MAX.

                          1. re: shaebones

                            Strange, something unrelated seems to have gone wrong. Our apologies for the repeat performance, we should have it running again in the near future.

                            1. re: Engineering

                              Why not have an easily identifiable icon that users could click on that would take them to their unread posts?

                              The unintuitive method that you have right now is not user-friendly.

                              1. re: Engineering

                                My "Unread Posts" has been doing crazy things lately including showing me the unread posts for a different username even though I was logged in as myself.

                            2. Having this aspect of chowhound malfunctioning makes the site pretty unbearable to sift through..I hope its fixed soon.

                                Can someone please address this issue. At least to say you are working on it. Chowhound is unusable.

                                1. re: shaebones

                                  Engineering has replied to the thread indicating that they're working on the issue.

                                    That was over two weeks ago, so obviously they are not working too hard on it.

                                      The most recent reply was on Friday and indicates that it was a new problem that cropped up since the start of this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8099...

                                          I sure didn't read that in your reference.

                                          Also, are you really suggesting that the problem didn't exist when it was first reported back in September? that it started afterwards?

                                          1. re: DPGood

                                            There was initially a problem with the link having changed, which Engineering responded to a couple of weeks ago.

                                            Then, there was a more recent problem with the whole Unread Posts function being broken, which they responded to on Friday indicating they were working on getting it fixed again.

                                            So, two different problems, both of them real.

                                              Thnx for the update--good luck resolving the issues.
