What happened to the old Hot Posts function that morphed into "new_posts/show"

brentk Sep 30, 2011 07:31 AM

My preference for surfing the Chowhound website is to look at new posts on the forums I follow. It used to be simple with the old Hot Posts function and then it got slightly more complicated when you had to go to the "new_posts/show" format.

As of yesterday, that format no longer works and I get a "Sorry, we can't find that page" message.

Now I have to go to each forum I follow and see everything that is posted, which I really don't want to do.

Suggestions, please.

    It's there, just at http://www.chow.com/new_posts now. I had the same question and was worried it had gone away again!

        The /new_posts/show version of the url was the byproduct of an old error; the URL is simply /new_posts now.

        With regards to your outer boroughs link, does it look like /new_posts/show?board_id=19 or like /new_posts/19 ?

        In either case, /new_posts?board_id=19 should work for the time being.

            We should have the /new_posts/19 version working again some time today. Thank you for your patience.
