New Posts feature non functioning

CA, SF, Wine and BC boards show nothing new for the day. When I go to the individual boards (as if to create a new thread) I see all the new posts that should appear when I click on my links set up for the new posts for each. Que pasa?

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. Similarly, I can't get first page of Unread Posts (#1-50) and SFBA... or maybe my problem's unrelated...

      Probably unrelated, but so long as you have my attention, does work ?

      EDIT: made this comment based on an incorrect assumption. All of the "new posts" page issues are likely related.

        Having same problem for last couple nights; The above ink does NOT work for me either.

        1. re: Engineering

          No -- goes to blank page of Unread Posts for SFBA.

          1. re: Engineering

            Are you making any attempt to actually fix this?

          2. Yes, unread post function is broken. Site use unbearable w/o it. :(

            1. Not working for me either this morning.

              1. This seems to be an old bug that has resurfaced. To verify: on a board where no NEW flags are appearing, can you click into a thread (to mark it "read"), click back to the board, and refresh?

                The old bug was that, if you had never read any of the 50 posts appearing on the current page of a board, the NEW flag would not appear for any of those posts. This is definitely happening again, but I'd like to verify that this is the only issue.

                1. re: Engineering

                  I do not believe that any of the boards I checked, including this one, had 50 unread posts.

                  1. re: Engineering

                    No UNread posts show up for me on SF, CA, Site Talk, General Topics, Food Media, Not about Food boards for me.

                  2. Same problem here. The default page (new post for all of CH) shows posts, but the five individual boardsI check every day show no new posts, even though navigating to those boards directly shows posts with New flags.

                      My apologies, but I think there may be some confusion with terminology on my end. To make sure we're on the same page, can you please provide links to where NEW is working and where it is not?

                      1. re: Engineering

                        This is the feature we're talking about

                        EDIT: I just looked at and it seems to be working again. Thanks!

                        EDIT AGAIN: Ooooh not only is it working but you've fixed something that's been broken for YEARS, which didn't allow us to view unread posts past the current 49. niiiice!

                        1. re: Chris VR

                          We haven't changed anything yet, which raises a large number of questions about the nature of this problem. I'll do some digging to see what might be going on.

                          1. re: Engineering

                            Ah. Yes, now it's not working.

                            EDIT: I should say, it's not working consistently, because I'm getting different results when reloading various boards and the main URL

                            Right now it's showing me 5 posts with timestamps from 20-22 minutes ago. A minute ago it showed me one post (I didn't note the timestamp.) Something is screwy, for sure.

                            1. re: Engineering

                              Unread posts is also not working on the Boston area board.

                              1. re: Engineering

                                As of today Monday March 19th new posts is STILL not working on the SFBA Board...I have tried it on 3 different browsers.....blank page of unread posts.

                                1. re: ChowFun_derek

                                  I just tried the SFBA board and got only page 2 or posts 51-63 w/ no option for older posts. But if I go through Chowhound Discussions at top of page and click SFBA I get the full pages.

                            2. re: Engineering

                              Open New Posts for, e.g., the Site Talk board:

                              Result: "There are no new posts."

                              Navigate directly to the Site Talk board:

                              Result: Lots of posts with a New flag, and lots of old posts, too.

                              Repeat for Manhattan, Outer Boroughs, New York State boards: Same result.

                              Log out / log in and try again: Same result.

                              1. re: meatme

                                And a new problem too, at least for me. When I edited the above to correct a typo, all of the embedded carriage returns had disappeared, requiring that I reinsert them during editing.
