it's hidden in "quick links"

mikec may have taken my suggestion of disabling search functions (new posts is considered a search) for the time being to take some load off the server until he can find the problem.

Ok, just thought I'd double check. Strange, I suppose that it may be present there just for mods but not sure why that would be.

Default Re: What happened to the "New Posts" link?

i am only judging from speculation, but i think mikec took my suggestion in temporarily disabling search functions (new posts is a search, believe it or not), but probably allows them for mods/admins still so that they can find things if necessary.

us normal people get a permissions error when clicking on it. the reason for doing this is because of all the things a message board does, searching is the most cpu intensive thing, and the problems appear to be cpu usage related.

of course, i don't know if i'm right about any of that, i'm just guessing, lol.

You're right I am trying to see what is using up CPU. It isn't the search function I will enable it shortly.

hmm, it did seem to improve when it was disabled... not saying that's the cause of it though.

hopefully you will find it soon
