Default Unanswered posts link on sidebar

Hey,

Have you thought of having an unanswered post link on the sidebar? It would be nice to be able to see all of the posts that have no replies to them. That's my suggestion.

Brian

I am in favor of that idea as well. I am, however, happy to see that the old http://p2p.wrox.com/active.asp resolves to the "Today's Posts" search page. =]

I've added the "Unanswered Topics" link in the left sidebar. Good suggestion. For now, I've limited it to most recent 30 days unanswered.

Nice feature; but it's a little buggy. Try navigating to one of the result pages (other than the first one) and you'll get a "no matches found" message....

Other than that: great idea...

Imar, I'm not getting the no matches found error. Just clicked through 5 or 6 pages of results and several topics on each with no errors. Am I understanding you right?

Neither do I now....

Maybe the server was still busy building up the pages when I tried?
