    Default How do I create a direct shortcut/bookmark to New Posts

    I use my phone for a fair bit of internet browsing. On one espresso forum I frequent, I'm able to save a direct shortcut/bookmark to New Posts. That's very convenient in my situation as it saves me a bunch of tapping on a small screen. When I tried to create a similar shortcut on SRP, it just gave me a message which said, " Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." Is there any way around this? Thanks.

    I like to use the application "Tapatalk" instead of using my phone's browser.

    +1 on tapatalk, it's probably the most used app on my iPhone. I can't remember the last time I was on srp through a browser

    Thanks for the link, but I think that's the exact same way I was doing it before. Thanks for the Tapatalk suggestion, but I don't go in for appifying the internet. I'm looking for a solution that'll work on any browser.

    It seems to me that SRP's New Posts are being run through the search function, and the link above shows that in the URL. I think each time a user hits the New Posts button, it creates a new search. I don't think it lets users save a search, at least not for very long. And, like I said, that other forum lets me bookmark the Recent Topics. Perhaps it's a forum-software feature.

    It's not the end of the world for me. I just have to hit the New Posts button like everyone else. It'd just be easier to access it from my browser's bookmarks.

    You have to type it in the address block and bookmark it BEFORE you hit enter. The forum changes it as soon as you do.

    Code:

    should work. it is the new link created with the searchid that will not work for your bookmark.
