    There is a plugin for that function, the one for the previous version we were using doesn't work with vb4, we've found a plugin that will work with this version, and we have to submit it to Canonical IS so they can check it for any security problems, so it may be a while before it is available again.

    This plugin was apparently not working with the previous version of vB4, since the upgrade a week or so, it now appears to be working.

    You will find the Unanswered Thread search button in the Search Forum button.

    There's also the Quick links->Unanswered posts menu item.

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    Which works in a completely different manner.

    The Unanswered Thread Seach button in the search menu - searches the specific forum you are in.

    The Quick Links option is one we built to at least allow people to search for unanswered threads, it works globally, it might well go now that we have the real tool available.

    While this would make to no sense to anyone outside the moderation team -

    @lisati - do you really want to see hundreds of spam ban infraction reports in an unanswered thread report

    I do use it, I like to have all sub-forums unanswered posts in on page sorted by date. Would userscripts be able to remove the junk parts ?
