    [SOLVED] Getting started in the forum

    When I get some rare free time, I like to surf the forums looking for unsolved posts to help out with. I find that very often, someone else has already put up as good (or better) answer than I had. Is there a way to find the posts within a forum that have no replies, so that I can more quickly find the posts that need help?

    Hi reedk.

    Go to "Advance Search". Then scroll down to the field " Find Threads with:" set it to "At Most 0".

    If you are doing this frequently, after a few days you may want to also restrict your results to the last day by setting the filed " Find Threads with:" to "Yesterday and Newer".

    If you are particularly knowledgeable on one subject, you may also add a keyword on the "Keyword" field. For instance, nfs, samba, raid, etc.

    I hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.

    In the previous version of the Forum, we had a menu selection to find Unanswered Post, unfortunately that plugin doesn't work with the new version, we have found a newer version of the plugin, but have to submit it ot Canonical IS, so they can check it for security problems, so it may take a while to implement it again.
