    I understand what you are getting at, but, the way the forum currently works is by reading a cookie that is set when you log in. The next time you log in, after a previous session, the "New Posts" function will read any new posts made since your LAST VISIT, not a period of 24 hours. This function cannot work unless your account ID is recognized by logging in.

    You may be correct though, that there might be a way to view all new posts over a 24 hour period lapse without having to be logged in as this would not require a dedicated account cookie data. However, this would lead to a lot of new posts in your query.

    I dunno, just tossing my thoughts out there.

    Oh, I did notice under "Quick Links" there is a menu option for a "View Todays Posts" function. Not sure if its there when logged out but it might be a workaround for you.

    I understand the reasoning behind the necessity of logging into your own account, but what I guess I'm trying to get at is a way to easily access recent posts without having to use the stupid iPhone keyboard. Maybe a tab for "Threads updated in the last 24 hours"? Is that even possible?

    The forum software may allow it if we changed from cookie to database based tracking. As George said, though, we are restricted by what the software allows. If changing to the database tracking method, sorry, but database tracking is not something I am prepared to do because of the obvious overhead.

    I won't feign an understanding of what you just said, but if it costs the site more to do this, then consider my request withdrawn. Thanks for the reply, Bumper.

    As I said I don't know anything about iPhones, but as a reference librarian my life is research so here are a few items that may help.

    Hopefully one of the above will provide the solution to your problem.

    Thanks, but the first doesn't work and the last 3 are only for jailbroken phones.
