It would be handy to be able to view un-answered posts, that way, we attempt to answer them. Way back when I first created my account this was possible, but now seems to have disappeared.

Well if they don't have a reply it's unanswered :P.  I'll see if I get some time and write a mod for this.

i usually just scroll down the list looking for the ones with 0 replies.  Or by "unanswered" do you mean nobody has responded yet (0 replies) or yet-to-be-solved?  cuz if it's the 2nd, then our solved button would be better to have.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

I was thinking the same.  If it's the latter then you need a solved featured.

and if it's the first...well in the forum index just click on the "replies" column to re-sort the posts based on replies. It will show the 0 replies first.

The problem with this method is that you don't actually get them in any date order then... I want to see the posts with 0 replies, but ordered by date, so I can reply to the most recent ones and work backwards.

in order to do that the search is gonna have to be extended to allow you to enter a time limit on the sorting by posts.  if you click on the sort by replies,  you will notice that it does in fact show all the 0 replies first.  the problem is not that since there is no time limit on it, it shows all 0 replies in the database or maybe there's some limit on the query itself already.  I think the earliest 0 reply thread is from like febuary i think.  So you have to scroll down until you reach the 0 replies within the time frame you desire.

I admit that that's not quite exactly the same thing, but it's the closest you're gonna get.  Yes I realize that making an option to query 0 replied posts since your last visit and then adding a button somewhere would be really easy.  But once again, we (ober and steelman) aren't gonna go and hack the board, because then everytime they upgrade to a new release, they are gonna have to go back and rehack it all over again.  Just one hack doesn't sound too inconvenient, but you have to consider that that's not the only thing around here that other people (including ourselves) would like to be added/altered to be more convenient/better suit our needs.  And having a list a mile long of things needing to be hacked is not convenient at all.

So I'm afraid if that if you really want to see that option in SMF (and I too would like to see that option, btw), your best (only) route would be to go to the SMF boards and request a mod or actually you might even request having it added to the core for future versions of SMF
