Search for threads with 0 replies

    Currently in XenForo when I want to search for threads that have had 0 replies, by entering '0' in the 'Minimum number of replies:'- field I get the following error:

    The following error occurred:
    Please specify a search query or the name of a member.

    Can we have it that XF accepts a '0'-value without entering a search query or membername?

    Reason: that way our Moderators (and users) can search and see which threads have had 0 replies and do what's needed. For example: to 're-start' those threads or when you run a support-website for patients, moderators or regular users can just with one click view all the posts with NO reply on it and make sure that the patient indeed gets his or her reply. Etc.

    (trivia: suggested also 8,5 (!) years ago for the once great vBulletin: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...earch-flexibility?s=&postid=331141#post331141... and funnily enough XF also doesn't support it by default now)
    Please do [like] this first posting if you think it is a good feature suggestion for XenForo

    I would like to re-request this functionality for XenForo. (It's not only with entering '0', but any other number when the error-message comes up if you did not specify a name or other criteria).
    In our case/on my website it's only important to search for *any* thread that has zero replies.

    I was wondering, are there more websites that could use it like this?

    Totally agree. I know for a fact that my members love this feature (currently vb).

    This is also present in phpBB3 and is a nice feature to have

    This is something that should have been included from the start. Trying to search for members that have 0 posts for pruning (another missing feature, by the way) is virtually impossible in the ACP.

    I want to set the number of messages X in time period Y eg LESS THAN > [3] messages in the last [MONTH]

    Very frustrating it's not there in admin searches including setting up nag emails.

    We have MORE THAN so why not LESS THAN?

    I agree - but don't forget to "like" the first post so KAM can see it's a much-desired feature request. ;)
