    New post button question

    Is there a way to change the number of posts it brings up? When I hit the button it only brings up 200 posts, That is about 24 hours worth of posts, so if you stop in every other day you miss quite a bit.


    Thanks

    You're probably already doing this, but when this happens to me (frequently), I just go to the main page and pull each forum up individually. The threads I have not yet read are in bold print.

    I'm pretty certain the number 200 has been deliberately set by the administrators.

    The 200 posts is an arbitrary number in a forum configuration, but one that can, if set too high cause some significant problems with performance. Two hundred is a fairly large number of thread titles to be read every time someone clicks New Posts, which is what happens.

    I'm not positive, but I believe that if you go through 50 of those 200 threads and then refresh, you will get 200 again, but not including those 50 you just read.

    BTW between the OP time and now there were 114 new posts.
