    20 most recent posts...?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Is there a way for users to change the value of the "last 20 posts"? For those of us in the opposite time one, we miss posts and only get to see the last 20 when we wake up.

    Ill probably miss the reply to this one (and yes, I know about the notification of posts, but it is more convenient to gt all the posts in a list.. even the ones we have not participate in [and yes, I know I just dangled a participle]). [flash=200,200] ;D[/flash]

    I love to be able to click the button marked, "view unread posts since last visit".
    I know its a handy little bugger on the other forums I visit/moderate/admin :)

    Its been a while but I think that used to be the way it was until people called for a change and we got the "20 most recent" instead.

    I didnt realise it only goes back 20 posts...

    Just assumed if it had a explosion around the bean it had new posts in the threads.

    Or am I missing something *:-/

    edit: ohh... didnt even realise that was there

    Havent been able to spend much time here recently so I use the "20 most recent", also use Search and put in an "a".

    Does come up with the same thread of course but at least I can go back days, weeks, etc or "all posts" if I had nothing else to do. *

    Also I can just search the particular areas that interest me.

    I have all the different forum bookmarked in a folder & "Open all in tabs".

    Bit longhand but the only workaround Ive found.

    Well if too many people "have great minds" then the server load would be huge and I would have to make a minimum number of letters in a search.

    I like the option to have 20 / 30 or 50... There is another such as New posts since last visit... However it all takes time and a hit on the server...


    I do like the 20 ( option to set higher would be great) as it is simple to book mark and less manual work...

    Ill put my hand up for "view posts since last visit"

    I realise it might not be feasable, but I find it really good on other forums that I belong to.

    Cheers
