The old SOS forum would have as many as the last 25 pages of posts listed when you clicked New Posts. The new forum only shows a few, and I am not certain it is complete.

Tonight, as other nights, I peruse the New Posts and return later to them only to find the list shorter on the same date I am on. Posts that I could not get to appear to be missing if I did not read them the last time I logged on.

Perhaps it me, wouldn't surprise me, but is there a way to configure New Posts to work the same way as the old forum, or will the site eventually work that way, or not?

Thank You.

You can always go to the main page, you get there by clicking on Save Our State up in the left. Then just go through the areas of interest. All the threads are there starting with the newest that have been posted or responded to. There may be another way, but AG would know that. Right now he's sort of busy with stuff.

There are some changes we can make in that regard. They were set for performance and bandwidth preservation at first. Individuals should be able to override the forum default by visiting their control panel and choosing the length of time they want to display the threads from. Find this in your control panel: Default thread age cut off
Then just set it to how old the threads are that you want to go back when searching.
Also, the cookie in your computer will log in the threads you already visited and eliminate them as you ask for "new posts"
And lastly, "new posts" are different from "todays posts"
