Hate to critique, but when I do, I hope I do it in a way that is respectfully beneficial. Well, at least to me, but I hope others as well.

Is there a way to increase the recent posts thread?

Since most of my web surfing has been by phone lately (a pain in my butt), I sometimes do not get here as often as I like to. As with nearly every messageboard I go to, the recent posts thread is the 1st place I head as it is the easiest way for me to catch up on what I missed.

Your last board, I remember it was set to 100 posts which almost always worked for me when I came back.

I don't know how much this board is set to, but it seems to be, I would estimate around 25 posts. I know when I get to the end of it, there have been a few times I haven't seen a post I remember, including today. I'm sure I'm missing out on posts because of this.

I would like to get here more often and not miss anything and I do the best I can. But when those times arise and a lot of posting has taken place since I last was here, I would like it to be easier for me to catch back up.

Any chance you can up the number of post to that thread? Thanks! Smiley

I am unable to set the number of posts but I can tell you what will help if you take a few extra steps.

Click "Recent Posts" (I put a hyperlink at the top of the pages)
Scroll down to the bottom.
Change the maximum number of results to whatever number you want. It defaults to 20.
Click "search"
I just tested it by changing 20 to 200. It showed the last 200 posts.
In all honesty, that is more respectful of people who are on slow connections or old computers. It doesn't force them to load a page with 100 posts.
This forum is VERY similar to proboards, but it's not quite as flexible as version 4.

I understand your predicament and thanks for the work around suggestion. When Im certain I am not seeing everything I will try that. I understand about large numbers loading slow. That is why I had my board set to 50. This board reminds me of version 4 minus just a couple of tiny features, but I like it just fine.

I suspect it is exactly that.
