Site question

Why is it that some categories have page after page of old posts such as "bug hunt" which hasn't had a new post since May while others such as "what's it worth" dump everything that was posted before yesterday into the archives ? That is one of the most popular categories and when I clicked on it today to re-read a thread that is less than a week old it was gone and there was only ONE thread listed from yesterday.

Re: Site question

Change the Display Options when you first enter one of the sections. At the bottom, left.
Also, in your profile settings, it's supposed to be a global change across all the forums, but it doesn't seem to work properly.
Just go through each forum sections main page and change the Display Options to something longer.

Re: Site question

Thanks Joe. I found the settings on the bottom left of each section but everytime I go back after shutting down my computer I have to reset it again. Just thought it was kinda odd it's only like that on certain categories. No big deal.

Re: Site question

Try clearing the cookie by logging out, then shut the browser down, and log back in. I have the same issue... among others.
I'll bring it up in the back room.

Re: Site question

Changing it on the bottom of the forum page you are viewing is a 1 time temporary thing you have to go into your user CP and set the default to what you want it to be.

Re: Site question

Jim - go to <User CP> (one of the red bars across the top of the page)

Then look under "Settings & Options" in the "Thread Display Options" area.

Re: Site question

Can you send me a PM with a screen shot of before and after you go in and do the clear and reset the computer? That way it can help give a better understanding of the issue. It seems like currently you are the only one with this issue.
