  • Vanishing Threads

    Hi Doug,

    Just wondering if there is any kind of time limit set on the threads? Meaning, after so many days of inactivity will any of them vanish into cyber heaven? If I come back a year from now will everything still be here for me to sift through?

    Threads will never automatically 'disappear' in the literal sense. You do, however, have a default display of 'last 30 days' so some might appear to be gone. There's a dropdown at the bottom of every forum page to control this, along with sorting order.

    You can permanently change this in your control panel

      Forum Search Function

      I was wondering how the forum New Posts is set up. Seems like when I return to find a thread the function will bring up a whole different batch of posts. I have been saving the links to find threads as they do not stick in one place it seems? Posting activity does not appear to be the issue, as the...

      How do I view older threads?
      by albatrosss
      There are times when I review a current thread and later when I go back to really study it I can no longer find it. Now I know enough to record the title of the thread or to save it as a favorite. Is there any way that one can review all older threads which no longer appear on the current board?...

      where did it go
      by Bob Walden
      With all the great help available I am having a problem. I'm thinking there is a simple solution others are using. After reading an answer to a thread how are people marking them so as to return to them later. I realise there is an archive but how are you getting back to a subject w/o going though all...

      New Posts feature
      by Caitlin
      I have found the New Posts feature invaluable - and is basically how I access the forum now. HOWEVER it doesn't seem completely accurate. I notice I'm missing out on a number of posts - for instance there was a new post in the April Contest this morning, but it didnt come up on the New Posts list. ...

      Threads going unnoticed
      by DJ Dubovsky
      I know I'm not the only one who has noticed that every now and then someone will post a thread that will go totally unnoticed. I don't know exactly why this happens but I thought I would bring it to everyones attention. If you post a thread and notice no one answers it or no on responds to one of...
