Yesterday somebody asked to "bump" that old thread "I'll give up" to continue his tutorial. At almost the same time Gunther presented his "round robin" stuff, so I used that as a handle to ask what it was (in this other bumped thread).
Comments: bump. Another user pointed me to that.
Also yesterday I asked Gunther in the appropriate thread how he did this. Making a .nki file. This message disappeared.
In your user options, you can set the number of posts to display per page.
Just go to User Control Panel->Edit Options.
The two things to look at are: Number of posts per page and, Default thread Age cut off. Usually, only todays posts are shown.
Great point - but until very recently I could see a list of previous pages of posts . . . no longer can. After reading your post I checked my preferences in Control Panel and saw that I had 40 posts per page listed, and "show all posts." I clicked on "save changes" just in case, and we'll see.
