A number of years ago, someone requested the "last 50 forum posts" page (https://www.highinterestsavings.ca/last-50/). I don't use it all that often but, occasionally, I take a gander and see if there's anything pressing I missed replying to.

On the page this evening, only the last 20 are displayed. Can we have it revert to the last 50?

Thanks,
Doug

I took a quick look at this -- it appears to have always been doing "last 50 posts" even now, but that's different from "last 50 threads". It's somewhat odd that the default behavior is based on posts. The easiest thing to do might be to simply double the "last 50 posts" to "last 100 posts".

Hrm, I wondered if my ad blocker was interfering with this website so I disabled it for this domain name but still only see 20-21 posts/threads. It doesn't need to be "50 posts"; just the last "50 threads," basically. 🙂

Oh, are you saying the forum software is counting the "posts" within the threads and that's why only 21 threads are displayed on that page? That's odd.

Your workaround is a good one but I wonder if that might be something Simple::Press might be able to fix in a future release? Are you on the current version of Simple::Press, by the way, and how often do you update it?

Cheers,
Doug

Hi Eva,

Yep, I did that once last year when I knew I couldn't go through all the posts I hadn't read from prior absences.

See this screenshot:

Click on the second icon to the right of the verbiage indicating number of unread topics. sf-cool

Cheers,

Doug, you are life saver. Thank you Very much!!!

AHA! But list of 10 'Unread and recently updated topics' topics still appear on the list? I thought that will be gone??? Only counter of 'new' has disappeared.
