I used to only have posts that would go away after 24 hrs (I think). Now I have what seems like hundreds of pages of posts that never go away. Is there some setting that got changed? It really is a pain and I am sure it is taking up computer space. Russ

I'm sorry I just don't understand what you are saying. What are daily posts? I used to click on "View new posts" to track the forum, but I changed over to "View active topics". It seems to work a bit better.

I click view new posts.

It used to be things I hadn't read. Now it is just a sort of every post made with the newest at the top

Yes the daily list has become almost the same as the View Active Topics and I like it.

The ones you haven't read are/should be at the top and have an icon to show you haven't read them.

I used to hit View Active Topics periodically because inexplicably several posts wouldn't show on my Daily post, but now I don't have to do that as often. I scroll down about every other day and end up picking up a thread or 2 that never showed up on the Daily Post.

That would be if you pressed "View Unread Posts" which is what I have bookmarked. I skip all the other login and drill down stuff. One button press and I'm done. I don't think the way that works has changed at all

Yeah I set my bookmark to go directly to "View New Posts", it gets right to the most recent updates which is what I care about.

Tiz what I do, the down side is you get so engrossed in the current stuff that you dont really get to read some brilliant older threads till someone else makes one surface. There is so much valuable info in the older threads.
