I don't understand what is going on with the What's New button. I started the thread Unknown Czech Bayonet on the Militaria-Swords-Bayonets- Edged Weapons Forum at 3:22 and hit the What's New button at 4:15. I see only 17 messages and mine is too old to be on there, 53 minutes later. At other times I see 3 or 4 pages under What's New. There used to be a Active Posts button you could hit which would show more posts than would the What's New button. The Active Posts button seems to have gone away in the recent upgrade.

I don't want to have to go to several different forums to see what new messages were posted in the last few hours - but the way the What's New button works, that seems to be necessary.

Added: I see that hitting the What's New button at 5:19 results in 4 pages of 63 posts, the earliest of which was at 3:39 or 1 hour and 40 minutes previous.

:angry:

Have you tried the new post button?

Vic,

Actually, I think I have sometimes used the New Posts button and sometimes used the What's New button, without noticing any difference. I mentioned this issue some time back but decided not to pursue it because it seemed your plate was overfull at the time.

I tried both just now and both gave me 67 posts. I was just irritated earlier when I started a new thread and 53 minutes later it was too old to show up when I hit What's New.

What is the difference supposed to be between the two buttons and what are the parameters?

Thanks,
Bill

Your post probably got pushed down due to activity. There should be new posts of posts less then 60 minutes and all post for the day.

I know where to find new posts of less than 60 minutes but where do I find all posts for the day? "All posts for the day" is what I am looking for and what I can not find.
