New Post question
I think one of the most valuable tools in this forum is the ability to find New Posts with one click. However, I think there must be some setting wrong since I miss some postings. I only know this when I look for a response to a specific thread that I think should have been answered.... like my own posts.
For example, if I last logged in 3 hours ago, New Posts may show posts from only the last 2 hours. (I made those numbers up.) On the other hand, sometimes clicking New Posts shows me all posts for the last few days.
I thought maybe this was a time zone issue, but I can find no time settings of any kind in the user control panel. Since it works both ways (too few new posts and too many new posts) that is probably not the answer. Is it just that the board is so active that while I'm logged in, or for a short time afterwards, that posts come in and fall into a black hole? I use another forum that uses the last login time, not the last logout, so this never happens.
