Jesse,

Given that traffic these days is much less than it was . . . .

would it be possible to change the board default to display the <Last 3 months> of posts?

ATM its <Seven Days> - which often reveals NO Posts . . . . requiring the user to reveal more MANUALLY . . . .

Just a thought . . .

Chris, I searched for about 30 minutes, but I could not find a setting to let me do that.

If you have an idea where I should look or what I should look for let me know.

The only way I can see to do it is to go to Active Posts and select how far you want to search back to (up to one year) and press go :(

Past six months active posts

http://www.promusicproducts.com/forum/phpBB2/search.php?st=1800&sk=t&sd=d&sr=topics&search_id=active_topics

The number of past days searched is determined by the number in Red, in this case 180

30 days equals 1 month as far as the search goes

Past nine months active posts 9x30=270

I've had a poke around Jesse, and it seems that it CAN'T be set at board level . . . .

(I use phpBB on my own forum - and I can't find anything in the ACP . . . )

Users should be AWARE that THEY can set it in the UCP and then it should STAY (for them).

[Edit: My MISTAKE. They CAN change the setting, but it reverts to <7-days> when IN the Forum - while REMAINING at <3-Months> in the UCP :roll: How useful is THAT :evil: ]

Given the level of traffic we're seeing - I would try <3 months> . . . so you avoid seeing NOTHING

and have to go and change the setting from <7-days> EVERY TIME. :roll:

I would think that the older posts are just as important as the newer, considering how many excellent posts we have from the time when the Fusion was new and fresh and how many of us keep coming back to it and can't remember things that are not so well documented. :D

I did ask the question in phpBB forum and apparently its the way it is by design. It would need an EXTENSION to be written to alter it.

Still doesn't explain WHY altering it in the UCP - DOESN'T DO ANYTHING

Otherwise, it IS possible to edit the core files and alter the "7" in there.

Only problem with that is that when the phpBB software gets a version update, it will revert, and someone will need to re-edit THAT file again . . . .
