    Default New Posts Tweek

    I tend to browse the forum between say... midnight and 3pm London Ontario time. I still pop in a couple times daily unless I have stuff going on. Unfortunately, by the time I log on and hit new posts, the system as already turned over and I see only threads that have been updated after midnight. This means that if I want to participate in discussions, especially the interesting ones that take place during the evening London Ontario time, I have to look through the individual forums. This isn't nearly as fun or convenient as hitting the "new posts" button.

    I realize this is likely not an problem for anyone else, but if there was a way to make it so that the cut off wasn't midnight but like, that would be just super.

    If you go to the quick links tab up where new posts is, you can select todays posts which will show you all of the threads that were updated in the last 24 hours or something like that.

    Doesn't totally solve the problem but it may help.

    What about changing the time on here? Did you update it to your time zone, would that help?
    Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

    I didn't even know that it did that! I'll play around and see what I can figure out. I thought it showed the last 24 hours of posts?

    This hasn't happened to me luckily.

    Sometimes it does show me posts from “yesterday“. But that seems to happen only irregularly, maybe 20% of the time. All other times i get max of 1-2 thread hits from after midnight only. Yet I will go into the individual forums and see threads that have been updated or that I have not seen before, so they just aren't coming up on results.

    I can get posts from 3, 4, 5 + days ago by hitting new posts.
