"view new posts" per page

Postby AGhead » Thu Apr 15, 2021

Just nosing around and see that Sometime when I refresh the View New Posts...
I have maybe zero to a couple posts.
Other times, like at this moment , I have 2 pages of posts.

Curious, what decides the number of posts?

No problem but it fascinates me a bit.
I think I asked it once and got sneered.

I could never figure out what triggers it to reset. It happens to everyone.

I've peeked in a few times the last few days. I usually go to "view new posts" for BS recent activity.
All weekend and today just now I get "No suitable matches were found".

Even when there are no new posts it usually still shows my read ones.

I'm still not complaining but just wondering if my experience over the last couple days is a shared one.

I screwed around trying to figure it out once. I do know that if I log out, the next time I log in the "view new posts" will be reset and I get "No suitable matches were found". If I leave the site and come back later, I may be required to log in (although I did not log out) and the "view new posts" may or may not have been reset. May have something to do with browser settings. I don't know. I live with it.

I never figured out how to change or even recreate a VNP search using the control panel. It must be possible in the code. Any php programmers here?

The site runs on open-source phpbb.

IDK and I'm not griping/whining but the last week(s) when I get on BS and tap "view new posts" as usual...
Iv'e been getting the
No suitable matches were found
.
It's been way more recently than it usually.
This morn I hit VNP and first thing was the 'No suitable matches were found.'
Never done that before...

Anyone else's experience?

There hasn't been much activity on the site of late. I get "No matches" pretty often as well. You should definitely see tdtwedt's posts though. If not then just go to the politics forum and you'll see most of them.

Here's a link you might also find helpful. AFAIK there is no button for this, but we may be able to add one.

UNREAD POSTS

edit: Click "Quick Links" in the upper left. From the drop down click: Unread Posts

I believe it is based on your last visit, so if you close the page and come back a few minutes later, it will be empty.
