When I log on I see highlighted in bold all the threads that contain a post or posts new to me so I click on the left icon and I'm taken straight to them.

However, there appears to be a time out for this feature even though i stay logged on to the forum.

e.g.
I log on. 10 threads with new posts. I look at 2 threads and then I'm called away but leave the site open. I come back 20 or 30 mins later expecting to continue looking at the remaining new posts but they've gone and nothing is highlighted.

Can this be changed?

There is I believe a time out function on this website.

Next time you do a search for new posts, go up to the top of your browser, click on the address to highlight it, and ctl+c to copy it. Ten if you want to go back to your original search rersults, you can paste the address back into your browser by pressing ctl+v.

I usually look at the time of the oldest and then work back. When I lose my list, most of the posts are on the 'beekeeping forum' on the home page, and a few lower down.

Yes its a time out function.
I set it up at the begining because if I extend the time over 3 minutes it shows more members online than really there are.

I set it low so everyone knows that those members showing as online either still are or have been in the last 3 minutes.

Admin,

Are you short-changing the popularity of the forum. I wonder how other fora do their stats for those 'on-line' and 'record number on-line at one time' etc?

I know - lies, d* amn lies and statistics - and all that.

Regards, RAB
