I searched but couldn't find the answer. Is there a way to globally change the value from ALL to only a selected number of days? It can be changed for an individual forum but I'd like to change it for ALL forums globally.

Hello Terry and welcome to the forums,

Not sure if this will do what you want, but if you click HOME (top left), then View Recent Topics (in the set of selections below HOME on the right), you can set the number of days and it will span all parts of the forum except "Off Topics".

If this doesn't do what you'd like, we'll look some more. . . icon_smile.gif

That let me set the number of days, so I changed the default of 3 to 7 but then it reverted back to 3 when I picked "View Recent Topics". I guess the "View posts since last visit" will suffice for now, but I was really looking for an option that would pertain to ALL forums, last 7 days and it would stick without being reset. Thanks.

Hi Terry,

The way i get to where i believe you want to be is like you just described - i set the days and keep the "Recent Topics" window active, clicking on the Refresh periodically.

Many months ago, there was a way to do more what you describe, but when they made changes to the forum, some of that went away. . .

Hopefully, you'll fnd a way that works for you. . .
