    Amount of posts since last visit ?

    is there a limit on the amount of "New Posts" that can be displayed ? It does not seem to matter how long it is between visits I never get more than 3 pages of New Posts . Is there a user setting that I have missed somewhere ?
    TIA

    Hi Colin,

    There is a recommended vBulletin default which we follow.

    When you log in and check 'new posts', the server software performs a search against the database and returns up-to this default number of results. The results are spread across existing and new threads - which will total up to 3 pages of threads containing those new posts. All other posts returned that are greater than this default value (since your last visit) are discarded. The advice is to keep this value so as to not to affect server performance.

    I hope this explains.

    Cheers

    I'd say (without checking) that you and David have a different value set on posts per page..
