Default 'all my posts' cant be viewed.

I was wondering why I can't see all my posts under the ' view all posts' link. It only goes back a few months.

The site only archives 500 post. The last 500 show.

I've changed it to 2000. If you're looking for something and temporarily need more PM me and I can make it whatever you need but I don't want to leave it there because it affects site performance. We've never had this come up before but then there are only a handful of members with more than 500 posts.

Thank you Kerry. Not anything particular but if you could leave it that way for a few days it would be helpful.

Don't know what you're looking for but the advanced search is probably a better way than looking through 5300 posts one at a time. This is probably why no one has ever asked about the 500 limit before. That and there are only 18 of us with more than 500 posts.

In the advanced search, you can search for YOUR (or someone elses) posts in particular forums. For instance, outside of the getting started, introductions, etc, you've had 788 posts and INITIATED 25 threads. You can also add a keyword to the search. For instance you've made 8 posts that had "Eckold" in them.

Do it however you want. I'll leave the cap at 6000 for a few days unless I see an impact on the site performance.
