[Suggestion] Change 'View Today's Posts' to show more posts
Instead of having the link View Today's Posts (Under Quick Links), which only shows threads over the last 24 hours...

What if we had it say View Recent Posts, and have it show threads from the past 5 days? (or 3 or 7). This would allow people that haven't been able to visit in the last couple of days to get a quick glance at the recent posts.

To get an idea of what I'm talking about.. this is what we currently have:
http://tech.reboot.pro/search.php?action=getdaily

and this is what would show if we made the change
http://tech.reboot.pro/search.php?action...ily&days=5

I think it'd boost activity as well, since people won't have to click so far in order to find more posts.

Thoughts?

The standard is excellent on my phone but not so on my computer. But I check it so regularly it doesn't really mind me. Perhaps show an option for it?

I'd like to see a 5 day "View Recent/New Posts" option.

But the View New Posts link will already do this... It will allow the user to view all threads that have been posted and not viewed yet.

Yeah, but for example if I click it now, I can only see one thread that's "new" since my last visit, not threads I haven't read/seen yet.

Is there any that you haven't seen? Regardless of what it gives you, it should give you the ones that are marked as unread anyways.

It gives you the posts that are new since your last visit to the board. So, if I click view new posts.. log off. Go do something. And come back two hours later. It wont show those posts again. Sometimes, if you click on a thread from it, and click it again.. it will show less results. Therefore you don't get a chance to look through each thread. At least that's my understanding and experience with it. I personally don't like that link at all. I never use it.

That's not the point. The whole idea in my OP is that it gives people the chance to see MORE threads. Easier and when they want them. Instead of having to right-click open each in a new window.. they can easily see the past 5 days of RECENT posts. Regardless of the last time they logged in.

I like the idea then... It wouldn't really affect me, but I have to understand that others aren't online as much as I am though, so they will miss the day's in between an interval of 1 day for that link to show them all of what has happened at TLF.

cheers
