    My oh my this is a busy forum!

    I'm only able to visit the forum in the evenings so I always head for http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/find-new/posts to see the new posts since my last visit.

    The problem is, that page us limited to 200 posts (5x pages) so I always miss stuff :(

    Is there a way around this 200-new-posts limitation?

    Cheers!

    Hello Roger,
    I'm not sure about the 200 new posts but I usually look at Recent at the bar at the top and spy

    I think you are missing stuff because looking at new threads does not show you follow up of thread as does not come up again on list if you looked at thread - for this you need to look at Recent threads. Difficult to explain but have copied this from Resources section which might explain it better.
    NEW POSTS
    New posts will show you the last 200 new posts in the forum. But only those that are NEW TO YOU. If you have seen the post before it will not show up in New Posts. So if you have opened a thread, the forum assumes you have read all the posts within and will not show you that thread again until there is a new post added to it.

    New posts is a great way to catch up if you've been away from the forum for a few days and want to see what you've missed. Read away and every time you reload the New Posts page it will show the latest 200 posts that you have not seen and hide all those you have read.

    Recent Posts
    Clicking recent posts simply returns the latest 200 posts whether you have seen them before or not. Recent posts is the best way to monitor the forum when you are visiting very regularly or are constantly online.

    You can filter out certain headings. For instance I filter out the U Shaped Lounge and read that separately. This then leaves more space for all the other threads.

    Recent or new there doesn't seem to be any way to see more than the last five pages. TBH I never look beyond the first page, anything older than that is just history. :)

    If there is an area which interests you I can only suggest going to that specific section, such as Continental Travel or Tech/Mech General where all threads with something new in them will be in bold.

    But I wouldn't worry about out missing something, active threads always resurface at some point. :)

    You can always do a search for a topic and it will bring up all in thread as a list

    In your settings you can ignore some of the threads that are of no interest to you which will reduce what you are presented with to look at.
