New Posts

Hi.

I'm starting here every time with the link "new posts" https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/search.php?search_id=newposts. But I really don't understand the query behind it. Sometimes I get 2 pages new posts. Today for example I got only one single post.

I would prefer that this link shows for example the last 50 posts (by time stamp) independent of my last actions on the forum.

Thank you for the explanation. I never log out, and I use the forum on several devices. So that causes the different behaviour.

I stay with my wish. 50 last post independently of the actions.

Is there a search url that can show the most recently updated 100 (or 200) threads? That would be really really useful. ('New posts' with a guaranteed minimum number of threads would be equivalent to that.) (Or maybe 'New posts' for at least the last 7 days.)

I could focus on any unread posts in pages 2 to 4 of the results, and avoid the newest frequently-updated threads in page 1, where the activity was still high. I.e. I could in effect comprehensively cover the entire forum.

Another point might be a shorthand to filter out threads from English / non-English forums. Thanks.

- The 'Quick links' button at the top-left, has an 'Active topics' option, this does exactly what I want. It lists threads updated in the past 7 days.

- I have added a section re. 'Quick links', here:
