    [Forum] Changing 'New Posts' to display last x posts or last x days?

    Hey guys,

    The forum that I run is fairly quiet as it's summer here (in New Zealand), and we haven't had much post activity.
    For the members who do come on and visit once every 2 days, or less, they aren't able to view all of the new posts since their last visit.

    Is there a way to change New Posts to show all posts from the last say.. 5 days, or show the last 50 threads?

    It's just something the forum users had been used to as we moved from phpbb to vBulletin.

    Hopefully you'll be able to help me out. Figured I may as well ask

    There is no option to set a time on the New Posts button. This will require modifying the code/template which is something you would ask about over on, the modification site.

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.
