    Viewing threads

    Set the permissions in each forum to *Display all Threads*. As it is now if there are no new posts or threads in 1 day, the threads are hidden and the user has to dig them up by clicking onto *view all threads in the past 30 days* or whatever.....Can anybody offer any help?

    Your users might have set their own daysprune setting in their user preferences. You can mass update all users by running this query:

    UPDATE user SET daysprune = 0
    This will make it so all user prefs are set to use the forum defaults for daysprune.

      Well, I don't know what a *query* is...

      I looked in the vBulletin options and then went to Thread Display Options as this is where it *should* be located.....evidently it is not there.

      Speak english please-

        You run queries here:

        Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Execute SQL Query

        Then choose the appropriate query and click on 'Continue'.
        To run queries you first need to give yourself permission to run queries in the Admin CP. To do this, edit this section of config.php:

        // The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
        // See the above entries for more information on the format.
        // Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
        // to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
        $canrunqueries = 'x';

        ...with x being your userid number.
