  • View Age for external.php

    Hi There
    I have noticed that with using the external.php JS feed, it does not display threads after a certain date, even if the default view age is : show all threads for the forum. How am I able to change this, IE I want the JS feed to show ALL threads.. thanx for the help

    It'll only show the 15 newest threads.
    Changing that would require code modification, I recommend you ask for help with that on www.vbulletin.org

      I have set the thread limit to 15 (var max = 15 and set the default view age for the forum, and it was displaying the latest 15 threads in the past but in this forum there aren't many threads and they are mostly old so the external feed is not showing the older threads.

        Hmmm... how old are they?
        As far as I know the threads are fetched from some kind of cache, so it could be that old threads aren't in there anymore... I'm not 100% sure though.

            Do you have any code modifications or plugins?
            If so, please disable plugins and reupload any code modifications you may have...

              No plugins or modifications installed..
              I have had a look at external.php and although my programming knowledge is very limited, I am sure this line of code has something to do with it:
              PHP Code:
              $cutoff = (!$vbulletin->options['externalcutoff']) ? TIMENOW $vbulletin->options['externalcutoff'] * 86400
