When logged in, it's possible to view posts since last visit. However, if you close the browser before reading all of the post the list is reset.

Is there a way to manually set the date and time of the last visit so you can view posts earlier than last visit?

I have a dummy account for when I accidentally do this. A way to see all posts (newest first) would probably be better though.

If you don't use the dummy account often it would be a big list. 😃

Have you tried setting your clock, before you log into the forum, to sometime in the future or sometime in the past, to see what happens?

Otherwise, I got nothin'.

I did consider future time but those messages probably haven't been created yet. Maybe setting the clock to the past might work. I will try it.

I did try the search function. It didn't work or I couldn't get it to work.

Edit: Setting the clock to the past did not work. The forum probably works by post number against my profile.

Thanks

When you log into the forum, it knows when you last logged in. Is that record kept in the forum server or in your computer, in a cookie perhaps?

I can see who is logged into the forum and when he last logged in.
