    I'm not exactly certain what you're after so I'll explain a few ...

    To view threads in different order go to User CP > edit options > scroll down to thread display options and edit the way you want threads to show.

    To see the latest threads you hit the New Posts link in the Navigation bar. From there you can use the little down arrow on the left of the thread title to take you to the first unread post or the little arrow next to the last posters name on the right to take you to the last post.

    Hope that helps - if not try asking again

    I think I know what you're asking...maybe. Try Quick Links in the bar at the top to the right. First option is Todays Posts. If thats not it let us know.

    Hmmm Morkdach..... I guess you just need to stop in every day. [​IMG]

    All kidding aside....I looked around and didn't find anything better then the today thing. Maybe Bmudd will chime in with a better option.

    Terry I may have just the ticket for you [​IMG]. Was poking around a little.

    Use this link to show all post made in the last 7 days, new or old.

    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/sea...etdaily&days=7

    If you can change the last "7" in the link to how ever many days you want to search back from now.

    I created a favorite in my browser with the link above. Click and I can see everything back a week now. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys :)

    I've been looking for a way to see a few days worth of threads myself, when I saw Terry's post it made me search a little. I found if you right click the new post icon you can see the link for the search. I quick poke around the net and I dug up the rest of the command to make a new search link for the extra days :). Where there's a will there's a way...lol.

    Oh yeah...it works at other sites too...just edit the site name in the link ;)
