"Show unread posts since last visit."
« on: June 04, 2012, 12:37:46 PM »
Is it just me or does the "Show unread posts since last visit." not work exactly as advertizes?
usualy is comes up with none or maybe one or two topice even though I can go in the sub forums and see dozens of new post and topics ?  :o
Hmmm... wonder what this button does....

It definitely works as expected here. Sometimes there's a local problem with cookie handling on your system that can cause problems like you describe. Do you have any cookie blocking or filtering setup? You can also try "all unread posts" from the "since last visit" screen, once there are no more posts.

Yea It probaly doesn't help that I am uning an old version of internet explorer on a heavily filtered work PC.

But still a button for say... all post from the last week or something like that would be nice.

You can just go to "View most recent posts on the forums" at the bottom, that basically does what you're asking for: http://www.planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=recent
