“Enable Active Topics” – how many? How recent?

Post by andrew vanis »

ACP->manage forums->edit forum->general forum settings->enable active topics yes/no

When “enable active topics” = “yes” then recent topics show in that forum/category

How is it determined how many topics are shown and/or how recent do the topics need to be to be shown?

Can the number of posts shown be selected?

Can the recent posts period be selected as when viewing active topics in board index->view active posts –> “display posts from previous:___” ?

Thanks,
Andrew

The Active Topics at the bottom of a Category will show the most recent 25 topics, or whatever you have set for topics-per-page.

The View Active Topics button on the index shows the most recent 1000 topics in the time interval set at the bottom of the page.

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thanks!

To change the # of topics shown for “Enable Active Topics” (this will also select the # of topics under a category or forum) ….

ACP -> general -> board configuration ->post settings -> posting -> topics per page ____

this is correct for "view active topics"

For "enable active topics" the time frame selection drop down does not display anywhere on the screen.
