get recent posts without being logged-in user

Post by poweruser »

years ago, on phpbb boards I was able to start unlimited searches for unlimited new/recent posts.
Just to see all new posts. ALL. Unlimited. amount.

Since a few years I (as normal user of a forum/board) I can only get a limited amount of recent posts.
If I login again or an error happens with the cookies, I get "0". (in words to read clearly: ZERO)
But there are. I am sure. (as I can see/get, if I search for "unread topics" [is this search also limited? (not tested yet)]

What sense does this function have? - serving newposts one time (you are logged) only.


"you have Zero Posts" - the next after logging in call.

Is there (legal) search parameter to read new posts after a fist and only time? (even if logged-out or - getting new posts more more than once, logged in)

"New Posts" are those made since your last login, so it is undefined if you are not logged in.
Those who are not logged in can use "Active Topics"
