Using "New Posts"

Quick question... been playing with "New Posts" and it seems to search out posts since the last login. Is this as intended?

If so, then is there a setting somewhere to fix a 'search by date' range that would list new posts over last x days?

Yes that is intended... I'm not aware of any available filtering setup for a date frame.... sorry.....

Also if you click on 'remember me' box, each time to log on you'll get a 'new posts' count on the box by your login.. that's a single click to the new posts since you were here last.

Depending on how often you log in "Quick Links" "Todays Posts" will give you all posts previous 24 hours.

I don't think even "NewPosts" goes back further than a day.
