    What's happened? I can only get onto the 1st page of the random forum... the buttons at the bottom that allow you to change page have disappeared, and at the bar atthe bottom it says there's only 12 topics? Is this a technical error or have I missed a mass clear out of posts? :-?

    Weird.... I wondered if i'd managed to enable some sort of "only show threads with new posts" option, but the stickys are still there and they haven't had new posts since last time I was on. The home page still says that there's a couple of thousand posts in each forum. :(

    FUNNY at the bottom of my page it says 'showing threads 1 to 13 of 13'

    Just a thought, but there is a setting in the cp to set how many or how recent forums you can see. Just check this isn't set to a small amount.

    user cp-->edit options-->thread display options

    Set the number of days. The forum default is last day or 2 days, I think.

    Genious! I've changed the setting now and everything's back to normal. *phew* It was on forum default, strange how it's never happened before though 'cos it's always been set to that. Thanks for your help! :D

    I picked up on this problem myself this morning but I've only just caught up with this thread. I, too, have always used the "Use Forum default" setting, but could suddenly only see the latest threads. Changed to "Show all threads" & everything's back to normal. Don't know why this glitch should have cropped up, though.

    Oh, that's obvious enough, Peter.

    The new sooper dooper server clearly retains threads based on the quality of the content...

    You honestly think there have been as many as 12 worthwhile threads in Random yet?
