Finding old posts - here's how

    I've noticed a number of people saying they can't find posts and thought I would offer a couple of solutions which readers can already use (there are no doubt others). Hopefully the HC software will continue to be improved so it becomes easier to search and retrieve.

    (1) http://www.hotcopper.com.au/forum_thread.asp?msgid=1#1 typed into the address space of your browser will bring up Pat's welcoming post of 22/04/02 16:12, which begins "I would like to welcome you all to the new HotCopper message forum."

    (2) When using the "latest posts" function it is only apparently possible to go back 10 pages. However, if one puts some posters on "ignore", posts going back further can be seen within those ten listed pages. Please note that HC does not appear to be logging people off when they are disconnected from their ISP etc. Thus, if a reader returns to the forum without specifically logging in to the site again, the ignore feature will appear to not be working. For instance, try leaving the site without specifically logging off from HC and then type in http://www.hotcopper.com.au/forum_latest.asp .
