Why does the "New Posts" button max out at 200 posts.

I use the New Posts button alot to see what threads have been posted too. However, lately it has been limited to only 200 posts (Or 8 pages). I find that I am starting to miss alot of posts since I am limited in this way. Is there a way to let all new posts be shown in the search results?

I think I managed to nuke the limit for new-post searches, but I can't check easily. Try it again.

"New posts" isn't really a search, since it scans for new threads without caring about individual posts. It shouldn't even be part of the search page. I gather you're using it as a merger of all the individual forum pages?

Yes, I use it to go through every thread that has new posts instead of having to manualy search each sub-forum. Makes looking for new, interesting topics easy.

Repost if you still run into some kind of limit. There shouldn't be one anymore.
