I've noticed some people seem to be able to find and drag old posts back up to the top. What I wanna know is how they're finding these old posts. In my settings here I have it set to show all posts, yet when I go all the way back to the last page it doesn't bring up any real old stuff, just stuff from a few months ago (and like 1 or 2 posts marked 1969 for date...obviously a bug lol). Even using the search I can't seem to find the really old posts though I can see a bit more further back that way.

I just wanna know how to view old posts...I promise not to bring them back to the top! I'm mostly interested in reading my own, especially from 2005/2006 and the board doesn't show me them even when I go to my profile, on the last page of my posts the oldest is from 2007.

When you do a search via the forums, the maximum number of results it will display is 500, which means that the 500 matching will often be more recent posts when there are over a million posts on the site now.

The users who are finding old threads are likely searching for obscure keywords or phrases that don't match a lot of threads and so the old ones come up.

If you specifically want to look for old posts, go to the advanced search page:
http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/search.php

Under options, set these two options:
1) Find Posts from [A Year Ago] [and Older]
2) Sort Results by [Last Posting Date] [in Ascending Order]

That should get you some old results. When I used those options and searched for "anxiety", I got posts from 2004.
