I check the site everyday and old topics keep being displayed so today I checked and it was showing my last visit as 07/05/07, so what I saw today was the active posts for the last 10 days. Strange !

Tony.

I can only assume this was a freak of cookies !

The active topic works by reading the forum cookie from your machine to  find out when was your last visit. If the cookie information is corrupt, it will give a wrong date.

Click on the "Problems logging in ?" on the top menu to erase the cookie from your machine.

 If you log out or close your computer, when you log back in and click active topics it defaults back to a date a few days prior so you have to change the "view from" box to how far back you want to go and also change the "refresh from" box as well.
 I generally (once I have caught up) set to 12 hrs. and refresh every 2 mins.
 Hope this helps.
