I was just looking up a member I met and although his profile lists that he has made 2 posts, none show when you click on 'show all posts' and the statistics read like this


  • Posts : 2 (0.00% of total)

  • Posts per day : 0.00

  • Latest post : Never




[size=30]He joined in 2016, so are posts deleted after a specific time.?[/size]

Don't know Paul, but I've been unable to find some of my own old posts so I think perhaps they do.

I think that counter also classes private messages as posts up!

I suppose it depends on number of posts. My own profile , when clicked on 'see all posts ' only shows 16 pages, 385 posts out of over 15000. 
Sometimes you know you've posted an answer to a question before and it would be useful to find it if it contains a link but even the search system doesn't bring them up on Google even using search words that you know for definite are in there.

Unless the hosts have some overflow system, and I doubt it cant see how or why posts would get deleted.   
RogerThat makes a valid point as I for one clear our PMs when they get to a page full which could explain reductions

I can get your old posts Margaret but like me, it limits it to 16 pages (385 posts out of over 5000) and they only go back to 2018

On another forum I used to frequent, posts in some sub forums were time bombed after a set period. These were the less motorhome oriented forums where the subject matter was unlikely to be worth keeping for future reference.

The forum owner had the option of deciding which forums would be so affected, and the time scale for each.

Some sections of the forum like the classifieds are set up to purge and automatically delete posts after 30 days, but the main forum sections can only be removed manually.

We have a new setting which we have to implement which should improve the search facility, but will mean the forum needs to be put into maintenance mode (inaccessible) while the update is installed.
