    Where are earlier questions?

    Rrrrrosco

      I can only see 10 hours of questions - how do I get to yesterdays (or earlier) Q&A?

          You can choose View All Unanswered Questions from the bottom of the InDesign forum page, or search for a topic in the search list at the top.

            Hello, Barb.

            Just to share my experience with the forum software on finding or accessing older threads:

             

            Recently I was working my way through Adobe Bridge scripting. There is a dedicated forum for this. So I thought, let's browse through all of the threads there for finding interesting topics. At that time I couldn't even formulate distinct questions or search for keywords, because I was relative new to that area of expertice.

             

            At first I had a very hard time to access the first threads in that forum, because you cannot type in a number of a particular page to go there directly, you only have the two advance buttons, that get you 1 page forward or backward. Then I realized that you can sort the threads by time. From the oldest one to the latest one. This eased my search a bit. But still it was very hard to get to some threads in the middle of the stack.

             

            A workaround is to anaylze the URL of a specific page in a forum.

            At the end of such an URL is a number. You can change that number and directly access a page with listed forum threads after doing some simple math.

             

            Example:
            I have listed 20 threads on a browser page, e.g. page 4 will show the following number at the end of the URL in your browser:

             

            [thread]&start=60

             

            Why 60 and not 80? Sure enough, 20 x 4 will be 80 and not 60.
            Because number 60 indicates 60 threads before the start of page 4 in the browser.

             

            Hope, that helps.
            Uwe
