Active topics inquiry

Post by brothers » Sun Apr 16, 2017 7:15 am

Just out of curiosity, what constitutes an active topic as listed at the top of the Board index? How does the drop down box for the past x days factor into the equation? When I look back 1 year, there are active topics with as few as 0, first posted 9 months ago and no responses, listed as the only 0 response topic in the past year and still qualifying as an active topic. :D I clicked on the link to unanswered topics, and there are 112 topics that have never had any responses in the past 365 days. I decided it's an innocuous software hiccup.

Must have been gremlins, because it wasn't me!

Evidently the active topics function is only applicable to "Cooking and Recipes". :)

It occurs to me that if anyone wants to find out which topics are trending here in addition to the cooking topic, all they have to do is click on "view new posts". Not a biggie. :)
