    Forever, barring any unexpected error on its server.

    Well, I'm pretty sure that the cut-off for display in the forum is 30 days old. The C++ boards earliest thread started on 3/22. Like SlyMaelstrom said though, most posts are searchable even if they aren't being displayed.

    That just leads me to page 15 again. I must not be 1337 enough for the older pages.

    Hmm, that page seems to redirect to page 15 for me as well. Try this link: C++ Programming - Page 1561

    [edit] Notice the "?daysprune=-1" -- I think that's what's letting you look at older pages. Anyway, it's easy to find yourself. Just go to "Display Options" at the bottom of the page and choose "From the Beginning". [/edit]

    None of this has anything to do with what I said. Yeah, if you can hack the cut-off day then you can see more results, but that would be no different from searching based on day and time. I just wanted to mention that there was a thirty day cut-off.

    As I was trying to say: the default cutoff is 30 days, but you can change it at the bottom of the page. I'm not sure if you've noticed this? . . . anyway, I've attached an image of it.

    Hmmm, I suppose I changed this to the "Beginning" a long time ago and just forgot that it was even an option.
