Since I seem to be using this thread for helpful hints about using the DB forum, here is another tidbit.
If you are reading someones posts, using the SHOW POSTS function. And they have a lot of posts, you may want to go to a certain page of the listing. So in the bottom right corner it say pages 1-xxx Then there is a black downward facing arrow. If you click on that arrow then you can enter a page number.
Took me about 2 years to figure that out.
Also the forum defaults can be changed to put more or less posts on a page.
Or you can change what is displayed to look at older posts.
There is a lot of information here but it takes some work to find it all.
