is it possible to change the time limit of the recent topics tab

Or show a list of all unanswered questions?

I can only see all posts within the last two weeks, but I need to see all unanswered topics since "the beginning".
Important is, that I need to use the Q&A-Layout and cannot switch to any other layout.
Could you please guide me here?

Hi @xcalizorz,

You should customize the recent.php file in /wp-content/plugins/wpforo/wpf-themes/classic/ folder. Find this line, Change the 14 number as you like. There are two 14 numbers first is on line 15, the second is on line 57:

$end_date = time() - (14 * 24 * 60 * 60);

With the latest versions of wpForo you can use a simple filter hook to increase the time limit by days. Just put this code in your current active WordPress theme functions.php file and change the red marked 30 days to any time period you want:

add_filter('wpforo_recent_posts_limit', function($days){return 30;} );
