Hello,
in my vBulletin 4.2.x i see when im on page "New Posts", there are only low number of posts, example now is 7 posts.

I would like to see like 20 posts or such, please how to achieve this, i assume there must be some setting in vbulletin admincp, but where?

thank You

You see new (as in unread) posts. If there are no more unread posts, then you can't see any more.

Thanks, i was actually looking for the way to list around 20+ topics/posts lastly created
not unread ones, but simply last ones

But i think there is more than 7 posts that i did not read. So is there any time cutoff setting which make vbulleting show only limitted number of unread content?

When I click a tab "What's New" I get 20 posts per page. It is configurable through Control-Panel somewhere.
I think I googled "vBulletin number of new posts to show" and it said what parameter and where to change.

Settings > Options > Thread Display Options (showthread) > Maximum Displayed Posts Before Page Split

There are also other settings in that same page that you may want to change to achieve what you want.

That is not what he's asking at all.

That is, as I said, not what "What's new" does for logged in users. It lists the last topics for guests, though.

Yes, there is. By default, it is set to 10 days (if you're using standard settings, i.e. database marking, not cookies). I.e., if a post is 10 days old, then it won't be listed as new anymore. Else, there is no limit, and vB is of course able to list more than 7 new items ;)
Look at:
Settings > Options > General Settings > Thread/Forum Read Marking Type and Database Read Marking Limit

Ah I did not see the "What's New" part of his post. This is what happens when I try to post too early in the morning lol.
