Beneath each day's 30 posts there are older posts that can be read, going back to July, 2012. How can I access the messages posted before last July? I find the posts and discussions to be very interesting, and I would like to read old posts previous to July.

GardenWeb does not archive. Once they drop off - they are pretty much gone.

Sometimes you can find something via google, but sometimes that also leads to a blank page.

I think if someone has "clipped" a post - it is then archived.

RE: Older Messages

Maybe if you ask on here for the subject that you're seeking, someone may have saved it, whether archived or not.

I often copy stuff and take it home ... but it would be a bit of a job to retype it, though in some situations folk might be able to scan it.

Just post what you are looking for an someone might have it or the orignal poster can help. I have a bunch of old stuff at the KTGP, it could be saved there too.

I thought they posted a while back that the older posts *are* still available now but you essentially need to search for it and find it, then you can access it and post to it. But maybe it was a just a dream.

Try searching and asking. You might get some help. And might get different opinions than originally posted too. Sometimes there's updated info that can be of use to you.

I think the OP is asking how to retrieve older messages, because of the interesting topics and general good time we have here.

He won't know what to search for, in that case. Since there is no archive held anywhere, he won't be able to read past pages.

Hi shefsf,

I have two KT things bookmarked. The first in the link below has 14 links to various older funny threads.

The second on I have is also on the Funny thread keeper. It is called dogs in elk & is one of the most hilarious things I've ever read. It's old, from Sept '99, & was posted by a woman whose husband brought back an elk carcass from hunting. It's at: Dogs in elk, http://www.webtree.ca/tree/keeper/dogs_in_elk.htm

Here is a link that might be useful: Funny KT thread keeper

There is also the Wayback Machine or just type Gardenweb Forums Kitchen Table into Google and that will also bring up some older posts.

That Wayback Machine is amazing! I'm adding it to the KTGP for save keeping. Thanks Cherryfizz
