I don't see 170 threads for Francis' diary, but it may be because the diary view isn't set to the beginning. At the bottom of the diary OR the forum, you'll see the Display Options
. It is automatically set to 2 months, allowing you to only view the first 2 months of the threads. If you set this to the beginning (at the bottom of the menu), then you'll be able to see all the threads from when the diary was first created (if those threads haven't been deleted yet).
I'm not sure, but I belive that this
is what your diary would look like if the Display Options are set to the beginning. This link may not work because I set it on my account, and my account only. Hope this solves your problem
