    I should point out that once a thread scrolls off the end of the initial page (after being bumped by newer threads), it does not disappear.

    Instead, it can be found in one of two ways.

    Method Number One: In the bottom right hand corner of the web page, after the last thread is listed, there are (for the larger forums) a series of page numbers. Clicking on any one of those numbers reveals a page of older threads (all in reverse chronological order).

    Method Number Two: Immediately below the page numbers in the bottom right hand corner or in the row of buttons in top right corner is either a search box (bottom right) or search button (top right). Entering text in the search box does a quick search, while clicking on the search button makes a more advanced search available.
