Opera history saving limitations... Can the library be allowed to keep expanding?

  • Using version 12.16. As I've mentioned here before, I use my Opera history as part of my library and have noticed that web-pages that I've visited are disappearing from my history from older visits on up. If with "Remember visited addresses from history and autocompletion" I choose 0 on addresses will that take the cap off? If with memory cache and disk cache I choose off will that take the cap off?

  • Set the values for History and related stuff to the maximum, it may help.

  • @leeocg: I already have. "Remember visited addresses from history and autocompletion" is set at 50000 addresses. Memory cache is set at automatic and disk cache cache is set at 400 MB.

  • Try increasing Max Global History Lines on opera:config

  • @leeocg: Thanks, it wouldn't let me set "Remember visited addresses from history and autocompletion" past 50000 addresses but it let me set the disk cache at 999 MB. I don't know if I can do anything with the memory cache or if/how it would help. Wish there weren't caps.

  • And what about "Max Global History Lines"? Iirc this is the setting that controls the size of your history list.

  • @leeocg: Thats what I went to, raised the number much higher, clicked save, then restarted Opera but it remained at 50000. I raised the set disk cache much higher than 999 MB too but that's where it capped.

  • Well then that must be it's limit. You could ask for the cap to be removed or at least raised in a future version by putting a request in the 'Suggestion box' part of the forum.

    Well, as said there must be a limit. Try also increase "Max Direct History Lines" if you haven't done it yet.

  • @leeocg: I went to "Max Direct History Lines" and it said 400, I was able to raise it to 999 but I would raise it higher if I could. Some confusion... what is "Max Direct History Lines" and how's it different from "Remember visited addresses from history and autocompletion?"

    @linuxmint7: Thanks, I'll post my wish there as I should've done much sooner.
