    My safari history only remembers the past 4 days, and I can't figure out how to make it remember further back. any ideas?



    And before you ask, no I'm not a 15 year old trying to cover up my tracks, I found some great sites 5 or 6 days ago and they're gone!

    Open the Safari preferences file (com.apple.Safari.plist) while Safari is closed using TextEdit. Search for WebKitHistoryAgeInDaysLimit, and change that section to look like this:


    Code:
     <key>WebKitHistoryAgeInDaysLimit</key>
     <string>XXX</string>
     <key>WebKitHistoryItemLimit</key>
     <string>9999</string>

    Where XXX is the number of days you want. Note that I haven't tried this since Panther when I was dropping the length back to zero so no guaranties. :eek:

    Another option is just to use onyx (there are tons of software that will do this too) and go into appearance >> safari >> number of pages in history.

    Where's the fun in that though. :D

    Yeah, Onyx is probably the safer option although they both do the same thing. :)
