I didn't find anything under ACP>Home>Options.
Can the time limit for what's considered "recent" be modified?
What about time limit settings for new threads / recent activity?

Time limit for unread (new) threads:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Threads, Discussions and Conversations -> Read Marking Data Lifetime (Days)

Overall limit for all "search" listings including what's new:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Search Options -> Maximum Number of Search Results

The recent activity page goes out to 7 days. That is hard-coded in this function:

XenForo_Model_NewsFeed::deleteOldNewsFeedItems

That's good information.
Read Marking Data Lifetime (Days) = 30
Maximum Number of Search Results = 200
From Jake, recent activity (days) = 7

Is there anything that ties What's New to the last time a user logged on?
User logs on at 8am, then logs on at 8pm. Does 8pm What's New only show new posts since 8am?
I just want to verify how What's New functions since 7 days for Recent Activity seems like a long time.

The read markers are persistent within the limit you set (30 days from your previous post). They are not dependent on login time. If a thread has a post from 12 days ago that I haven't read then it will show in what's new for me.
