Server not sending messages in log?

Hey guys, I’m attempting to use the openfire server as more of a real time forum rather than a chat room. Everything is working great so far, but the only problem is that my older messages are not being sent! I know they’re in the logs, because when I open MySQL I can see them there, but for some reason the server just doesn’t send em. Any ideas why? Or how to fix this (programming a plugin, etc)?
