is there anyway to change how many posts are displayed per page? just so i (we!) dont have to wade through pages etc? i think most of the other forums i use give the facility to change in user cp - like up to 40 per page, but i couldnt find it??

Edit - poll added, i know it makes the page a bit slower but in these days of broadband etc its nice to have the option :)

With this board software, that's an administrative setting, and it's currently set to ten posts per page (the default on this and thousands of other boards).

Start a poll! If everyone wants that setting changed, I'll be more than happy to do it.

The software doesn't allow it to be a user setting? I have 1920x1200 resolution which can easily handle "infinite" posts per page (I have Google search results set to 100 and still find that lacking), but those with smaller resolutions or a slower connection might max out at 20 per page.

That is what I voted for, by the way.

EDIT: I also surf with a 13-year-old laptop with an 800x600 resolution; another reason why I didn't just vote for "as many as possible". :thumb:

It's not a user setting that I can find, but I could probably program it if I had some time.

Lemme try it on a test forum.

I also need to update us to the latest version.

I might have it done next week, but let's see what the poll says first.

It doesn't bother me. My current laptop has a 17 inch screen. Even if some forums have a lot of postings, i am quite comfortable with the scroll function. :)

I voted for 30 but can live with any of the options.

I voted for 20 but it's fine the way it is. It would be nice to have a choice but it's far from urgent...

I voted for 30 per page. Other forums that I visit have more, some are set to less. 30 or 40 seems to be pretty decent number without getting into too many on a page. :)

To be honest, I couldn't care less, but what else would you expect me to say :D :D

Well wasn't the 10 posts per page standard back in the day of dial-up internet? Now that we have broadband as a very common internet connection it wouldn't take anything at all to load another 10-20 posts per page.
