    Suggestion regarding page length

    Hi, I wanted to suggest 'lengthening' the pages within threads.

    I'm not sure if the software uses a set value for # of posts per page (10?) or if it uses something more arcane. I think lengthening each page by perhaps doubling the number of posts (to 20?) would make the forums less cumbersome on loong threads, would require less clicking to maneuver within threads, etc.

    A 'longer' value is used over at with the same forum software, so it should be do-able....and it works fine over there. In fact, that's where I first noticed the convenience of less clicking within long threads.

    Pellaz, in your User CP under 'Edit Options' is the 'Thread Display Options' settings. There you can manually set how many posts per page you personally want to see - Forum Default, 10, 20, 30, or 40.

    I should be able to change the Forum Default to 20 in the mean time though.
