Changing viewing preferences

Post by Kurt Sellner » Jan 04, 2014 4:35 am

Is there a way to change the default number of posts per page from the default 15 to something a bit more "reasonable"? Something like 50 posts per page? There's a lot of good stuff here but I'm lazy and I don't like having to do so much clicking for the next page to read it all.

Thanks.

Under "User Control Panel" (upper right corner of screen) I see Board Preferences -> Edit Display Options, but I don't see any way to change the number of posts displayed.

I've tried to bump it up to 20 in the administrator controls. Tell me if you see a difference.

Why bother? 15 is fine.

It's all personal preference. You might like 15 posts per page but I'd prefer more. I thought this was adjustable somewhere based on the viewer's preference, I've seen it in other forums. Would it be possible to add this feature?
