Hi Folks,

Is there a way to increase the amount of posts displayed on one page before me having to click on a link to display the next page?

It has become a bit of a minor nuisance for me commuting to work by train reading a thread on my mobile. I always lose my internet connection depending where I am on the line. So while I’m merrily reading the first 10 posts with ease, I’ll then click for page ‘2’ – but alas! My internet is down so I’ve to wait until I reconnect. If I could load more than 10 posts at a time, this would be less of an ordeal!

P.S. Nice to see .org breathing some life. I’m still looking for a safe outlet away from the impending Woo Apocalypse to hit the .com site!

I've changed total posts per page from 10 to 50. Hope that helps. Feedback on this is welcomed from other users, too.

Wow, thanks inow. That was quick.

Did you change the setting just for my account, or did you have to make a global change that affects every member? I don’t want others to have to put up with my personal preferences!

AFAIK, this change is only possible globally at the site level.

Ah, ok. Well I like the 50 post change you made, but if other members don’t like it then please feel free to revert back.

Ta.

I like the idea. Good move Inow. It makes it easier now to find an idea within a thread when using a "find" function. Thanks to you all.

The only catch is with picture threads, where a browser loads *all* images simultaneously. I seldom visit such threads, personally.
