Posts Displayed Per Page

I use VBForums which is set up similar to Yoganandaji.org. They also use vBulletin but I noticed they're using Version 3.8.1 and 3.8.0 is used here. Anyway a major difference between the two sites is that at VBForums you'll see 40 posts per page whereas here you only see 15 posts per page. It's not that big of a deal but in my opinion it would be better if you could see a greater number of posts per page because it allows for greater continuity in terms of seeing what has been posted. There aren't as many breaks so you can see more of what has been posted before or after some particular post when the number goes above 15 posts for a thread without having to click on a previous page or a following page.

Perhaps you could adjust that easily but if it's a lot of trouble to change then don't bother with it. Others could let us know if they would also prefer more posts per page. Maybe there are some who like fewer posts per page so they like it just the way it is. If it stays the way it is that's fine with me.

I was looking around like for instance in options and I didn't see a way to adjust that personally per user.

I definitely like to have max # of posts on the same page if it's allowed by the program

I third the motion of upping the number of posts per page. But possibly it will require a software update.

Try it now - I have updated it to 40.

Amazing how time flies! When this board was created, lots of people still used dial-up (remember that?) and had smaller screens. Fifteen posts per page made sense, but- welcome to the year 2011! I think it is alright to increase the number.

Liberty, it might be - I will look into it! I am not as excited about that change, though. I always find it irritating to have to go back pages to the beginning of a thread just to see what the topic is about, then read 'upwards' to catch up. Maybe we can vote on it? See what most people prefer? I'll see if I can set a poll up next time I get a minute. I understand what you are saying about scrolling on a mobile. That would be painful.



P.S. Did you know you can instantly go to the 'end' of a discussion - or the last post made - by clicking or touching the little blue arrow? That might work a little better for you in the meantime...

In addition to Shannon's solution, in the "user cp" module, under "edit options" there is an option for controlling how the thread displays. You can show newest first if you want. Its about 4/5 of the way down the page.
