Number Of Replies Per Page

Postby Enjolvert » Sun Feb 17, 2013 7:52 pm

Out of interest, is it possible for the number of replies per page to be increased at all? While it's not a major problem, navigating a thread like the chat thread when it's quite busy isn't always easy since there's so many new pages. If others aren't bothered at all then that's fine, but I was wondering if it is a possibility at all?

I think it'd be a cool improvement :)

I will look into options for this, however...

...unless it's possible to introduce a code modification that allows individual users to set their preferences, I will not be changing this. The reason for this is that, if it's hard-coded to allow (say) 50 replies instead of the usual 20, posts with more substantial content like lots of images will make the pages much, much, much slower to load.

I appreciate that you all use the forum that much that 20 posts per page isn't enough but it's not something that's really feasible to increase on a wide-scale. However, if it's possible for individual users to set it bigger in their own preferences I'll definitely make that an option.

Isn't it 15 at the moment? Good to know that you'll take it into consideration anyway. I don't it'd need anything like 50 per page, even that extra 5 or 10 to 20 or 25 per page would probably make a major difference but I can see where the major drawbacks then come from too.

You're right, it is 15 -- I got briefly confused with another forum format I've been using elsewhere that is 20.

I'm sure it can be changed, but I'm not going to force change it for everyone unless there's an opt-out or set-it-for-yourself option.
