Travel Forums System Talk too limited - posts per page

something that has been really annoying me on TP is when a big thread has lots of comments every hmmm i dont know what the official number is, but lets say 6 comments goes to the next page!
this is really annoying going from page to page just to read comments!

id recommend have 15-20 comments per page...or what is the reason behind this? its very limited in that respect.

You can change the number of posts (and threads) displayed. If you look at the bottom of the thread there's a button called "Display" and to the left of it a dropdown menu with "Entries/Page" on it. That dropdown menu lets you choose between 10 and 40 entries per page displayed. So for a long thread you can have 40 entries displayed before you have to go to the next page.

Hope this helps.

Happens to me all the time, I had actually go and look for it, I just knew it was there. Sometimes we don't see what's right on front of us.

Phil - Do you know how to change the default?

I've always been able to choose 10/20/30/40 posts per thread, or 15/25/35 threads per page [as an aside, i'm curious as to this numerical variation], but i have to do it for each thread/forum individually. Any idea how I can change my default posts per thread to 20 or 40, instead of 10?

I'm not sure that you can reset a "default" to cover all forums. I haven't found it so I reset each forum individually - as you have stated.

Just helping to keep this thread up so we can find out the super secret answer...

Don't think there's a default either, but I never really use that function. Doesn't it 'stick' once you've set it? Or do you have to reset it each time you visit the site/forum/thread?

Well, they are always on 10, so guess that's the default!

Sadly (which is what makes it annoying) I have to reset each thread each time i visit it, so have given up using it.

I have different forums set to different numbers/page and they remain fixed until the cookies run out and I have to log back in.
