Forum: Profile limitations

Why is the "Topics per page"- and the "Posts per page"-limit set to 75? I would like to use higher numbers.

What would be the advantage of scrolling down 75 posts?

@Harry:

There should be a "profile.php" in the main folder of the forum. Open it with a text editor and look for the following data:

if ($form['disp_topics'] != '' && intval($form['disp_topics']) < 3) $form['disp_topics'] = 3;
if ($form['disp_topics'] != '' && intval($form['disp_topics']) > 75) $form['disp_topics'] = 75;
if ($form['disp_posts'] != '' && intval($form['disp_posts']) < 3) $form['disp_posts'] = 3;
if ($form['disp_posts'] != '' && intval($form['disp_posts']) > 75) $form['disp_posts'] = 75;

Change it to:

if ($form['disp_topics'] != '' && intval($form['disp_topics']) < 3) $form['disp_topics'] = 3;
//if ($form['disp_topics'] != '' && intval($form['disp_topics']) > 75) $form['disp_topics'] = 75;
if ($form['disp_posts'] != '' && intval($form['disp_posts']) < 3) $form['disp_posts'] = 3;
//if ($form['disp_posts'] != '' && intval($form['disp_posts']) > 75) $form['disp_posts'] = 75;

Save the file.

This will increase the limit to 999.

Re: Forum: Profile limitations

Being able to see all the answers to a topic at once, without having to stop at one point to load a new page, does seem handy to me.
Sometimes I am writing an answer to a topic and I need to re-read previous posts; when there are two pages or more, that means that I have to keep two or more tabs open and to keep switching between those to find the info I'm searching for. That probably doesn't sound like a big deal but convenience is about reducing the friction to a minimum; and who doesn't like convenience?

Re: Forum: Profile limitations

Yeah, but usually it's easy enough to keep up with the topic and not have to go back, it doesn't matter to me

Re: Forum: Profile limitations

Actually, I feel tat Chamyky has a point. I do read the old posts first before posting and being able to simply juz scroll down the whole page seems like a good idea to me... If tat is possible, can the moderators do it ? Afterall, I'm sure everyone here wans this forum to be improving and enjoyable  big_smile

Re: Forum: Profile limitations

In terms of server load I can't allow 999, but I will certainly up it to something a little more "reasonable."
