    On the other side, I was able to set my post-per-page to 40. I would like to do the same here, if not higher. Thanks.
     
  2. I was actually going to mention this. It's one of the first things I do when I sign-up on a new forum - surprised it isn't an option under preferences.

    This would be great, particularly for threads like the mint/coins thread :-p.

    I agree. I normally set mine high ... I prefer not to have to page constantly ... however, i haven't seen this setting anywhere yet.

    There would still be a variable amount of scrolling as it seems we can have infinitely long signatures.

    (though the'y be hard to "Like")

    So we also need an option to hide signatures? Nice sig by the way - I didn't realise that you could include images

    We already have an option to hide signatures:

    Check/uncheck box:
    Your Account / Settings / Preferences

    "Show people's signatures with their messages"

    For any Admin who reads this, I would like to echo that being able to set the number of posts per page would be a real plus!

    Skyvillager, thanks for the info on how to hide signatures. I've done it, and I think it gives the pages a cleaner look.
     
  9. I'll agree to this, too... please let us increase posts per page, if possible.

    Having failed to find a way to increase posts per page I'm pleased to learn it wasn't just me. Twenty posts isn't enough, continually moving to the next page is annoying. [​IMG]

    I am in the same boat also! Please if possible- increase to either 50 or 100 (user controlled).

    The faster moving topics (eg mistake fares) will generate too many pages for easy navigation at 20 posts per page.

    I'd also like the option of selecting higher numbers.

    Looks like we have a groundswell. Give us the power!

    Agree completely. Give us multiples of the current defaults.

    Thanks for the help in this thread Skyvillager.

    I'll make note of the request for variable thread lengths, thanks for the suggestion all. :)

    If I had the option, I would be happy to be able to hide specific individuals' signatures. Like an ignore feature just for certain components of a user. I'd be happy to have the same capability to ignore certain users' avatars which I find to be unsightly. (And if these don't become features, maybe I or someone will figure them out in Greasemonkey someday.)

    Another vote here for more posts per page - I erroneously posted in another area. And let's go one better than the other place - I would absolutely love to go to an option of 100 posts per page.

    Yet another vote...sometimes when certain threads are going fast...it is hard to keep up and remember where one is posting and to what :) At least an option to go to 40 or 50 would be nice.

    I LIKE, too. Fewer pages, more content per page is a lot more convenient and nowadays bandwidth is not anywhere near as dear as it used to be. 40 minimum, 50+ better.

    Add me to the list, as well.

    I also loved the ability to, within the URL itself, expand up to 200 posts. If I remember correctly, just had to add &pp=200 to the URL after the forum or search was open.

    Yes! Me too for all of the above:
    1. More posts per page
    2. Hide avatars on individual basis
    3. Hide sigs on an individual basis.
