    Hi Randy and gang - apologies if I should post elsewhere but I don't see a FT equivalent forum for tech suggestions.

    The new MB is absolutely gorgeous and pretty intuitive to navigate. However, I see that pages appear limited to 20 posts per page. That, so far, is the single element I can find where FT beats MB.

    Is there a way we can display 40 or more posts per page? That would make MB not only gorgeous and intuitive, but efficient.

    Thanks for the kind comments. We will have a feedback/suggestions forum once live. I've seen many other comments about increasing this-- it is on our punch list. You can probably guess that 20 is the natural default of our new technology, not a number we purposely chose. Look for some report from me on this in the next few days. And before I leave this question ... welcome.

    Thanks, Randy.

    As the OP mentioned, 40 would be preferable.

    While 40 is better than 20, I'd like to propose 50 posts per page because this would make the arithmetic of converting between page number and post number somewhat easier.

    But... but... 50 is 25% better! :D

    And, indeed, it is great to see Randy, Mikel, Tim, et Al... here and making this come to fruition.

    all good and we have this topic on our watch list. as you might imagine, this option is not limited to our wish list, but rather the function of the underlying software itself. we have seen this requested by others to the developer and once it is available, or more appropriately, we hope it becomes available, we'll certainly institute for our members. This is a very, very young software platform and i'm sure we'll all enjoy growing up along with it.

    I was here on day 1 when we were at 20 posts per page - did not like it at all.

    I was here when we went to 40 posts per page - enjoyed that for a short while.

    Went on vacation for a week and am now shocked to find out that we are down to 25 posts per page?!
    How come? May we have the 40 back, please?

    P.S.
    50, 100 or 200 posts per page would be even better!

    Welcome back! Yes, there were lots of questions on the beta feedback forum right after it switched back. We learned - as Randy mentions above also - that, unfortunately, it is not yet possible to set this as as a user option (but they have asked the developer to add the functionality). So, for now, they are having to balance the number of pages with the various user preferences.

    ETA: See this post from Tim

    50 per page would be a big help.
