A forum page and a thread page both have a selection widget at the bottom to restrict the number of posts returned. However the default appears to be unchangeable and is ALL - So the list gets longer and longer over time. Setting it to anything other than ALL works whilst you are on that page but it then "forgets" and goes back to ALL.

Is there anyway this can be made a user preference? This could also help with the load on the data base & server I suspect.

Forum pages were set with a default of fifty threads. I've now reduced that to 30, while the number of posts per page is set to 15.

I'll investigate whether or not I can tweak the other elements you mentioned, but I have another feature that's higher priority at the moment, which I hope to start rolling out over the weekend. Watch this space...

Nigel.
