    In the Thread Display Options section, the picklist has two options - "Use Forum Default" and "Show Posts Per Page". The second option used to say "Show 20 Posts Per Page". Because of the missing number, everyone has the forum default now. 20 was working yesterday.

    We have to wait for Greg to comment - I would guess he changed it to ease the burden on the server. Lower number of the messages displayed means less database work.

    Thanks Borek. I guess I'll have to load more pages to see all the previous posts. :wink:

    Yes - but most people want to see just the new posts, so displaying more than just a few is a waste of resources.

    I know a forum where only four posts are displayed per page - that's a nonsense if you ask me. 10 to 15 is usually enough.
