    Does this forum software allow me to change the number of posts per page? I've looked everywhere I could think of and haven't found anything.

    Xenforo does not allow members to choose their own custom posts per page metric.

    The devs in general are relatively indignant about the feature request. There are modifications for it but that runs into the issue of discontinued support and making sure the mod is compatible with anything else being run on this Xenforo package. The more popular mod for this feature, for example, hasn't been updated in nearly 3 years.

    Thanks for the quick answer. It's a shame because long threads are so much easier to read at 50 or 100 ppp.

    Personally, I always used to use 40 to a page. Anything longer and post fatigue starts to set in.

    While I think its reasonable as is I also think its completely stupid to not be able to change it - and the reason given by the publishers boils down to "we coded it sloppily and cannot be bothered to change that so deal with it". Xenforo while having some decent features does suffer from both complete lack of anything resembling workable documentation and publishers willing to entertain the notion that their customers might be right once in a while, even if they do not agrree with design decisions by the publishers (or their unwillingness to correct sloppy coding).

    40 a page is a good length, especially given that even cellular data plans are becoming inexpensive.
