User profile update

Postby jonp » Thu Jan 14, 2010 10:33 pm

You can now set the number of posts you see on a single web page when you're viewing a topic, and the number of topics you see on a page when you're viewing the topic list. The default values are the same as the previous board-wide settings - 1000 and 50.

To change your setting, click the "User Control Panel" link in the upper left, then click the "Profile" tab. You'll see the new settings at the bottom of the page.

Another possibly helpful option for those viewing on mobile devices or getting web page updates via telegraph is to view posts in reverse order. Go to User Control Panel, Board Preferences, Edit Display Options, and set the post order direction to Descending. Just remember when someone says "see post above", it'll be opposite.

Also copied and posted in Announcements as I hope EVERYONE will see it there.

Not everyone comes to the Q&A section.

Thanks for getting it changed!

I still have no clue what Plotky is talking about! I guess since there is little to no response,
no one else does either.
Fart, it's never not funny!

Grease,
By default you computer monitor will show 1000 individual responces in a particular thread topic (without you having to click a next page; link to view more). The default for each topic is set to 50.
Jon has given everyone a place where they can adjust that if they want to see less.

If you want to change your settings go to your User Control Panel section, click the Profile tab. The options are at the bottom of the page.

Posts per page:
Set to the number of posts you want on a single web page when viewing topics. Minimum 1. Max 1000.
Topics per page:
Number of topics displayed on one web page. Minimum 1. Max 50.

In the last paragraph Jon is talking about viewing options for people with mobile devices (e.g. PDA's, Blackberry's, possibly even some of the newer phones etc)
