    General Settings:

    Thread Display Options.
    Number of Posts to Show Per Page: Show (*Use Forum Default or 5, 10, 20, 30, 50) Posts Per Page.
    *Use this option to set the number of posts to show in a thread before splitting the display into multiple pages.

    Am I perhaps missing something?

    It was always my understanding... That the Maximum Number of Posts to Show Per Page was perhaps limited to 50.
    Please advise and keep up the great work. Thank-you!

    Best regards, -Tim.

    It's not just me that needs to use that setting (which I set years ago) but everyone, all the buyers too. We should make it a rule that they all must do that, so the For Sale ads will be found more easily. Yeah.

    Sorry for the confusion. It was a joke. The max is 50.

    Might I suggest...

    That's certainly a major candidate for change.

    Here in the third Millennium with gigabit internet, 50 posts is an unreasonably small limit IMO.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    It's a limitation in the software, and we avoid doing custom programming because of other ramifications. The only downside with the limit is a little more exercise for our collective index finger.

    Thanks, Ralph.

    I suspected there was some such limit.

    No, you don't want to do custom s/w changes. Bin there dun that too many times.
