Option Suggestion / Request on 01/16/2011 19:34:12 MST Print View

Like to make a request. More and more of us now have cable, DSL, or other high-speed connections. Is it possible to add a feature in our Profile to set the number of posts per page -- and/or a "show all" option? Right now, pages are added as posts accumulate -- and it can get tedious to continually clicking pages, given that nowadays, downloading all the posts in one fell swoop takes hardly any additional time.

Hi Ben

I had thought of that one too, but can you imagine downloading ALL of the Rog T Global Warming thread every time you want to see what page 91 has?

Cheers

Maybe the first time around, but that's likely about it. :)

But seriously, methinks BPL should either let users set the number of posts per view -- or maybe BPL can just increase the number of posts per page globally? How many of us are still on AOL modem dial up anyway?

"How many of us are still on AOL modem dial up anyway?"


--I am. Well not AOL, but dial-up. Thanks for asking. I hope you can tell I'm bitter.


That said, at work I'm blazing fast and I agree with your original request.

I'll be honest with you, we won't be making many costly upgrades to the current forum software but rather focusing our efforts on a complete rebuild (tentatively scheduled for 2011). When that upgrade happens all of everyone's wildest dreams will be fulfilled.
