    Forum Display

    A couple weeks ago, this forum started displaying only 10 posts per page. I don't recall what it use to be, but it was at least twice that amount. I've changed my user settings to display 40 per page but only 10 still show. How do I get this setting to take effect?

    Any moderators on this forum that can tell me how to get this to work?

      I also have something that bothers me. Unread posts are in bold. Previously, once I access the board and log out all posts are considered read. Now I have to go through each post
      How can that be changed?

      Thanks

        What you do is go to the bottom of the screen and click "Mark Channels Read" - that clears the messages.

          Hi, Anarchrist,

          Click on your username in the upper right of the screen and select User Settings. You can change it there under the second tab, which is labeled Account.

            I just checked and you can choose 5, 10, 20, 30 or "forum default" for posts per page.
            (Be sure to save your changes!!)
            Is the "forum default" currently 10, or something else? I don't recall ever changing anything on my own.

              Since a couple weeks ago, no matter what I select as display setting, only 10 posts display on the main forum page. I'm assuming 10 is the forum default. I had it set at 40, but for some reason it ignored the setting and started only displaying 10. I don't remember how many displayed prior to a couple weeks ago other than I know it was more than 10. I'm guessing 40 were displayed since that's what I had it set at.

                If you WANT 40, you can easily make that your personal selection. . .

                Go to user settings underneath your ID on top right of page
                Click on Account
                Scroll down to Conversation Detail Options, then Posts Per Page
                Use pull-down menu to make your choice (there are six available)
                Be sure you Save Changes using button in lower right of screen

                  40 is, and has been, my selection for years

                    I don't understand your posts.
                    Unless my comprehension is severely limited, it appears you are upset because you now are seeing only 10 posts per screen.
                    If you are currently seeing 40, no reason to keep posting.
                    If you are seeing only 10, that number CAN be changed to 40 using the method I described.
                    Over and out.

                      The user setting has been set at 40. It was always set at 40. Two weeks ago, even though the setting was 40, the main forum page started displaying only 10. The setting is at 40 but only 10 display. The setting stopped working approximately two weeks ago. If it worked, I'd have never posted the question.

                        Viewing this discussion, I noticed that my screen shows 10 and no more than 10. I went into my settings as described above, and see that I'm set to view 40. I changed the setting. Then I went back in and set it for 40. I see only 10.

                          Same here. I changed my setting from "default" to 20. I still see only 10. I suppose the only advantage to more displays is that you don't have to go to Page 2, 3, etc so often? Anyway, Anarchrist is correct. it doesn't work. We do need some way to communicate any desired changes or questions to the Administrator. For instance, it bugs me that the poster's location information no longer appears with the post, but on another page. It used to be in the upper right of the post.. It could be in the name info block on the left. ATXCommunity board forum uses the same format and they do this.

                            I am not having this problem. I have always had the setting at "default forum setting", and I see more than ten posts on one page. I don't think it would be a browser problem, but you never know (I mostly use Firefox).

                            How many posts do you see per page when you are not logged in?

                            Maybe try clearing all the cookies in your browser for any site matching "thetaxbook" and see if that helps.

                            Also, it was clear from Anarchrist's post #1 that a bug was being reported. So the repeated advice to change the setting is not helpful, as it has already been reported that for some, that does not help.

                            Update: here is a thread with 29 posts to use. I find that I am getting 15 per page with the default setting. Update #2: I changed my setting to 40 per page, and now I see all 29 posts of this thread on one page. So the problem is not universal.

                              Interesting. When I click on this link, I got 20 on one page, which is what I set mine on. Subsequent posts appear on Page 2. I thought OP was talking about the posts appearing when you first sign on the forum, which is only 10 per page. Not the ones you select for viewing. He did say "main page."
