    Hi all,

    Is there a way to increase the number of posts and threads that we see on each page using the white theme?

    This is totally a first world problem, but it's annoying to have threads with only 10 posts per page.

    Thanks!

    That actually has a regulatory benefit for each users for all users. Xenforo had a few major discussions about it.

    A few of the users on a forum I own made a huge fuss about it. But then once everything was explained everybody calmed down.

    It keeps the page numbers same and makes sure the links shared are uniform across the entire site.

    Xenforo URLs have the page number in them. Like this - http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/post-name.807365/page-2#post-8253547

    Now if someone shares this link and you click on it and had your post-per page set to a higher number, you'd end up on a completely different page or land up on a 404, if the thread has only 2 pages.

    Additionally, suppose you're in a Sales Thread and the seller says - "Latest Discounts & offers posted on Page 8" - you'd again end up on a completely different page, without the offer or land up on a 404.

    Having a uniform posts-per-page settings prevents all that.

    That actually makes a lot of sense. Thanks for taking the time to respond!
