    Dear Websleuths Members and Visitors.

    If you have never set your "Posts Per Page" to a specific number you will find that setting now at 15 posts per page.


    There are two very good reasons to leave your Post Per Page count at 15:

    1- It will decrease the time needed to load your pages significantly

    2 - It will decrease the number of ads you see per page

    This move will place the post counts to the way originally designed by VBulletin, while still allowing our loyal members to customize their own viewing experience.

    If you are a member and you want to change your Post Per Page number rather than keep it on 15 you can click on the "settings" in the upper right hand corner of your page, scroll down and click on "general settings", scroll down and change the "Number of Posts to Show Per Page" or leave it at the forum default which is now 15.

    Members who have already customized their Post Per Page number should not be affected.

    Visitors you will now see your Posts Per Page at 15.

    Only members are allowed to change their Post Per Page count.

    Thank you,

    Tricia

    Will there be a hack to change from 20 posts per page? I normally have 100. I'm following cases that have a huge history such as Buckskin Girl and Lyle. 100 posts per page allows me to easily search for key words using my browser find. Please tell me we're not going to be stuck at 20 per page.

    I can’t find the settings or general setting button you are talking about. Please help. 15 posts per page means threads take forever to load and read, especially at work when I’m on lunch and we have no WiFi. Thanks!

    Hello, Thanks Tricia for the new format. It works great for me, except one small, probably incredibly stupid thing. I also can't find the "settings" button. It is not in the upper right hand corner, and I have looked everywhere I can think of. Could someone please help. Thanks very much to everyone, and a special thanks to who ever will answer my question. Katt

    There is no option on a mobile device that I see like I did on my computer. All I have is alerts, inbox and my name on the top right . At least the old software let us switch to mobile or full site .

    Edit - clicking my name gives me prefs but not seeing settings for posts per page on any device I have and the alerts pop up is annoying when editing a post. I really dislike the orange more every time I come. Sorry to sound ungrateful but I dislike it on all my devices. Especially no quote in the email notification

    I am still hoping someone can answer my question about the number of posts you can view per page. I forgot to mention, I am on a PC, not a mobile device. Thanks again to anyone who knows the answer. Katt

    If I understand correctly there is no longer a way to change posts per page. Tricia's post above is about the old software...note the date is 2015.

    There is an active thread focusing on the new software if you have questions. HTH's

    ETA.. I'm trying to delete this post as I see I need to go elsewhere. But I can't figure out how to delete a post with this new software. Oh well.


    On the upper right hand header I do not see the word settings. I only see my name, inbox, alerts.

    On the left side I see home, forums, resources, members.

    This is the same on both my phone and my computer.

    Can anybody guide me through how to get there to find settings?

    Hello, again. Me, as well. I have looked everywhere. Is there in fact a place where you can change the posts per page, or it no longer exists. I am very confused. I will settle for 15, if I must, but I much prefer more. It is much easier for me to navigate and do other things if I have it set higher.

    Thanks to one and all who are also having issues with this, or found the answer. I thought I was crazy, not being able to find the settings button!!
