It's sometimes useful to be able to view all posts on one page, instead of having to search through pages and pages of posts. This hack adds an AOOP link next to "Last Page" on forumdisplay. Keep in mind that this can consume a lot of bandwidth. It's wise only to allow the administration team to view this. Slow servers might even exceed the execution time for large threads (100-150+ replies).

This hack has not been thoroughly tested. It would be nice if someone would check if this works. Thanks.

This would kill a server if someone tried to view my 11700 replies thread on one page :eek:

I am running 2.2.5 and it works here. The only thing is that I didn't replace the code in showthread.php because I couldn't find the code you specified for it in 2.2.5. I did change it in the forumdisplay.php and the template and it works great here. What is the code in the showthread.php for?

You might have wanted to put this in the Beta forum.

the code in showthread was a limitation to the number of posts per page. I think that was added in a later version of vbulletin.
