Users to decide how many posts per page?

Hi folks!

Admins/mods can change how many threads and posts are shown on a page. Is there a way to allow an individual user or usergroup to "custom" change the settings for just their viewing?

Hmmm...I don't see the option for that? For instance, the default of the forum is set to show 20 posts per page. Some users would like less, some more.

Number of Posts to Show Per Page:
Use this option to set the number of posts to show in a thread before splitting the display into multiple pages.

This only option is only shown in the Admincp, but not in my Profile settings.

I couldnt tell you why it doesnt display those options on your site, unless i could look at your site & settings.

Hmmm....this is what mine looks like. It's missing that option?

Ok, I just found a setting in Admincp, LOL....

Just in case anyone else ever has the same problem:

Admincp > Thread Display Options (showthread) > User-Settable Maximum Displayed Posts

Thanks for all the help!

Yes that option is there in AdminCP, thought you search for profile so all members be able to select them selfs. For the history the missing option in profile is in the template "modifyoptions" I assume that code is missing from your template.
