    Can the threaded mode be set up to put the box that has the thread links BELOW the post opened instead of above it?

    Not without heavy modification (I know I made the Threaded Mod for vB)
    vBulletin doesn't really support threaded forum views in the way most people prefer it. All you really have is their version of threaded with the Box up top, or Hybrid which has the box and a flat style view of the whole post. No other options without a fair amount of modification.

    Bleh.

    Already a mark against it in my book... but then I prefer the ORIGINAL pre-Stratics version of the UHall anyway and always have.

    I guess I'll deal... at least Threaded exists even if it's in a non-efficient manner. Makes threads easier to read (at least until they get so unwieldy that they're a pain to read in ANY format).

    Do note that while that posts may default to newest-reply-first for some people, you can fix that in the User CP.

    as for threaded viw, you're on your own. Too many people RTLFC to go by threads, so I just view threads via pages of the replies.

    Question: On the old boards I was able to set the number of posts in a 'page' to 99. Is there a way to do that with this software?

    Thanks

    Currently, I think the highest you can set it for is 40, but yes, there is a way to alter then number of posts per page. I had mine at 99 on the old boards. I always thought it funny of people talking about the number of "pages" in a post, with them not realizing that it was variable. (I.E. "There's over 20 pages!!!!" as the latest post in a thread, while I'm reading that post on page 5, with my settings)
