    In the old forum you could display 100 posts per page. Is there a way to select that or at the very least have greater than 20 posts per page? I'm sure the setting is there, but I haven't run into it yet. Thanks!

    Until we have the option for each user to customize this, please vote in our poll: http://community.stratics.com/index.php?threads/poll-how-many-threads-per-page.262577/. If it leans significantly toward the higher ends, we can consider something higher than on the poll. XF does have a limit, though, to prevent performance issues.

    Thanks, Syrus. I voted for 50. The new forums are so much faster than the old ones... but I find the multiple pages to flip through while reading posts a little annoying. I hope the consensus is for a greater number of posts per page.

    Totally understand. Looking at the results right now, it's pretty clear we'll be raising it above 20.

    Thanks for voting!

    A thing I noticed that's been particular handy is when I click on a page, it auto scrolls down to the first 'new' post

    Well since we are talking about forum improvements, will you be able to add the forum drop-down menu at the bottom of each page like it was in the old forum? I've found it is hard to get back to UHall, a Shard, or Profession forum from places like looking at My Profile or My Conversations.

    Look for this symbol at the top and bottom of every page (in the breadcrumb).

    By the way, we've started a forum for Suggestions and Bug Reports here: http://community.stratics.com/index.php?forums/suggestions-and-bug-reports.692/. I've also been adding guides for things.

    Edit--it looks like this in UO Classic:
