    I apologize if this has been covered, tried searching but nothing.

    why are there like i think 40-45 posts per page on topics? it makes it a real pain in the ... to scroll down to find the posts that happened from the last time you checked out a thread. instead of having like 10 on a page or something and knowing you left off on page 3 or something so you dont need to scroll through the first 30 posts before getting to what you last saw...

    hope that made sense :D

    Don't change it! I really prefer scrolling to trying to hit the proper page number or the '>' arrow!

    I find that scrolling on the Droid works really well for me.

    but when youre subscribed to a thread, and someone post something and is post #30 you go read it...come back an hour or 2 later and its at 36 posts you have to go all the way back down rather than just hitting last page

    Short answer - more people want 50 per page vs 25.

    Hit the blue down arrow before the thread title, that takes you to the first unread post.

    You can change it if you want. On the same line as the "Log Out" text, at the far left there's a part that reads "User CP" (if you can't find it, just hit Ctrl+F and type User CP it should find it for you). Click that then under the "Settings & Options" go to the "Edit Options". Scroll down and you will see "Number of Posts to Show Per Page". Change that.

    I prefer 20.

    ahh, thank you
    yeah it gets so insane when you have 50 posts, everyone posting images, everyone else quoting that post with all the images...having to scroll through them all over and over again just to see their one line of text that says something ridiculous like "hey whats that clock widget" that has already been answered 5 times in the same thread...
