    This is mainly directed at the site admin(s). It would be nice if the maximum posts per page option in the control panel was higher than 40 (to maybe 80 or 100) because it helps viewing long threads. Often, there are so many members posting at a specific time that replies get separated onto different pages, making it hard to follow the conversation without clicking back and forward. Thank you for the consideration!

    Sweet! Thanks Arn. This will be useful on my iPad where I don't have the autopager plugin.

    I've switched back to showing 40 posts per page instead of 100. Threads with 100 or more posts are taking too long to load completely, even with minimal photos or no photos in them.

    40 seems just right for load times and having plenty of posts to read before clicking to the next page.

    Thanks Arn. Very useful.

    I use Autopagerize and it works on most sites, but I've never been able to work out how to exclude a site.
