    How do I make it display more than 10 posts per page. It gets rather tedious trying constantly hit those little numbers. Normally I have forums I read display 100 posts at a time.

    Go into your profile (tab in top right corner), once in look on the right, next to your Public Messages, you will see Edit Account Details, click that and scroll down until you see Forum Preferences, at the bottom of that list you will see Posts per Page, you can change it there.

    You have to scroll quite far down, past Site Preferences, it's near the bottom of the list and right at the bottom of Forum Preferences. Are you on a PC or a mobile device at the moment? I know some things can't be viewed or changed on a mobile device.

    Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry, I just remembered you need a Platinum Poultry Membership to have that option. It's one of the benefits. My bad, sorry! There is more info on the paid memberships and benefits here.

    You're serious? That's a basic function. FWIW the new board is a flashing advertising billboard to begin with.
