    Is there somewhere we can select how many posts show up on each page? In my travels around BYC, I remember reading someone talking about this, but now I can't find where I read that. I can't think of the right keywords to bring it up in any searches, and I can't find any setting for it in my profile area, so I guess it's not an option we have. But I wanted to ask, in case I'm just missing something.

    The folks who were talking about it mentioned something about not wanting to have to keep loading new pages after only reading a few posts.

    They also mentioned that if you are viewing BYC on a mobile device, the number of posts per page on there is different than when viewing on a desktop. That probably has to do with the mobile version of BYC, and not any settings.

    Go to the top right hand corner of this page and click on "My Profile" Then in the upper middle of your page you will see a button that says "edit account details". Click on that. Scroll down to the second section labeled "Forums". 2/3rds through that section you will see a "posts per page" with a drop down window. You can select the posts per page and click on save at the bottom of this entire page to save your preferences.

    This is all I can find when I go to that page (well, in the Forum section):


    Preferred editorRich Text EditorBB Code Editor
    Default to the Full-Page Editor (?)
    Remove Nested Quotes in Replies
    Hide Social Sharing Tools (?)
    Compact Thread List Page (?)
    View Forums Full Width (?)
    Constrain Threads to Constant Width (?)
    Show absolute timestamps in post headers (?)
    Hide User awards (?)
    Hide User Avatars (?)
    Hide User Signatures (?)
    Hide My Stuff in Signatures (?)

    Am I missing something other people have in their edit account page?

    Oh, I wondered if it might be something like that.
