FAQ: Can I stop a forum topic from scrolling forever?

  • By default, forum topics are set to scroll infinitely. All replies to a thread will appear on the same page. If there are a number of replies to a topic, or if the topic contains a lot of images, it can result in a lot of scrolling.

    To limit the number of topics that are listed in a category, or posts that appear on a single page in a topic, you can set Pagination preferences in your profile settings as follows:

    1. Click your profile icon in the upper right corner of the top banner. Then click on your user name to open your Profile page.
    2. Click the circle with three small dots to expand the Profile menu, and choose Settings.
    3. Scroll down to the Pagination area.
    4. Check the Paginate topics and posts instead of using infinite scroll option.
    5. The Topics per Page setting defines how many topics will be listed on each category page. The default is 20.
    6. The Posts per Page setting defines how many posts will be listed on each topic page. The default is 20.
    7. Click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the Settings page to save your changes.
