Don't add paging - keep all threads on a single page

One of the things I like about WebmasterWorld is that each thread is on a single page, so I can use the browser's Find feature to find whatever I am looking for within that thread. It is very frustrating in other forums having to click Next Page, then do the Find again.

or, keep the paging at a high number, like the 50 that it is currently (oops)

Hmm. Mine is set to 15 or 20 or something.

Off to change that.

AJAX search/pager?

Take a peek at Yahoo's new email layout. Instead of crummy paging the emails load as you scroll down.

Classic example for me where new methods can be used to improve old features.

d'oh, it is an option. Mine is set at 50. I lurk for years, then I'm an idiot in my first post :P

The request still stands, just updated: please have an option for unlimited posts per page other than just 50.

PaulHudson's idea for the AJAX pagination is pretty cool and would certainly make it easier for most people, but it is not suitable for the particular case that I was thinking of - the user still wouldn't be able to do a Find if the bottom posts hadn't been retrieved yet.

Uhm... google update threads easily runs into 500 posts per thread, then mods split threads up.

I wouldn't personally want to wait for 500 posts to load, but then maybe I'm just not patient enough ;)

We need a link to jump to the bottom of a page. I hate scrolling down through 10 pages of posts to get to the latest post on a thread... especially on my phone... help a lazy brother out Brett! ;-)
