I imagine most regulars know about this, but I've seen numerous posts in threads from people saying 'it's on page 3' etc, when they could be viewing the whole thread on 1 page, so I thought this might help those who havn't discovered the options yet.
***To increase the number of posts per page from the default of 15:
-click on control panel
-click on 'edit options'
-scroll down to the 'Thread display options' section
-change the 'Number of Posts to Show Per Page' in the drop-down box
-save your changes and that's it done!
Makes the site a lot nicer to use IMHO
