Solved Setting Topic Number/Page Limit

Post by Parsonia June 5th 2009, 1:35 pm

Hi guys, i hope someone can help me.

I have one forum, and have set my topics per page number to 40 which is fine, but I can't see anywhere where I can set the actual number of pages.

Currently I have 6 pages with 40 topics in each, and I don't want the number of topics to continue on and into an 7th page, so at the moment I am having to (slowly) delete topics that are 'overflowing' into the 7th page.

Can anyone tell me how how to set a topic/page limit please?

Many thanks,

Rachel

There is a # of posts limit of 990, so if you set 6 pages it is 990/6 topics per page.

Hi Sanket, thanks for replying

Just to clarify though - you say there is a number of posts limit to 990 - didn't you meant topics?

I don't understand what you mean, so was hoping you coudl clarify...All I want to do is set my number of topics per page to 40 which I have already done, but for the number of pages not to exceed 7 pages.

How do I do this?

Ie: the number of topic pages not to exceed 7 - A maximum of 7 pages with 40 topics in each page. Anything more than that, and they databse will delete them...

Oh you were talking about topics, i misunderstood you. My bad.


If you have set it to t 40, its well n good. however if you want that it should not exceed 7 pages then its like you want that forum to be closed. Its not possible to limit the # of pages.

May I remind you that double/triple posting isn't tolerated unless separated by 24 hours (Use the edit button) Wink

right, so what's the limit on topics?

Does this mean that the number of pages will go on and on and on and on and on? There must be a way to set topic limits of some kind otherwise the forum page count will go through the roof

Master Marc, thank you for repling also, but if you read my above post, I can, and have set my posts per page to 40 which is fine.

What I want to do is limit the number of pages to 8 as the users of my forum post during work hours only from Monday to Friday, so never bother scrolling through more than the first few pages as anything past pages 5 and onwards is old news so to speak. Do you see what I mean?

I want to limit the number of pages, to save me deleting old topics and posts.

There must be a way to do this?
