Slow connection? This might help

While I have really welcomed the surge of photos being displayed in some of our photo threads here on the forum recently thanks to salons, London 2012, and some other challenge threads, it's been brought to my attention that for those who are on slow connections these picture heavy threads can be very slow to load.

I hope I have found a forum option that will help you if you are in this situation. Basically, you can change the number of posts displayed on a forum page. Our default is 15 posts, buts sometimes posts can contain 7, 8, 9 - even more, photos. You can choose to show as little as 5 posts at a time, and this will reduce the wait by, on average, two thirds.

You can find this option from the User Control Panel (User CP):

User CP > Your Control Panel > Settings and Options > Edit Options > Thread Display Options > Number of Posts to Show Per Page

Or you can just follow this link and scroll down to Thread Display Options > Number of Posts to Show Per Page

Hope some of you will find this tip helpful!

Thumbs up Re: Slow connection? This might help

The connection on this PC is just 576.0 Kbps and some of the picture heavy pages were quite slow to load fully, so that's a very useful tip, thanks.

I've reduced my options to 10 per page and know I can reduce it to 5 if I find it necessary.

Nice one, Ian.
