Why don't you have pagination turned on for threads? I assume there is a feature for this, since I saw it in other BOINC forums. I think you could save some bandwidth / server load if I didn't have to load 200+ posts in certain threads.

(There might be a valid reason to avoid that, I'm just asking.)

You're asking the wrong person. You need... a mirror. :)

Actually, there isn't pagination, per se, but there is a user setting that performs a similar function.

On the left, click on "your account", then click on the link "Community Preferences". The third section down is titled "Message display". The last two items there control how many posts you see when you look at a long thread.

Don't worry about setting those numbers too low. There's always a link to display the entire thread if you need to do so.

(To answer your question directly, no, the BOINC forums don't have pagination. If we wanted it, I'd have to write it from scratch. I see no reason to do so.)

Ok, I did not expect that answer. :D The half English, half Hungarian settings page didn't help either.

It's kind of a solution, yet I saw pagination over at Enigma@Home (which seems to be dead AND down at the moment), and after a short search, here:
https://einsteinathome.org/hu/content/gamma-ray-pulsar-binary-search-1-gpus

I'm not sure that this forum is the default one though, it has a lot more features than the other message boards. That's why it's strange that there is no pagination.

PrimeGrid's web server code is based on a very old experimental version of BOINC. I'm sure it lacks a lot of newer BOINC features, but it also has features that we've written ourselves.
