I found out that we can go to "Board Settings" to CHOOSE the number of posts we want displayed. Mine WAS on "40" so I changed it to "20" to see how that works. I really want only "10" for Jose's work, but don't know if it is possible to change the number of posts-per-page for only one forumTopic....probably not.
This means settings are INDIVIDUAL, right? 2 years ago I set my posts to show up "the most recent at the top" DO YOU SEE THAT, TOO?
I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GO TO "My Controls" to set your best choices that work for you.
"Board Settings" is on the far left and down the list
