XF 1.5 change format of XF post permalinks?

#1
Hi. Is there a way to set the format of the post permalinks? I'm talking about the URL you get when you right click on the little post number in a thread.

Seems they have the form

Code:
http://mysite.com/xf/index.php?threads/thread-title.7012/page-25#post-1127201
But I'd prefer they'd just be

Code:
http://mysite.com/xf/index.php?posts/1127201
We often have to merge threads on our site, and it looks like the former URL would break after a merge, whereas that latter wouldn't. Seems to me to be an important feature of a "permalink".

Also, is there a setting for number of posts displayed per page?

Thanks!

You can change the permalink style in the post template. Changing the link to the following should work:
Code:
{xen:link posts, $post}
(There are a couple places that link to the the current location there.)

Also, is there a setting for number of posts displayed per page?
Use the ACP search for "Messages Per Page".
