    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.)

    Use the ACP search for "Messages Per Page".
