    Question:

    When does a megathread Switches to the next site? After a certain amount of Posts?Or something else?

    I posted more then 15 sets here

    https://forum.phun.org/threads/taipans-real-private-wifes.87342/page-190

    with round about 1000 + pics, and it doesn't Switch to the next site yet, so the loading time is immense.

    Is it better to post a max. of lets say 50 pics per post?

    The only limit currently set for messages/posts is 50,000 characters. There is an option to limit the number of images per post, but it's currently unlimited.
    I don't know what the impact on existing material would be if I now imposed a limit such as you suggest.

    I suspect that the number of messages/posts per page of conversation/thread is buried in the templates. I can see several possibles but there are no clickable options or simple data entry points, instead all edits appear to be via CSS which is beyond me.
    In any case I think the loading time that you're now experiencing is caused by the new image proxy arrangements (phun server image caching) consequent on HTTPS working.

    Once again, my above mentioned megathread doesen't skip to another page.
    There are meanwhile 19 Posts with about 1500 pics on 1 site...

    As I said before, Tai, I don't know what the impact on existing posts of a system-imposed maximum of 50 images per post might be, nor indeed whether it would be fully reversible if we didn't like what we saw!
    But a simple solution might be to introduce an Amateur forum rule to henceforth limit the number of images per post to 50?
    You might even try that voluntarily in your thread? You could still post the same number of images overall, but spread them over more posts?
    The 20 posts per thread page would still apply, but the consequent reduced aggregation of images per page (maximum of 1000 per page) might make the pages more manageable by XenForo?

    Thanks for your answer.
    Ill try it as soon as it skips to the next page ;-)
    I just thought it is easy possible to Limit the posts for 1 site to e.g. 10 or 15, independently from the amount of pics.
    Thx again.

    After checking some other threads, it Looks like if the skip Comes after 20 Posts, no matter if you post 1 pic or 100 pics per post...

    No, the system settings apply forum-wide.

    That's what I said. The setting for posts per page in a thread is currently 20 - that applies to the whole of phun.org, and as you say, it makes no difference how many images are involved, if any at all! Posts comprising merely a word or two count the same as multiple image posts!

    I'm not sure what is going on with the forum today, but so often the pages aren't loading properly, I'm getting some database errors as well.

    I only tend to use Firefox so I don't know, but I have no reason to suspect it affects only Firefox, for instance. It's difficult to test because the problems aren't predictable/reproduceable and they tend to be transient too!

    I see that pixhost.org is replaced with pixhost.to! :applause::applause::dance:
    This resolves lots of broken post on the board.

    Thanks a lot!

    imgbox thumbnails are apparently fucked at the moment (Red X), but clicking them produces the full image, so it's probably a local (phun.org) image proxy issue.
    It's been flagged up to cayne.

    I think they're doing something on the server (related to the imagebox issue).

    I hope the performance is better now because the imgbox problem appears to have been solved?

    For me it certainly is. The issues only took a couple of minutes for me (during a DNS reset).
