Settings > Options > Forum Display Options (forumdisplay)
- Enable Forum Description
This option displays the forum description in the navbar. Helps visitors to know what the topic of a forum is, as well as possibly increasing search engine rankings.
- Show Users Browsing Forums
Enabling this option will show the current users browsing a particular forum on forumdisplay.php while adding one query. This can have an effect on performance. The Alphabetical option requires more resources than the random option.
- Maximum Displayed Threads Before Page Split
The number of threads to display on a forum page before splitting it over multiple pages.
Note: This number must be at least 1.
- Show Sticky Threads on All Pages
Select 'Yes' to show sticky threads on every forumdisplay.php page, regardless of page number. Set 'No' to only display them on page one.
- Highlight Threads in Which User Has Posted
When this feature is enabled, a logged in user will see an 'arrow' (or whatever graphic you choose) on the folder icons (hot folders, new folders, etc.) next to the threads that they have posted in.
- Hot Threads Enabled
Hot threads indicate threads with a lot of activity.
- Hot Threads Qualifying Views
If 'Hot Threads' are enabled, threads with the specified number of views or more will be shown as hot.

- Multi-Page Thread Links Enabled
Link to individual pages of a thread spanning multiple pages on the forum listing?
- Multi-Page Thread Maximum Links
When linking to multiple pages in the forum display, this allows you to set the cut-off point on which long posts stop adding more page numbers and are replaced by 'more...'
- Length of Thread Preview Text
This setting allows you to specify how many characters of the first post in a thread to display in the 'title' tag of the thread title on the forumdisplay page.
Set this value to 0 to disable thread previews.
- Group Announcements
Combine a forum's announcements into one listing, where the newest announcement is displayed?
Setting this to No lists all active announcements individually in their applicable forums
