Thread Display Options (showthread)
vBulletin Options > vBulletin Options > Thread Display Options (showthread)
- Show Users Browsing Threads
Enabling this option will show the current users browsing a particular thread on showthread.php while adding one query. This can have an effect on performance. The Alphabetical option requires more resources than the Random option.
- Maximum Displayed Posts Before Page Split
The number of posts to display on a thread page in linear or hybrid mode before splitting it over multiple pages.
Note: This number must be at least 1.
- User-Settable Maximum Displayed Posts
If you would like to allow the user to set their own maximum posts per thread then give the options separated by commas. Leave this option blank to force users to use the 'Maximum Displayed Posts Before Page Split' setting above this option.
Example setting: 10,20,30,40
- Show Default Post Icon
If you would like to use a default icon for messages without an icon, enter the path to the image here.
- Number of Characters Before Wrapping Text
If you want posts to automatically insert spaces into long words to make them wrap after a certain number of characters, set the number of characters in the box above.
If you do not want this to occur, enter 0.
This should be set to 0 with some language sets
- Check Thread Rating
If enabled, this option will check if a user voted on a thread and show their vote if they have. Otherwise, they will see the voting options even if they are not able to vote again. This can have an effect on performance.
- Check Thread Subscription
If enabled, this option will notify the user that they are subscribed to a thread by displaying a small icon when viewing forumdisplay and search results. It will also change the "Subscribe to this thread" text on showthread to "Unsubscribe from this thread". This can have an effect on performance.
- Show Similar Threads?
Set this value to 'Yes' if you would like to see 'similar threads' displayed on the show thread page.
This setting will only work if you have 'Automatic Similar Thread Search' enabled in the message searching options section.
- Post Elements
There is optional user information that you may display on each post. These options require a bit of processing time to calculate. This information includes Age, Reputation Power and Infractions
- Enable Social Bookmarking
Use this switch to quickly disable the display of the bookmarks section of the page, on which links to social bookmarking sites (set up through the Social Bookmarking Manager) are shown.
Social bookmarking links will only be displayed in guest-viewable threads.
