    How do Is et the View Age for all of the forums? I want the default for all users to show the maximum posts per page (25) versus just the past 30 days...

    I tried setting this for a single forum, but change does not seem to take place... is there a master setting?

    Thanks -

    The view age and threads per page settings are two different settings that are not related.

    View age sets the date cutoff; threads older than this will not be shown in the thread list.

    Threads per page determines how the list of threads is divided into pages.

    Basically view age determines the total number of threads shown, and threads per page determines how many of the total are shown on each page; the user should click the next page link to view the next set of threads.

    You can change the view age for all forums to the maximum (so all threads from the very beginning of the board are available to be shown) by running this query:
    UPDATE forum SET daysprune=1000;

    You can change how many threads are shown on each page by going to Admin CP > vBulletin Options > Forum Display Options > Threads per Page.
