We’ve added a new setting for your layout: now you change the number of comments displayed per page in your IntenseDebate comment section. This has been a popular request, so we’re happy to deliver on it.
While the default setting is 25 comments per page, you can choose to display 10, 25, 50, or 100 comments per page. Please keep in mind that displaying more than 25 comments may result in an increase in load time since we will be loading more data. We are continuing our work to optimize this and improve load times for larger volumes of comments on a single page.
Currently comment threads collapse by default when there are 25 threads on the page. Changing to the number of comments per page will also change the thread collapse number. So setting 50 comments per page will set the thread collapse at 50 threads. Currently this setting cannot be disabled completely, but we hope this will help improve your commenting experience.
You can customize this setting in your Layout Settings page at http://intensedebate.com/edit-site-layout. Thanks again for your feedback!
