(unless i missed it but nothing under the buddypress admin)

  • Component set to Core
  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to Future Release

You can pass it a custom query_string, or filter the amount before the query takes place.

Punting to future release; would be nice to have some fine grained control over some of this stuff.

This would be a good addition as currently, a visitor can alter the display per page via the Query String, causing a very large query to take place and possibly impact the load time of the page or site. Possible also for it to overwhelm a MySQL resource.

  • Component changed from Core to Administration
  • Severity set to normal
  • Summary changed from Admin: General Settings: Option to change per_page settings to Admin: General Settings: Options to change per_page settings

I will see what can be done easily.

I don't think it makes a lot of sense to have this as an admin setting. It's too niche to require admin UI.

cklosows's concern is a valid one, though. Not sure how to fix that. Maybe we set a cap on the query max, but make that cap filterable by plugins.

To update five years after the last comment: this is now a feature we would support in BuddyPress now.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
