50 post forum limit?

Now that we are becoming more active , we ran into what appears to be a 50 post limit on forums (as they appear in Groups) The posts are accepted fine in bbPress back end. See a screen shot here: of the original page here:

Notice that it states: Viewing post 1 to 10 (50 total posts) when below it shows that there are 53 posts.

Change History (10)

Expanding on Mike's report of this problem. At first, we noticed that the excerpt of the latest topic post was stuck on the 30th posts. So, even though the topic was on post #35, the group summary page showed the excerpt for post #30. I tracked this down to the table bb_meta where the record meta_value = page_topics with a meta_value = 30. I changed this to 50 and the groups worked correctly again.

However, as expected, when the number of posts exceeded 50 in the topic, the excerpt became stuck on the 50th post and ONLY posts 1 - 50 will display. So, I increased the page_topics value to 100. When I did that, the excerpt completely failed to show.

OK, so then I created a new topic and moved posts 51 - 54 from the old topic to the new topic. The posts all show fine in the new topic and the 50 posts in the old topic show. PLUS, I was able to add a new post to the original topic, bringing the count to 51, and everything is working correctly! very confused! BUT, if I take the original #51 and add it back to the original topic, it breaks!

Maybe only thought know is maybe it's a size of the thread issue? Like xmlrpc is breaking because of the character count that gets returned? Many of the replies in the topic are lengthy. Really just guessing at this point!

There should be a limit of 10 posts per page on group forums - did you override this at all?

Marking this as invalid as it looks as though you've overridden the per-page limit. I'll take a look at this post 1.0. It's not critical because it's outside the scope of normal usage for now.

Replying to apeatling:

We did. So in order to get it back working we need to go back to a forced 10 (obviously this creates a massive number of pages on busy Topics

Re-opening this as it looks like it's to do with total character length and not the number of posts on a single page.
