Answering for wiki purposes and giving my opinion. I don't mind that this thread is a dinosaur.

The reason the original poster of this thread wasn't finding the topics setting next to the posts setting is because they did not create the 2 custom profile fields and only created the one for the posts. The installation instructions clearly state that you have to create a field for both.

This mod only came with one hook file, and just those instructions, so the one responsible for getting the fields to display are the people installing the mod because it's display is independent on the custom user profile fields that we are instructed to create. There are 2 of them. They both would only be displayed in the ucp profile settings, the same place where you add your web site link, set your birthday and such.

My opinion is that this mod should have been added to the ucp - board preferences - edit display options, also known as ucp_prefs_view, instead of the user profile, because these settings are not for the display of the user's profile, they are for the display of the board topics and posts.

Edit: Looks like I wasn't the only one who feels this way about the location.

The mod otherwise works excellent. It's easy to use as well, fairly self explanatory, and does what it says if you install it properly, and apply the bug fix posted here.

Going to try this updated version of posts per page, which does have the settings in the correct location. Along with the other view preferences for the board.
