I am having an issue in that I can click the box for only the author's posts, but the same number of pages are showing for the thread. When I click to the second or subsequent pages, there may not be any posts. Is there a way to change the layout so that the author's posts will run through the first 10 pages or so of a normal 50 page ride report?
The FireFox Add-on Autopager will download upcoming pages in the background. I bet this would solve your problem.
