Tetra WebBBS Configuration
$qinfo_maxitems specifies the maximum number of items displayed with the quickinfo feature, if it is enabled.
New in 6.20
You may set this configuration variable to any positive integer number. Example:
$qinfo_maxitems = 5;
Quickinfo calls would only display a maximum of 5 items, even if the call itself asks for a higher number of items to be listed.
This feature is usefull esp. for those sites who allow quickinfo calls to distribute their forum content to other (third-party) websites. Those sites may include sort of "feeds" directly on their own pages. Even if you allow for such content distribution you may not want third-party sites to pull your entire forum by asking for 10.000 items to display. Here is where $qinfo_maxitems comes into play. It saves your resources by limiting the output to what you allow as a maximum.
