We have added a Discussion Board list to our sharepoint online classic team site. enter image description here

Currently when we click on a discussion item, the main view (under All Replies >> Oldest) enter image description here

for each discussion will show maximum of 20 replies, and then it will show a paging link as follow:-

enter image description here

but most users miss this paging and think that the discussion only contain 20 replies. so can i expand the replies section to show more than 20? using the UI or using PnP script?

You can modify this limitation number with SharePoint Designer 2013:

  1. Open the Discussion Board list and then open SharePoint Designer via LIST > Edit List.

  2. Navigate to SharePoint Designer 2013 > Lists and Libraries > Discussion Board list > Views > Flat and open Flat.aspx.

  3. Search for <RowLimit Paged="TRUE">20</RowLimit>. “20” is the number of replies that can be displayed on one page. Change this number and then save.

Please note that too many replies on a single page may lead to performance issue.
