How to create pagination for topics?

I'm migrating my very old forum to the MiniBB platform
and got a question:

how can I split my topics list to pages as I can see, for example here -
See, at the top of page there are some pagination controls [1] [2] [3].... ect...

On my forum (the only one forum on site with $viewTopicsIfOnlyOneForum=1; option) if I go on the forum page, I see all my topics (several hundreds) together.
It tooks a long time to load.

So, I didn't find this pagination setting in a setup_options.php.

How to do that?

The pagination setting is under $viewmaxtopic and it doesn't depend if you have $viewTopicsIfOnlyOneForum set to 0 or 1. It works for both cases. If $viewTopicsIfOnlyOneForum is set to 1, it only means the script loads the intermediate forum page immediately instead of loading the first page - there is used the same pagination as on any intermediate forum.

Make sure to check this on the clean miniBB installation with no add-ons installed, may be some of the extra codes messes this up.

Paul, thanks, I found what it was.
It was my mistake, because I have populated your MySQL tables with my own script and forgot to update field in _forums table of topics count... ;-)
