default number of results to display
> The default number of pages displayed is always 10. How can I increase this number?
I suspect you mean the dropdown which says 10, selecting a different number should modify the list length. If you mean to have a different default (other than 10) then you would need to look at  and modify the source  accordingly.
Thanks MWJames, and sorry about the long delay. Do I read your suggestion right that I should update the ResultFormats source code according to the documentation from the datatables people? This would mean having to do this change every time I update SRF (or learn how to make the update good enough it becomes part of SRF :-) ). Just to be sure I am not missing something... Thanks!
