How to set number of comments shown was created by Steven Trooster
On my site I have set comments to articles. But it will show below an article only 3 comments, with a navigation beneath that. The problem is thet the navigation doesn't work. It has a link with parameter ?start=3 , which reloads the page without updating the comments list.

I've been searching through all the settings, but I can't find any option to increase the number of comments shown at once.
And I've been going though the php code, but couldn't find a solution that will fix the next page bug. I tried to change start in the url to limitstart, but then I get no comments at all in Safari and in other browsers nothing changes

This is the code I found in the model item.php
But I can't find where it's getting the $limit from.

Kunnena still seems to have the code bug

This is the code in plain text:

    public function getItemComments($itemID, $limitstart, $limit, $published = true)
    {
        $params = K2HelperUtilities::getParams('com_k2');
        $order = $params->get('commentsOrdering', 'DESC');
        $ordering = ($order == 'DESC') ? 'DESC' : 'ASC';
        $db = JFactory::getDbo();
        $query = "SELECT * FROM #__k2_comments WHERE itemID=".(int)$itemID;
        if ($published) {
            $query .= " AND published=1 ";
        }
        $query .= " ORDER BY commentDate {$ordering}";
        $db->setQuery($query, $limitstart, $limit);
        $rows = $db->loadObjectList();
        return $rows;
    }

I figured out that pagination not working had to do with caching. I use JCH to cache pages. Turning it off made the comments skip to the next page. But that's something you want to do, because then the whole idea of caching becomes useless, if you turn it off for most part of your site.

Still the question remains: how can I set the limit of comments shown? I would like to see more than 3 comments on one page.
