how do i modify the "Show n more links" message in JIRA?

The "Issue Links" section of a JIRA issue only shows us about five issues, then provides a "Show n more links" behavior to expand the rest. How do we modify the n value, so that by default more links are displayed?

You can edit the linkblock.vm and change the code around line 17 (this might vary according to your JIRA version.)

This file can be found inside a JIRA System Add-On called jira-view-issue-plugin-6.3.8.jar that is inside Atlassian Bundled Plugins.

Again, the exact location of this JAR will vary according to your version. On JIRA 6.3 and above, the file is located at JIRA-INSTALL/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/atlassian-bundled-plugins.

While on older versions, the file should be inside JIRA-INSTALL/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/

Ok, thanks! Too bad this isn't a configurable parameter (without diving inside jar files).
