Sort order has changed in Forums
Permalink  
 


As you've probably noticed, today March 20, 2007 the sort order of Forums and Topics has changed.

Now Forums that have been changed most recently will be at the top of the page.

Also, instead of having to scroll down to the bottom of a page to read the most recent post to a Topic, the newest post will be at the top of the page with the First post at the bottom.

I hope this makes the Forum a little more user friendly.

Thanks JT for a great suggestion.

I've done a little more fine tuning to try to make this Forum as user friendly as possibly.

I look forward to your comments and suggestions.

LMAO Kieth,

I'm running the same type of board for our Jeep club site.  I have played with it quite a bit which means I'm probably more lost than not

Send me a message if your'e having trouble figuring something out.  It will give me leverage to bug you when I can't figure something else on our site.

Robert

Hi, once into a topic I am not seeing the newest post first. Is there a prefference or something I need to set? Thanks

The sort order of topics is set to "last modified". The sort order of posts within a topic is set to "oldest first".

After looking around in the user profile section, I found that you can set the default to newest first for a topic. That is my preference. I don't like scrolling down to see responces on a topic I am following.

Is there a way to organize the postsby page if there are many posts on a single topic? For example, if there are more than ten posts on a topic, the next posts will be on page two. Afterpost number twenty, the next posts will be on page three. That way you could pick the page that you wanted to read instead of scrolling down through all of the posts. Other message boards are organized in this way. To me, it is sort of confusing tohave the newest postson a topic shown first. I guess my brain is just wired to read the other way around.
