    Thread Order Change

    It appears that the message order in the forums in thread view has changed. It now looks like the messages in the thread are in the order of most recent first. Is this the way it is supposed to be? I find this very confusing when trying to read the messages in order. I can no longer just go from top to bottom, I have to bounce all around to read in order.

    Re: Thread Order Change

    In your <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/editdisplay.pl?Cat=>Display Preferences</A>, you will find a option for the default sort order. This order affects both the posts, and the replies under each post.

    You can sort these by ascending / descending for subject, poster, and date.

    Hopefully, there is a suitable option there for you. As this is new software, we'll all have to play around to find the "perfect" setup.

    Re: Thread Order Change

    That option does seem to affect the order of subjects in the forum (which I want to be in decending date order), but for me it does not seem to affect the order of replies in a thread (which I want to be in ascending date order). Since I want these two to be different, that would seem to not help even if it did work for both.

    Re: Thread Order Change

    You're right, Legare. I changed the replies sort-order back to how it comes out-of-the-box because the new jump to exact message feature turns out to rely on it's being that way. I agree with you - it sucks!! I think I'm going to change it back...

    Re: Thread Order Change

    Did you not understand what I said? The order of messages in a thread in thread view has gone back to most recent first. I am back to having to jump all around instead of working from top to bottom to read the messages in order.

    Re: Thread Order Change

    <img src=/S/grovel.gif border=0 alt=grovel width=31 height=23> My apologies. I hadn't deliberately changed it but on closer investigation it turns out I'd copied it from an unadjusted backup.
    It's right again now and I've put myself a big warning note in the script so it shouldn't happen again. Thanks for your persistance.

    Sorry I blew it. I'd been working all day on a hack that ended up in the <img src=/S/toilet.gif border=0 alt=toilet width=24 height=26>
