Order that Posts Display in?
« on: November 02, 2014, 10:50:54 AM »
 Hey all, when clicking on a topic, the posts inside are running from newest at the top to oldest at the bottom.

is this a setting I can change?

Yes it is!

On the thin blue bar near the top of each page Click "Profile", "Account Settings", Click on "Modify Profile" (even though it is already highlited), select "Look and Layout" from the drop down list, deselect  the ninth radio button down the list called "Show most recent posts at the top" and then click the "Change Profile" button at the bottom right of the page.

The forum software had a major upgrade awhile back which I believe changed the default order the post sort in for many members.

This is where Terry is directing you. Your box is probably checked. Unchecked, as is shown  here, puts the newest posts at the bottom.

Maybe a simple answer to this, but when logged in post in a thread are shown newest to oldest, but when not logged in they are shown oldest to newest, is there a way to chose when logged in?

Under Profile -> Account Settings

Then under Modify Profile -> Look and Layout

There is a check box for "Show most recent posts at the top"

PS.  Thanks for asking this question.  I have been meaning to look and see if there was a setting to display your post after posting instead of going back to the index, but never got around to it.  There is such a setting, now here's my opportunity to try it out.  :)
