    OK!

    Some members have asked for a tutorial of how to show the newest post first in a thread.

    This is how you do that:


    First of all,scroll down to the bottom right corner of the forum board.
    There´s a box which looks like this:

    Click the word General to get this pic:

    Then click Settings.

    You´ll get a pic like this:

    Click General Settings and you´ll get this pic:

    Nope.

    You're still not getting it. The individual threads display just fine.

    When a FORUM is selected, say the "For Sale" forum, the threads are are in random order.
    Have to go down to the "Thread Display Options" bit and where it says "Sort Threads By:", have to change "Thread title" in the drop-box to "Last Post Time" and then hit the "Show Threads" button to refresh the screen and get the threads in chronological order.

    But, there is no way to make "Last Post Time" a default setting, it always reverts to "Thread title".

    Can you set the forums so that "Last Post Time" is the default?

    Will read up on this but meanwhile you can click the "Last post by" in each forum

    You can click all the headlines in the blue bar. Try it.

    I've tried the Last Post By in the blue bar, problem is that it re-racks starting with all the old posts, then if you hit it again you get all the new posts in order. It's easier to go to the bottom and do it once but if you go to another area like from For Sale to General you have to start over. As mentioned you just need to change the Default setting for it.
