Ref- postings

Post by Beaky on Tue Mar 24, 2015 9:15 pm

Just a quick one guys.
How do I explain this, How do I modify my forum screen to show members most recent posts first.
(ie, rather than scrolling down 5 pages to get to the most recent post)
Hope the above makes sense. confused confused
Thanks

That only moves my page up or down, it doesn't  put the last post at the top of the page, where it  can be seen first and replied too

Ok
Just thought like other forums, it makes sense to have new posts at the top, this would allow older posts to gradually drop away, as the subject matter progresses or changes.

Never been on a forum where the last post is at the top of the page yet.

Every forum I have been on the last post is always at the bottom.

I will have another look into it

Not to worry guys  
I found how it was done. Your right Webbel, its not something done by other forums. You have to personalise your own computer.
I Found it under "Profile tab.
Then "preferences"
there was a drop down box called "Look and Layout" and in there it was.
A tick box named "New posts First". Clicked it and Bingo. Sorted.
Unfortunately couldn't find that option here.

I can make it so the last post is at the top of the page if that is what everyone wants but it will have to be put to a vote as some like it the way it is.

Im easy....whatever the majority want.
If the thread showed all the pages rather than having to keep going to next button for the next page.....that would be better.

Does that make sense

To most of you, if you look at the top right handside of the forum you should see Notifications, click on this and it will open up a window showing where people have posted click on them and it should take you to that post.

might make things easier for you.

would seem weird reading up from bottom of page (where you would have to scroll down to if there were 3 or 4 posts since last visit)
easier on phone for single posts certainly, but to read downward then scroll up a bit then read down again is odd
personally find it easier to go to first unread post then keep reading downwards

shame we cant get it to go to last page though
