  • Thread display order

    I've just imported from PHPBB 3.02 to vBulletin and the way the threads are being displayed in the various forums is strange.

    In the forum manager I have default sort field set to 'last post time' and Default Sort Order set to 'descending'.

    Yet when I look in any of the fora the display seems to be alphabetical - descending from Z to A. If I click the 'last post' column in the forum itself it re-orders them to the way I want but if I go out of the forum and come back in I have the same problem.

    Is there something I'm missing?

    Run these queries to update all forums:

    Code:
    UPDATE forum
    SET defaultsortorder = 'desc'
    Code:
    UPDATE forum
    SET defaultsortfield = 'lastpost'
    Then you will need to update your forum info:

    Admin CP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters

      Check this setting in your User CP:

      User CP -> Edit Options -> Visible Post Elements -> Thread Display Options
