  • [Answered] How do I change post order

    While I want the threads to be displayed by date order (which it does now), I would like the posts within the threads to be displayed in numerical order (ie the first post on top, followed by the second, etc.). How do change the settings for that?

    Thanks
    It's been a pretty day.
    I hope you enjoyed it.

    That is the default behaviour, there's no way to change it. Is it possible you are viewing the thread in Hybrid or Threaded mode? (Display menu in top-right of the thread header).

      Settings > General Settings > Thread Display Mode:

      Can I change the order of posts?
      You have a choice over how you view threads. When you're in a thread, look at the top bar. On the right hand side you'll see 'Display Mode'. Click on this and it lets you change how posts are ordered.
      You have three choices:
      Linear Mode - posts are displayed chronologically, usually from oldest to newest. Posts are shown in a flat mode so that many posts can be viewed simultaneously. It is possible to change the ordering by changing your preferences in the User CP
      Threaded Mode - a tree is shown along with every post. This shows you the relationship each post has to the others. It's easy to see who responded to whom. Only one post is shown at a time. By clicking on a single post in the post tree, the page will show that post and all posts made in response to it.
      Hybrid Mode - This is a mixture of the linear and threaded modes. The post tree is displayed as in the threaded mode, but many posts are shown at the same time as in the linear modes.

            Is there a way that I can merge older posts into a new thread, but have the newest post (that I made to create the thread) be listed at the top as the very first post? Basically, there was a discussion in a thread that was completely off topic, so I started another thread with a post as a header, or informative post with a summary of the topic being discussed. I want that post to be at the very top. The very first post. When I moved the post from the other thread into the newer one, all the older posts were displayed first and my header, being the older post, is shown last.

            Can this be done?

              Yes that can be done.

              1) Create new thread
              2) Use phpmyadmin to change the post dateline to a date older than the oldest post you want to move
              3) Move posts from thread to new thread

                Awesome Andy, thanks a lot.

                Now I just have to figure out phpmyadmin. Right now the only programs I'm running my site with is vBulletin. (And I'm a noob if you couldn't tell.) I'm also using Filezilla as well.

                It looks as if I need PHP 5.2 and MySQL 5 as well to run phpmyadmin, but I have neither of those programs and am completely un-experienced with them.

                Is there anyway I can change the post order through vBulletin? (Unless someone wants to walk me through phpmyadmin.) I've tried to install it but it won't let me due to not having any associated programs.

                  Ask your web hosting provider to install phpmyadmin for you.
