  • [Forum] How to turn off Viewing the Newest Post First When Entering a Thread

    I have looked in user group persmissions and all over the options, but how do I change the default setting to not show the newest posts first in a forum...

    IE: if you enter a thread, the new posts are arranged from top to bottom.. top being new post and bottom being the older ones.

    In the forum manager in the AdminCP, choose the forum you want to change and configure these options:

    Default Sort Field
    Default Sort Order

        Have you tried rebuilding forum and thread information?

          The options I gave are for thread display...I misread the post, sorry.

          To do what is required, you need to exectute a pre-stored SQL query via the admin CP as it is a user settin.

          Though bear in mind the user can set theirs back again!

          AdminCP > Maintenance > Execute SQL Query
          From the drop down select "Posts - Oldest First" and submit.

          You need to have sql query permissions in config.php to do this.

            Let the user choose.

            In your own Settings:

            Settings > General Settings > Thread Display Options > Linear Oldest - First


            vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

                That'll change new users but not existing ones.
