    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.
    Let the user choose.

    In your own Settings:

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

    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.

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

    Default Sort Field
    Default Sort Order
