  • Thread/post view question

    When a thread is opened, it shows the posts from the beginning. I could swear that we had the ability to set it so that when a thread was opened, it would show the last post opposed to the first. Have I overlooked this? I searched through the admin panel, but didn't see this feature.

    I want to set it so that when a thread is opened, the member would see the last post instead of the first. Some of the threads on my forums are in excess of 50+ responses. Those following them hate having to click to go to the end of the thread.

    Look for the Thread Display settings in vBulletin Options. This sets the default view mode for new members:

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> User Registration Options -> Thread Display Mode -> Linear - Newest First

    To reset options for existing users:

    Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Execute SQL Query -> Automatic Query

    Then choose the appropriate query and click on 'Continue'.

      Thanks Steve. I knew it was an oversite on my behalf.
