Title: Comment order
Post by: unitron on July 03, 2012, 09:33:28 PM
Is there a way to get comments to display in chronological order from top to bottom, so that one sees the first and oldest comment at the top of the page and newer ones below?

So that, for instance, an answer to this post, which, absent use of time travel technology, would have occurred at some time afterwards, would be displayed below this post.

It's showing above.

It's showing below on mine, in other words, Unitron's post starting the thread is on top, my reply is under his and Jozz's is under mine.

Maybe it's an adjustment in your user settings? I'll check and see if there's a default setting for it on this end.

Also, I know that guests browsing the forums see things differently than users because their "permissions" are fewer.

They are showing bottom to top for me as well.

Mine show at the bottom now. This is what I did:

At the top of the screen hover over the profile tab and then click forum profile.

Next click modify profile.

Then uncheck show newest posts first.

Click save and you're done.

Thanks, that's the answer!  I just found and changed the default for the board so now everyone's should be correctly. If not, just change  your individual profile to uncheck "show newest posts first."

Thank you, things are now as they should be.

Well, with comment order, anyway, that world peace thing still has a way to go.
