All-topics time warp?

   My usual all-topics pages seem to be living in the (mostly distant)
past, today.  For example:

/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-288/post-type/thread/interaction-style/forum
/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-280/post-type/thread/interaction-style/forum
/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-117/post-type/thread/interaction-style/forum
/t5/forums/recentpostspage/category-id/itrc-118/post-type/thread/interaction-style/forum

   The latest posts have date-times like:

Noticed the same thing (reported here) now - just few hours later - it seems automagically solved...

One thing I really miss is: to be able to sort all topics posted by the latest reply received...sometime one post a reply to a post then he/she forgets its reply...time goes by...and it became harder to understand if that topic received other newer replies.

I assume a Community user doesn't enable the Mail notification on new replies on his/her contributions.

Isn't it?

   Yeah.  I've complained about this repeatedly over the past four
years, with no result.  I assume that there's no hope.

   That and the HTML "<title> All Topics - Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Community</title>", which is identical for every forum.  Totally
useless.

   As an element, lithium is a lightweight.  As forum software, ...

   On the bright side, today, copy+paste seems not to "fix" all the
spacing in the pasted material.  It's something.

Yep.

Another very annoying thing I noticed - especially true if a Community user is used to stay within and move between Sub-Categories (like the ones available under the Networking macro category) back and forth - is that when you enter a Sub-Category (let me say, as example, the "Comware-Based" one) moving horizontally to others Sub-Categories looks cumbersome...I need to go up to the parent Category to then go down to the other Sub-Category...on Mobile is a real nightmare, on Desktop I learned to keep opened various web browser pages (tabs).

It's a matter of letting user to move up/down and left/right on category levels easily enough.

Yes, I use tabs too.

   What I have are complaints, not questions.

   Does the FAQ explain how to get HTML "title" directives which are
more distinctive than "All Topics - Hewlett Packard Enterprise
Community" for different all-topics pages?  My current "solution" is to
arrange the identical tabs in my browser in a particular order, and then
(try to) ignore the fact that I have four tabs which are all labeled
"All Topics...".

   Does the FAQ explain how to get an all-topics listing which is sorted
by date-time of last posting instead of first?

   If so, I've missed some things.
