Sequence of postings

Jump to solution

I noticed today when I open a random thread the order of postings is from newest to oldest, it was vice versa before.

 

What happened?

 

Example:

Dear Moderators,

consider to change the default back to what it was for so many years , show the newest post at the end of a thread!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

   Perhaps some team of experts tried (at long last) to get the
all-topics listings to appear in the order of most recent posting
instead of the order of first posting, and this was the best they could
do.


   One is left wondering how the world-class talent running this
operation can make a change like this and not notice it.  (Or think that
it's an improvement.)

I visited some thread and all looked normal, then again in a wrong order:

>order of postings is from newest to oldest

 

Looks ok to me but I use oldest to newest AND absolute time in ISO 8601 format.

Some of your examples looks like a mixture of relative and absolute.

 

Other than the cookie problem trying to login, I'm not having any problems.

 

>to get the all-topics listings

 

I would assume the order of posts in a topic is separate than the order of all-topics.

They already have N different options to order topic posts and one should make anyone happy.  😉

The order inside a single thread is the problem (see screenshots).

 

It is from oldest to newest, on next reload from newest to oldest - without changing any option.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

I noticed this as well this morning.   For me all posts that I visit show the latest post at the top of the page.

 

I dont see any options to change the post layout order.  

 

If this is considered an improvement, then I disagree.  To read a post new to you, you now have to scroll all the way down and then read up through the replies.  Annoying!

>I don't see any options to change the post layout order.

 

As I said, there are zillions of options.

There is linear vs topic.  And order by time.

Some are in the User Preference and some are on the Topic Options.

 

>To read a post new to you, you now have to scroll all the way down


I have mine jump to the first unread post.

OK, I see now.  Thanks.

 

The wording isnt very clear, but to adjust the order of the posts within a topic when viewing that topic:

 

 

 

...versus changing the order of how posts appear if you are viewing the board using the 'List By Topics' view:

 

 

 

Fun fun!

Hope this helps!

>but if not, then you'll get the default (which apparently has changed).

 

This is obvious to me and I immediately login because I don't like that non ISO 8601 format.

 

>Just when you think that things can't get any lamer,

 

I assume you also ran into the case where you have to change your HP Passport password every 6 months too?  😉
