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:

 

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Storage-Area-Networks-SAN-Small/P2000-G3-firmware-update/m-p/5977615#M6932

 

on top:     15 hours ago

 

at bottom:   08-07-2011 10:03 PM


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

I certainly appreciate the number of options available.  

 

However, it seems that "they" did not realize that just about every other discussion board out there has a format where the original post is displayed at the "top".  This certainly should not be the default setting, IMHO.

Which "this" is this?  Having the new default or having the oldest at the top?

LOL..sorry, that could have been worded better (and here I am complaining about how things are explained!).

 

What I meant was the default view should be as it was:  From within the topic, the original post is shown at the top of the page.

I agree with Robert Jewell's opinion.

 

To me the sort order with the newest on top is true nonsense.

 

It's really difficult to follw a thread being sorted upside down.

Has anyone figured out the exact way to duplicate this?

1) Is it because you aren't logged in?

2) Or the default was changed and people who noticed took the default instead of explicitly selecting the option of what they wanted?

 

None of the above two cases is true for me.

Hope this helps!

Randomly in that it changes on a refresh with no other posts?

If you sort by topic, new topics mess up the "order".

If I open this topic (thread), sometimes my initial post is on top, sometimes on bottom ... this started last week, never happened before.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

When I view this, or any, topic without being logged in, the latest post is at the top of the page.  This was a change that occurred last week as Torsten states (I was prepared to start the same topic if I didnt see one already there).

 

If I login, the post order within the topic changes to show the original post at the top of the page.  However, this is because I changed the setting "Linear Layout Settings - Linear Format: Sorting order within topics" from "Use default (newest first)" to "Oldest first".

 

For me this behavior is consistent.

But still nonsense - every other forum board in the world will show the newest comment at the bottom...

Hope this helps!
