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.

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!
Regards
Torsten.

>sometimes my initial post is on top, sometimes on bottom

 

So are you logging in between the two views?  That's the only time is is "broken" for me before I login.

I.e. the forum is useless for me, unless I login.

That is also my experience, which is  a PITA compared to the previous situation (where the default ordering is original post first).

The new ordering change is a minor problem compared to:

1) Need to login to reply

2) Need to login to see what's new

Now I can see the initial post at top again, even if I'm not logged in.

Can somebody confirm?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Yes, looks fixed. But it is very painful to look at the forum without logging in.  It isn't configured to my preferences.

(Not enough posts per page.)

 

And worst, I had to remove that cookie to login.  😞

Apparantly the default was changed back.  A look at the settings shows that the default is now "Oldest first".

 

 

 

 

Thank you!

1. As a system default - first things first NOT last things first.  Problem first and answer(s)/discussion follows.

2. Choice is nice, but so is letting folks know that there's been a change and a choice is possible *beforehand*

3. Did you ever hear of the a book/play/poem that started with "happily ever after"?

4. Go to #1

5. As a third alternative, why don't we have a "randomize" postings choice, and make it really interesting!
