topic / posts sort newest first?

Recommended Posts

I was looking for a way to set this for me personally, but I couldn't find it in the settings.

Thoughts on making the default behavior be newest posts to a topic be on the top of the thread?

Yes that would be great.

 

Some groups do it automatically, and others do not.  Kind of a PITA

I've tried the sort button, and it works while in that forum, but it doesn't stay when you go back into that forum.

Try the Tapatalk app. You can set it to Unread posts. If it’s crap you don’t want to read you just press and hold and it disappears without having to open the thread.

I am wondering if this forum template supports user preferences setting the sorting defaults for the user, but it's just not enabled.

If people like the way it is now, cool.  If most don't, perhaps we can change it site-wide.

We could have a poll or something to be democratic about it.  Just ideas here.

I'm running into this with the "Trail Conditions" forum. When I view it, the topics are always listed alphabetically. I can change the "Sort By" option to "most recently updated", but when I come back to the forum it is listed by title again.

I think this is intentional.  If people are really using this section to learn about trail conditions, it's much easier to find the thread of interest if they are listed alphabetically.  For other sections, this doesn't make sense, so the default sorting method is most recent first.

What would be nice is if the system could be forced to list all the topics in the Trail Conditions section on one page.  That way you wouldn't always have to go to page 2 to get conditions updates for the SATN and Walnut Creek...

I can't individually change the Trail Conditions forum to display more topics than the other forums.  I did change the Trail Condisions forum so the topics are shown with the most recent updated topics first.  I had them set to alphabetical thinking it would make it easier for people to scan and find the trail system they're looking for, but I agree it's a bit confusing relative to how the rest of the forum works.
