If you go into your User CP, then Options, you have the possibility of changing this by clicking 'Do you want to reverse the displayed order of posts in the topic?'.


More accurate:

User CP > Profile > Options

...where it has a checkbox with the following verbiage...

{
Do you want to reverse the displayed order of posts in the topic?

If checked, posts are displayed from most recent post first to oldest post last. If unchecked, the oldest post displays first, newest post displayed last.

Note: You can [also] change this option by clicking on the name of the topic on the topic page
}

If you go into your User CP, then Options, you have the possibility of changing this by clicking 'Do you want to reverse the displayed order of posts in the topic?'. The default is off (i.e. as before where the oldest is first and the newest last), but I actually prefer to have the newest first myself.

I can only take part of the credit for the fix. AlanG provided a link that I didn't check til after I'd posted my last message.  There, Papageno also found the solution.

Thanks, S_F, I suffered from the same.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

If you click on the title of the thread, it will invert the order of the threads. So, all you need to do to "fix" the problem is to click on the thread of the title.

I've inadvertently clicked on the thread title several times and only discovered the remedy by accident.


Thanks, fixed now. That was obnoxious.

Sounds like the same problem that Markovich had.

Instead of the newest post being on the last page, suddenly they're all on the first page.

Is this only my computer, or is this a forum-wide change? I don't like it at all, it's obnoxious (no other forum does it that way that I'm aware of).
