OK, I've changed the default order so that the first post is at the beginning. Of course members can still have whatever order they want by just clicking on the thread title. Smiley

I've had a look in Admin and I may be able to reverse the default topic order so that the topic starts with the first post (by date) if there is enough demand for this? Undecided

Be that as it may, I use Google Reader to keep track of new posts on ChessPub Forum without logging in. Now it seems all the threads are "ordered" in reversed chronological order. That makes reading very difficult. When I logged in, things seem to have revert back to a chronological order.

Can anyone explain why? Does it serve any purpose other than discourage "guests? I remembered I "lurked" as a guest for many months before gaining the courage to register and began posting. This discouragement might be counter-productive! Does anyone else have the same problem?

However I seem to be unable to click on the topic title any more; it's not active.  This is annoying because I suddendly see messages in reverse order whenever I'm not logged in (which I very often am not).  As a mere guest, I have no profile to change.

I don't think this works for guests, maybe it's deliberate to persuade people to register! Smiley

Basically you just have to click on the title of a thread.

How to sort topics?

HI,

recently I suddenly had the most topical post of a thread on the top of the list. Before it was on the last place.

Now it changed again - I have to most topical post at the end of the thread.

Anyone could tell me, if I can change the order myself and how?

Thanks!
