Hi Dennis,
I have mentioned this before.
When you view the various topics they are in chronologocal order with the earlier replies on the top of the list. You have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list, sometimes changing the page(s) to read the latest replies.
I have looked on the Board Preferences to see if I could swap this around so that the latest replies are on the top of the page. I am sure this was how it was at one time.
Could you arrange for this to be done again to make it easier to read the latest news, comments and replies?
Thanks,
davidnam

I like it the way it is. If I want to read the most recent post I just click on the little page icon on the right.

Hi David,

I don't know what you mean about the order, also nothing has been changed to my knowledge.

The icon to click is next to the name of the last poster on the results page.

For example, I check on 'View new posts' or 'View active topics' and click on this icon on the right:

Hi David
The little page is in the right hand column next to a black arrow close to the name of the last poster.
Hope this helps.
Allen C

Hi Dennis & Allen C,
This icon does take you to the latest post and you can scroll up to see the previous posts in date order which is fine. But when you get to the top of the page and have to click the previous page, it takes you to the top of that new page so you have to scroll down to the bottom to get the most recent postings, this is what I find a little irritating.
When viewing the Board Index the topics are listed with the latest topics by date on the top of the page so you could scroll down the page to see the earlier ones. This is how I would have liked to see the postings on each topic when viewing them.
I understand the logic why the latest postings go below the last post, but if it can be done for the Board Index it could be done for the replies in each Topic !
Anyway, thanks for your help, I'll use the icon.
