Question on how to use the forum

Sorry for the dumb question, but:

Whenever I look at a thread, I see it with the newest first, and I'd prefer it the other way around.

The FAQ says:
When viewing a thread, you will be able to view the thread from a choice of four modes:

Linear Mode (Oldest First) - In this mode, posts are displayed chronologically from oldest to newest. Posts are shown in a flat mode so that many posts can be viewed simultaneously.
Linear Mode (Newest First) - This is the same as the above mode, except that posts are ordered in an opposite way (newest first).
Threaded Mode - In this mode, a tree is shown along with every post. This tree allows you to see the relationship each post has to others, in terms of who responded to whom. Only one post is shown at a time.
Hybrid Mode - This mode is a mixture of the linear and threaded modes. The post tree is displayed like in the threaded mode, but multiple posts are displayed simultaneously like in the linear modes.


I'd like to be able to set up the first option as default, but I can't see how to do that. Help!

thx Norm

It took me a while to figure that out at first. While looking at a post (not at the list of posts), click on display mode at the upper right of the post, then click on linear mode in the little box that comes up. Hope that helps!

Thanks, but it's already in Linear Mode, but newest to oldest, rather than vice versa. I want to switch it to the other way - oldest to newest.

Click on "Private Messages", then "Edit Options"

Scroll down to "Thread Display Options"

Change "Thread Display Mode" to "Linear - Oldest First"

Hope this helps...

Nick
