How to have Separate sort options for posts v.s. stickies.

Post by martyb on February 11th 2013, 3:25 am

Hello, I am learning very much from reading the FAQ and tutorials. Maybe I overlook answer. Im looking for a way to have our stickies sorted; oldest-to-top and posts in forum to sort opposite; newest-to-top

How to do this please? Here is our link to the specific page where you can see.

Thank you both very much! I feel like I am making good progress. Very good

but i still can't seem to make the "announcement & sticky" sort different than "topics" section.

announcement & sticky; oldest to top
topics; newest to top

What am I missing to do still? I have "Separate posts and stickies : With a table" now but the two groups still sort in the same direction?
thanks, marty

There is not an option to sort (by date etc.) those types of threads differently then the regular ones. There could be some code that someone knows.

blackeye Yes we hope very much to solve this. We want stickies to stay "stuck" in certain order. When they are sorted newest to top, as we would like regular topics, it makes impossible to add new sticky to the BOTTOM if already existing stickies.
Thank you all for help! (still looking) Wink
