Solved How to show oldest posts first

Post by buddylee0927 on January 18th 2012, 9:15 pm

Currently my forums is set to show the newest posts first in the thread.
I would like to reverse this and have the original posts be displayed first.

Thanks in advance.

When I reply to a post, my reply becomes the first post of the thread when it is opened instead of the original post. I want it to read like a story so to speak. I want it ot be read from beginning to end, not from the last (most recent post) to the original post (first post). Does that help clarify?

Edit: Mental picture to help:

This is how it currently looks:

Test test (2nd post) (1/9/12)

Hi! (first post) (1/1/12)


this is how I want it to look:

Hi! (first post) (1/1/12)

Test test (2nd post) (1/9/12)

You could try this:
Admin Panel -> General -> Messages & e-mails -> Configuration -> Always show the first post in the topic "Yes"

I did change this to yes but it didn't seem to help.

It seems I can't post a picture to show you better.

Here is a link: Please copy and paste in browser.

https://2img.net/h/i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm104/buddylee0927/forum.png

This shows the newest post being the first in the thread. The 2nd post should be the one shown first in order of the thread.

I think this is where I'm missing a setting though. I created a 3rd post in the same thread and they are all reversed. The newest post (I just posted 5 seconds ago) is the first post listed in the thread. I want the post I just posted to be the LAST in the thread because it is the newest post.
