View Full Version : Sorting by new threads first post only?

I think this is similar to the format someone is working on, but I like the format that's out there right now except sorting the posts. There may be a way to do this, but I haven't found one - probably just my ignornace in using the new SW.

So, using the existing vBulliten viewer/format, how do I sort the threads in a forum by the date of the starting thread only??

It's similar to new posts but only queries the first/starting thread post and/or date...

Any way to do so?

This is a slightly unconventional, as most prefer
not to have to click to the last page of listings to read the
later posts.

But, you may wish to see the chronology of the threads:

Incidently, this behavior is the default for the threaded listing,
which is accessible here:

<a href="http://www.sawmillcreek.org/thread">http://www.sawmillcreek.org/thread</a>

Newest posts are at the bottom, older posts at the top.

yea that's basically the ordering I like expect in reverse - i..e most recent on top. I like the vBulletin front page as is, just like it shorted like the 'thread' page...I take it there's no similar sort for the normal 'forum' page format/look and feel.

Anyway, just curious.

Thanks for the info,
