I can't find it, so maybe not there (or maybe it's like that jar of pickles I can never find in the fridge), but in a lot of online forums you can set a viewing preference of oldest post or newest post first for reading threads. I know this'll sound like something from the old days, but it's easier when viewing new responses to old threads to view newest first (for me). I started to chase a couple of new old threads today that are several pages long, with the newest post on the last page. Also, some forum software gives you a viewing choice of how many posts per page, or to view the entire thread as one long page. Both of these things are "wish list", not to-die-for....

There is a filter. Look to the top corner of the thread page you are on, you will see filter.

And we don't have the variable posts per page but I did use the 20 threads per post as on the last software.

What I'm looking for is a global setting, that would allow me to go to a Forum like the one called " IH Cub Cadet Tractor Forum " and within each thread (subject) see the newest post within that thread. Typically with that global setting, the threads are each still listed newest to oldest, just the entries within each thread are sorted oldest to newest or newest to oldest. The reason for this is a lot of older threads have multiple pages and while it is shown as having new entries, you have to go through multiple pages to get to the newest entry..

Or perhaps use the "button" on the right , above the first entry that says Jump to New.? I haven't yet tried it, but I will now.

I also just noticed that threads I had viewed before - when I clicked the link to move into it, it jumps to the first new post in that thread! The other jump to new does work but I had already jumped to the new post so it didn't do anything sometimes...

I have the same gripe as Gerry above, but following Mike's "work arounds" I can get to a semi-workable solution. The one thing about the oldest at the top newest down sorting is that it does expose you to every post, whereas with the with the newest first, I often only back-track to pick up antecedents to the latest post. Sometimes this is good, sometimes it is not, but, like Gerry, I would like to be able to choose the sort order per thread. Seems like a "reader friendly" option to me.

Do you see a "What's New" tab at the top of the forum page? Not sure if it's a moderator only feature. When I click that, I get all the new posts listed. EDIT: Never mind, I get what you are looking for and my suggestion was not it. I don't see a way to make it work how Gerry was hoping for.
