How do I arrange my posts in decending order

Hi everyone,

Not sure which category this should be posted. I hope I have choosen the right one. Apologies if not.

I am new here on this forum and I would like my posts/replies to the thread I've raised here so that the lastest reply appear first instead of having to scroll all the way through past replies before getting to the most recent one. Is there a setting to do this as I can't seem to find it ?

Many thanks

I don't believe that is an option. Not to my knowledge anyway. In my opinion I think that wouldn't work well. The original post needs to be at the top for the thread to make any sense. Also, I would hope any responder would FIRST read all the previous responses before posting. Reading an unfolding story is done from the top down.

Good point. Thanks.

I guess it would be good if this can be made only when viewing from my own browser rather than what is displayed on the site. But I guess this would need a much advanced technology.:(

BTW, is there a way to indicate that this thread/problem is sorted or finished or resolved or similar ?

Threads stay open/active for a period of time. I believe it is at least 90 days without a new response before the thread is locked. Unfortunately, many threads are not resolved. Mainly due to the original poster not coming back after an initial post.

If you wish to follow a thread that you have not replied to just click on the red flag at the top to mark as unread. Any response will automatically notify you of a response.

Read the options in My Home to set up you account as you would like it. You can get email notifications if you like for the threads and for private messages.

One other thing worth noting. You can edit any of YOUR responses except for the initial post.

Thanks... I could have said it better myself! BTW, all posts are open for 8 months.

"I could have said it better myself!" Freudian slip? LOL

Nope, I really don't think I could have said it better. Sorry for the typo!
