Default Question for administrators of this forum

I don't know under what category to put this so I'll post it here.

I have no knowledge when it comes to websites but I wonder why when you read messages the first message is on the last page or on the bottom of the page.

It would be better if the message that opens a thread is first in the line and then going down to next message. It is just more common and easier that way.

Or is it how this site is powered by....

It can be done either way - you can set your preferences in your control panel (User CP button on top right hand side).

I've just changed that for you - let me know if it worked.

Ah, that solves the mystery of why the posts are 'oldest first' when not logged in, and 'newest first' when logged in. I only log in when I want to answer a post, and sometimes get mixed up when the order changes for the current post of interest.

Maybe the setting for non-logged in viewers could be consistent with the default setting for logged-in users?

Good point - I've done that. Thanks very much for the suggestion.

Unfortunately, I think that it is only effective for new members - it won't change current members' settings.
