Does anyone else find it frustrating that when you click on a post to read it you then have to find the bottom of the last page to find the poster's original question in order to make sense of the answers that happen to appear first?

Surely it would be easier if the forum owner's could reset the forum so you can see the question first and then all the answers afterwards, after all when having a conversation you don't start with the answers first and then ask the question last.

Would anyone else prefer to see the original poster's question at the top of the 1st page?

Given how diverse the reply posts sometimes meander....knowing the original post statement or question might not be at all usefull.

This only happens (i.e. original post on the last page) if you are logged in.

well that seems daft, surely those that are logged in are the ones most likely to want to post a reply to someone's post and if you have to scroll to the end surely that would put off some people replying to the post (which I thought was the whole idea of a forum of any kind)

Just change it in your settings.

- Click on User CP at the upper left
- Click on Edit Options in the column along the left of the window
- Under Thread Display Options, find Thread Display Mode and select Linear - Oldest First
- Click Save Changes at the bottom of the window.

That should take care of it.

If there's something you don't like about how the forum works, go look at your setting options. I didn't know what you were talking about (I've had mine set for almost 16 years), but I poked around and found it. It's just taking the time to look.
