Help! Forum Posting Are Backwards! How Do I Change?


NM-Veterano

Question

Hello everybody, I heard about this place at another vet site and have been visiting /lurking here for about 2 weeks. I know that this is going to sound stupid but for those 2 weeks I was finding it very hard to read the posts because they are not in chronological order. For example, post #1 on a thread is actually the last post in the thread and so forth. Also the last page in the forum (currently page 75, I believe) is actually the latest page and by my reckoning should be page #1 but page #1 is actually the oldest page in the system. For me everything is out of whack and I have been trying to put everything into proper order but cannot find the controls to do so. Help! :rolleyes::unsure:

Welcome aboard. I visit this board almost every day and what works for me is on the line at the top of the page that says "Logged in as" I click on the View New Post and by doing that I get the post that are recent that I have not viewed before. You can also go to the bottom and change chronoligical order to ZtoA or AtoZ but I have not been able to make it stay that way after I log out. Terry Sturgis

Go to the bottom of the page, each time you come into Veterans Affairs Claims and Benefits Research page, look at the post order. Change the post order from A-Z, click the box, and change it to Z-A, and then hit the go button. This will put the most current post at the top of your page. You don't need to do this in social forum.

This works great for me as I am kind of backwards, part of the time, anyway.

It might be that this would confuse someone who doesn't belong here anyway. That is someone, that might be a Veterans Adversary, rather than a veterans Advocate. It takes a little getting use too.

I consider it a hadit signature

thanks for jumping in stretch appreciate the assist.

when we first set up the forum there was quite a bit of back and forth about which order they should be in

newest at the top

oldest at the bottom

it seemed at the time the consesus was oldest at the top newest at the bottom.

this can be changed by me if folks want it there other way. should we take a poll?

Thanks for all your replies everybody.

I know that one of you thinks that I might be the enemy but I assure you that I am not. I have introduced myself in a new topic so you can read a little about me. Excuse my confusion about the way that this forum is laid out but I would come here and read post #1 and it would not make any sense because it seemed like the poster was talking to an invisible person and then after a couple of weeks I realized that poster #1 was replying to poster #2 who was replying to poster #3 etc. etc.

I do like the idea of having a poll to see how people prefer the chronological layout to be for this forum since I might pull up a chair and stay awhile.

Welcome NM Vetrano,

I am very sorry if you have taken what I said the wrong way. The new guy is upper-most in my mind. I was just commenting, that, those who want to stay - will find a way. What is most important, is that, more than one of us has jumped-in to help you. I am not the most articulate person, in here, that is for shore. Forgive my clumsy welcome. It is all in the message not my opinion.
