Sort postings.

Postby Alex_Moiseyev on Sun Nov 13, 2005 1:19 pm

Jason, I suggest you to change posting sort rules. For the time now most recent post is placed at the bottom of topic. I propose to place it on top.

In this case users will not need to scroll down all postings and can see most recet post immediately.

Interesting suggestion.... though i've never seen it done.
I'm sure it can be done, but i believe most people are used to seeing the "main post" first and the most recent post last.

Scrolling down through is a problem for those that visit the forum regularly like yourself.
However, for first time visitors, it may be helpful to see the entire thought progression top-bottom.

I'll make a note of it.
After i get some other things that i want done, i'll take a full suggestion list to the users of the forum/site to get their opinion. Hopefully by then we'll have a strong user base and i can tailor it to their preferences.

The way Jason mentioned is the typical format. I've never seen the proposed way done in a phpbb forum. If it is a thread that I've visited before, I press the End key on my keyboard after the thread has loaded to view the more recent post; hope that helps.

Jason, thanks for explanation. Sounds reasonable to me.

Matthew, thanks for helpful and useful advice.

I proposed this idea, because it is in use on Russian checkers forum, which has the same organisation.

However ... Russian forum is very well developed for 3 years and have hundred of topics with thousands postings.

Will see how it goes on ACF forum, when our topics get more than one page :lol:

I also notice at the bottom of the page, there is an option on how to sort posts....(though it only seems to work for the current topic) eventually i'll play with that and see if i can use it to set a profile option. That way each user has the option to sort it how they wish.

That would be very cool Jason. Keep up the great work! Did you see my posts on the checkers pieces in the suggestions? I edited them for you.
