PostSubject: Going to take me a while.....   Sat Oct 31, 2015 2:37 am

I'm sure it will catch on, IB, but the new posts up at the top of the page gets me every time. The old dog is used to the old forum way, I guess. Plus my IPad doesn't show me which topics I haven't read. That and I will need to spend time digging in to the settings to see if I can set notifications to "on" so that I don't ignore people that have responded on a thread that I have commented on. I hate the appearance of a snub by me. Thanks again for all the hard work IB. Very much appreciated.

Oops. And then I saw the "classic" button and it makes the format much closer to the old style, including bold text for new and newly added to threads. Maw maw never said I was the sharpest........ Wink

Pleased that you found 'the button' Soap.

I went for newest at the top as I use that convention when I open my Gmail account so I see the latest e-mails on the first page.

I also have my original e-mail account using Thunderbird and on that I have the newest at the bottom. However that always defaults to show the bottom of the page on first launching.

How weird am I?

Perhaps we should have a poll to see which is the favoured option and I can alter the settings again if the majority are like you?

Cheers!

IB

No poll necessary in my opinion, just my observation that it's taking me a bit to get up to speed Smile. I'll get used to it, you know, sometime before I turn 70. Hope you are doing well, my friend.

Having said the 'below', and thinking back, I'm sure that we did have the newest thread/post at the top on the old forum immediately after the 'stickies' as well.

Let me know when you get used to it and then......I can change everything again to confuse you!  bounce

No, I wasn't talking about the threads themselves, I was talking about the posts within a thread that show up in reverse order (newest at top). In any case, no issues IB. All good. Happy All Hallow's Eve to you!

I can reverse the posts order without any difficulty, and I know it kind of flies in the face of logic to have the last post first. After all you wouldn't expect to find the last chapter of a book at the front.....unless you read Japanese of course (that really threw me watching people read books when we were on trains in Japan seeing them turning pages from front to back!).

However I tend to think that it is slightly easier to see the latest first rather than scrolling through all the posts that one has previously read, particularly if a thread is well-subscribed.

I'm sure I'll get used to it. As I said, just going to take me a while Smile
