Hi.

I'm running 3.1.12 and I can't find anything about posting order, which I would like "Ascending" (newest last, correct?)
May you help me?

See your UCP
ucp.php?i=ucp_prefs&mode=view
Thanks.
But I would set it, as admin, for all users... should I do something else or more?

There have been many discussions on this subject and I expect there are extension requests for it (you should have a search) but I think it's getting a bit late in the day for requesting extension for 3.1 as it's EOL and there will be no support for it after July 1st 2018.

I'd be inclined to write a little sticky to inform your users how to do it in the UCP, in any case, how do you know your users want to change it, not many I would guess?

Edit: I just found this https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... rt_topics/

Thanks anyway but I saw my forum doesn't work properly with 3.2 (bbcodes, for example).
I will do it manually

My users won't decide, that's the way I want the forum works...

The thing is, why do you care how your users browse your board, you can't see how they have it? What happens if you go and change all the direction defaults and then your users go in and change it back?

You'll have to upgrade at some time especially when your host says they're going to PHP 7.2, there's no time like the present and you will get support.

That, in my opinion, is one of the quickest ways to lose members

Yes, your opinion.
But, since it's a play-by-forum, why should users scroll up to see quest new posts? That's a nonsense. When you use an ebook, where's next page? Right or left?
That's my idea, right or wrong...
