Topic Sort Order

Post by oddfish » Thu Apr 05, 2007 5:01 am

Noticed when a topic is replied to, that topic is then on top of the forum topic list.

I would appreciate any ideas to have that so the topics posted stay as per post time and not the replies ordering the topics.

...and to have this option set for individual forums.

thanks in advance.

Thanks Thatbitextra.

We have a problem then (perhaps). :?

Topics :
Post Time
Descending

Posts:
Post Time
Ascending

When a user posts a reply to a topic, the topic replied to then goes to the top of the list.

Topics are being ordered by the post time of posts (replies) not by the topic posted time. I am wanting the topics to stay as per their post time.

Hope there is a solution. :)

The phpBB2 mod that was done for default sort order, is I hope to be ported to phpBB3, as I need that funcatallity. And would solve your problem too.

Mine is the need to have topics in some rooms sorted by subject - like a library :)

That mod allowed each room to be set up to a default - for that room only - by the adminCP.

That's the one. 8)

Nothing worse than an old topic on page 91 being put on page 1 at the top of the list.

Oh ... wait - this topic will now end up at the top of this forum (apologies to all who didn't want to see it there). :?

There's a phpBB2.x MOD called Topic Cement that allows you to arrange topics as you want. I'm sure it will be ported to 3.
