The MOD I linked to adds topic time in UCP, but also adds functions you want in the ACP, no?
Adds "Default topic list order:" to ACP > Forums > Edit forum, this might be overriden by the settings in UCP.
Adds possibility to override user sort settings in some forums.
ehm do you now what i want..?
If you go to viewforum je can set word D and all topic with start letter D show.
(its write on picture http://storage1.own.cz/forum.jpg
and this mode only add choose form to acp a upc:
You can set deufalt sorting in forum for all(in acp) or you can set deufalt sorting only for you(in ucp)
But you cannot choose only one letter( e.g. D) for sort only topic who contain this first letter ( e.g. Downlad, Dare, Dump)
