    When I open up a forum the threads seem to be sorted in a random order, or certainly in an order I don't understand. Stickies etc are first, but then the date order is all over the place. Perhaps this is in order of original first post date?
    If I click on the top of the "Last Post" column, the threads are sorted in order of last post (most recent at top), which is what I prefer. But if you leave that forum and return the order is 'wrong' again.
    How can I make the order stay in the 'last post at the top' format? This was the default arrangement on the old forum, and on all other forums I've used.

    Thanks.

    Go to UserCP > Edit Options > scroll down and you'll see Thread Display Options. Choose whatever option you want and click Submit/Save down at the bottom.

    Also, within the forum itself, click on "Last Post" and it will sort itself by date (oldest to newest, or newest to oldest).

    This sorts the order that the threads within the post are sorted. I don't have a problem with this.

    The problem is the sort order of the posts in a forum, not the order of threads within a post.

    The advice you give is correct, i.e. "Also, within the forum itself, click on "Last Post" and it will sort itself by date (oldest to newest, or newest to oldest)."

    But, when you go to another forum (or if you return to a forum you've already re-sorted) then the sort order is wrong again. Is there some way to permanently show the posts in what is a normal forums default sort order, that is, 'Most recent post at the top'?

    It's been adjusted.
