sort topics by date descending?

I hate when there are long posts and you have to get all the way to the bottom to see the most recent posts. Only when you get there can you access the "sort by date descending" popups which put the most recent posts at the top.

Is there some way to globally set this, or an easier way to view the most recent posts in long topics?

Hi Vince,
User Control Panel -> Board Preferences-> Edit Display Options-> Display post order direction
set to descending and hit submit

seems to work

cheers

i see this at the bottom of this TOPIC:

The descending/ascending button will sort posts by recency.
These buttons might be better positioned at the top of the 'page' rather than below.

Thanks,John. I was looking at Board Prefs yesterday, but I missed those little tabs off to the left.
Getting old is difficult. ;-)
