Suggestion


Is it possible to change the way that threads are read so that they go "backwards" i.e. latest post first, so that new members (or anyone) when they click on the thread title see the latest posts rather than the first one, that would be nice for threads that run to hundreds of pages?

Just an idea.

I'll come up with others, but this struck me this morning, I'd like to have, newest to oldest posts so that new members have to go to the last page to see the first post especially in threads that just go around about nothing in particular.

Re: Suggestion


Hi MO,

If Thor was to implement such a feature, it would have to be a per-user option. I would personally hate to read a long post, then have to scroll up past it and find the top of another long post before I can continue reading the discussion. If this was ever a board option, I would never join a board that was set up that way.

That said, if you would like to see such a feature implemented, you should post it in the Feature Requests forum at Runboard Support, so anyone else who may like the idea can voice their support for it.

Re:


I was just wondering if it was possible. I'm thinking more about games and basic "how are you today" sort of threads it would be nice to have the option on some forums where what was going on in a member's life in 2008, long after they've left, is not interesting.

No problem I can see what you're saying.

Re:


Once the list of posts goes beyond one page, there is a link to jump to the last post.

We do have the → link that takes you to the last post in a thread, but I think this would be better.

The college frat board I was on a few years ago worked like that. Nice feature.

I occasionally visit a board that has both; a link to the last page in a topic, as well as a link to the first unread reply. If I had my way, we'd have both, too. emoticon

Is it complicated to code or he just has other priorities?

I have no idea if it's complicated to code, but I do know he's working on other things.

Re:


Rational Skepticism has that. There's a little red icon under the thread title that takes you to your bookmark. That would be nice. I use it there all the time. I understand that it's complicated to read a thread backwards, like Facebook does, only the newest replies are shown and you can open the thread to see the whole thing. If we could have a bookmark, I'd really like that.
