Is there a way to change the order in which postings to a topic show up.
Especially for topics with multiple pages. Most often I have already read earlier posts, so when I open it again, I want to see the most recent post first.
Yes, I know that if I click on All and then click Go Down, it will get me there, but it seems thats what I'm doing almost every time.

Yea, it looks like you can do exactly that under profile/modify profile/look and layout I think it was.

Also, if you click on the new icon, it takes you to the last post you read. A better option i think.

At the top of each column theres a little triangle that allows you to change the sort order. Click on the triangle on top of the date column and it will reverse the order. That or what Jeff pointed out will get you what youíre looking for. I know that itís working the way describe for me but I canít remember if I had to change anything or not.

Correction:  the sort order is for topics in a forum, not replies in a post. But it certainly does/can work the way you describe.

The yellow "NEW" icon to the right of the topic is the quickest/best way.  :)

It always surprises me that a lot of folks don't realize that "new" is there as a function.  The largest database table on this entire forum, is the one that keeps track of what every single logged in member has looked at. It is singly the greatest tool for the member to keep track. It's bigger than the rest of the entire database.

New and the notification bubbles are probably better than emails. Emails for registration and stuff.

Don't overlook the "Mark Read" button in the top right corner of the topic page.  If there are topics that you don't wish to open, hover over that button and it turns yellow.  Click on it and all of the unread topics appear to be read.

The same is true for the entire forum's "Mark All Messages as Read" button at the bottom right of the home page.
