How to sort posts by recently updated?

Is this possible? I've looked at my posts, and some had questions directed to me, but which I didn't know about until I started scanning the previous pages (ie 9 back, 3 weeks later).

  1. click on your name at the top right of the page and you'll get a list of topics where you participated. HTH

      that's the same as clicking on MyChow, and I still have to click through page by page. What I'd like are all of the posts which I've contributed to which have been recently updated by anyone--not just me. Is this possible?

        i think you have to go back through earlier pages. i'd like to know also.

        i don't understand why the "new"-designation threads are clustered at the top of each previous page. i wish the "new"-designation threads would be all grouped up front, on the first "my chow" page. or that this could be an option to sort.

          It sorts by the date of your most recent reply, splits into pages and then sorts within each page by the date of the most recent reply from anyone. So, if you make a new post to a thread, it will float to the front of your myCHOW page, and stay there until you make 25 other posts to push it off the page, after that, it won't appear on your front page again unless you personally make another post to the thread.

          I still consider this a problem, and I have a ticket open with Engineering to have it fixed, so that it sorts by most recent reply first, and then breaks it into pages.

            thanks. it is neat to learn the terminology, if nothing else. most important, thanks for looking toward improvements, jacquilynne!
