Changing Thread Sequence

Still learning the ropes around here. Is there a way to set the view of a thread so that it displays in sequence rather than according to which post was replied to? I find it hard to know if I have seen the latest post or not on any given thread.

  1. As you go back to the thread later, the only posts that will show are those that posted after you looked the previous time. Works very efficiently.

        Damn, thought it always worked. Now notice two threads it has not been working on. Damn

          I've not seen this problem personally, but a bug like this can be tricky to track down. If you can give me links to some of the threads where you've seen the issue, I should be able to start digging.

            802570( First date, gender etiquette question) thread was the only one l noticed and can remember. Still doing it, just checked.

    1. If I'm reading this correctly, I think you need to sign in first. Then it will show you the new posts in the threads you have made comments on. Without any new posts, there will not be a *new* icon to the left of the thread in your profile/my recent threads The new posts automatically come to the top of your profile.
