    Anyone know how you order the posts in a thread under this new software. I always have the latest posts first on all threads. The change has set it back the first posts showing first, which for mean is a pain.

    I can't find where to change it

    John, I think I found it. On the right side of the title bar is a "Last Message" with an arrow next to it. Clicking on that appears to change the order to the most recent at the top of the list.

    Hah! They probably pay the board a fee for that little service!

    Yes. that's always been there but it seems to change back every time you log in. On the previous software there used to be a preference where you could change the order of posts.

    This software always seems to log you out as well even though you clicked on the 'Keep me logged in' box.

    Interesting. It only seems to show up for me the first time I click and go into a section, and not when I go into a thread of posts.

    I haven't encountered any of the problems that you guys are having. I wonder if it makes a difference what type of device or software you're using. My clunker system is a tower with XP and Mozilla. Works perfect on all the GearTalk forums.

    This is the only forum that has changed. Even the Gibson Talk logo (sunburst les paul) is gone. All the others look exactly the same as they did before. All the others still open up in Tapatalk (on my tablet and iphone) except this one. I wonder why this is the only one that has changed?

    Well I got rid of the eBay listings. If you select the user, you will get a popup. Select "ignore" and refresh your screen. They should be gone.

    To order the posts, select "new posts" from the menu, then on the far right near the top, select "recent posts". If you save this to your favourites you should at least see all the recent posts in order.

    Well this new software seems to have killed off activity around here.

    I AGREE!!!! I've tried to PM the Mod a few times and I'm getting no response. I'm really kinda pissed at this whole thing. I don't like the MLP site as I found too many "d!cks" hanging around there. Right now I'm just checking in here and trying to keep this alive but it just looks like you, me and sometimes Stan that keep coming back.

    we still seem to attract guests (and robots too)! But I'm sure they see nothing happening and they don't come back. sad....

    I'm here every few days, but I agree that the place is not really rockin, right now. Big changes always seem to make a site less desirable. Since all the fora seem to be owned by the same guy, whaddaya gonna do?
    All we can do is show up and be our usual brilliant, incisive selves.

    Fully agree Rob, especially about the other place. This software is the worst I have seen for a forum.
