Order new threads by category

Is there a way to order the new or unread threads by category? I used to love the function to see which messages had been entered in the last three days when I got back to the computer Monday morning.

Thanks. I love the site.

The default new posts order is by post date.

Try this: http://www.board.crossfit.com/search...w&sortby=forum

Thanks. That was perfect. Now my OCD gets to be comfortable again with the change.

Ron, it looks like the default is now sorted by forum ... anyway to give us an option. I personally prefer by date.

By forum will be the default since it's a lot easier to figure out.

If you use the querystring Ron provided without the &sortby=forum, you should be back in chaos-land!

Re: Order new threads by category

By forum is annoying because I have to scroll through the entire list to see the most recent. If I wanted to see each forum, I'd go in there directly.

Re: Order new threads by category

This is a terrible loss of functionality. I used to be able to search for threads updated in the past day, three days etc, and see the results all in one page. This made if very easy to scan the threads and look at those that interested me. Now the new search means I need to click through 3 or 5 or more pages to see the updated threads. Quite painful and sad considering how useful the old search was. Cheers/ Brian

"Terrible loss of functionality"? Hardly. I'd say vBulletin has about 50x the functionality of Discus.

Try that link up top called "quick links." First one is "today's posts."

If you want more than today's, click "new posts" and you'll get all since you last checked.

Hi Lynne - Yes Quick Links -> today's posts works, but it's now four pages instead of one. Other things may have improved, but it's a pain to click through four pages instead of one. Cheers/Brian

Well, see, if you check about 5 times a day, it'll be a shorter list!
