Conversation Order

(1/2) > >>

Michael M:
For the life of me I cannot find the setting to change the order of the Conversations thread (posts w/individuals, not in a topic/thread). Mine show oldest-to-newest, so I always have to page to the end to get to recent responses.

Anyone have any ideas on where to go to change the sort order? I looked all over but I'm sure I'm missing it somewhere.

Transmute Jun:
On the top menu, go to Profile. Then under 'Modify Profile' you'll see a dropdown list, which includes 'Personal Messaging'. When you click on that, there are some options. The top one is a click box for  'Show most recent personal messages at top'. Make sure that is clicked.

SteveD:
I looked through the php code and the sort order is hard-coded as ascending so really no way to switch to descending.
One option would be to mirror the conversations list sort order so they both go either up or down.
I'm also not sure how changing the order would affect tagging of new messages and paging, but we could test it out.

If you want I could try that, but no guarantees.

Michael M:
Yeah, it looks like while I have it checked, it doesn't look like it's respecting it. :(

The check box is just to sort the conversation list, not the messages within a conversation.
