    Hey Admins, please check this out and let me know....I really don't think its just me but I could be wrong.

    Reading more than a few posts I notice that the first post in a thread is at the bottom of the page. This means you have to scroll down to check it out. I've just looked at a really intersting detailing post with lots n lots of pics. This meant I had to scroll down to the first post, the back up to find the beginning and read down to the end. After that, scroll back up to the next reply and down to the end with all the pics.....back up to the next reply and so on and so on.
    Sorry guys, but this is a crazy way of doing it asnd it makes much more sense as in many other forums to have the first post first and then so on from there.

    Can anyone please ched some light onto this?

    Thanks

    Jim

    Hi Jim

    This is nothing new, and can be easily changed:

    Go to your 'user cp'
    Edit options
    Thread Display Options
    Thread Display Mode
    Choose 'Linear - Oldest First

    HTH

    James...you're a top man, much appreciated

    One other thing ( similar problem on one of my sites although not as bad ) there are hundreds of smilies which is good, but it takes forever to load the page as it loads the smilies first, every time which is quite annoying. Is there a fix for this?

    Thanks in advance

    Jim
