I hit the search bar but couldn't find an answer:

Is it possible to change the order of topics in a given thread?

Example: I've created some sticky threads as we prep to launch this to our community but want those posts to follow a certain order. Besides deleting and writing them in reverse order, can one manually move them to re-order?

Thanks in advance.

Hi mbhwhitney,

there is no options to change topic order. It sorted by created date descendants. On topic lists page, all Sticky topics are listed on top of other topics (but not on forum page's recent topics section).

Is the topic date stored in a single table or in multiple places? Which table would one edit with a DB editor?

Thanks Rob. I guess a 'change date' feature would allow for re-ordering? Any chance of that showing up in an update?

Sure, topic date is stored in _wpforo_topic table with all topic data, but topic posts are stored in _wpforo_posts table with post dates.

Here is a custom function which may hep to sort sticky topics:
