Hi:

I'm new to wpForo, and would like to set up my Forum so that new posts on a single thread are always added at the bottom. This way a new reader can read the whole story top to bottom. How do I do this?  Currently my new posts appear on top.... reversed to what I want!

Thanks

Hi tarmstrong,

I'm sorry but there is no option to change the order. We may take this under consideration in future version releases.

I really need this feature as well.
I'd like to be able to set a particular thread to show latest posts first.

Is there anyway for us to do it manually?

This is the new way to show replies/posts in reversed order. So the new replies will be on the top, right after the first post of the topic. You should put this code to the current active WordPress theme functions.php file:

add_filter('wpforo_post_list_args', function ($args){
if(!empty($args)){
$args['orderby'] = '`is_first_post` DESC, `created` DESC, `postid` DESC';
}
return $args;
});

That would be a great option! I use this forum for learning process and such a sequence is often needed. However, it seems to me that this option should be configured individually for each forum.
