I'm not a licence holder so cannot reply directly to Eliteoomph's post about getting the thread order to list alphabetically. It occurred to me there might be a simple way of doing this. When you change the order of posts to A-Z by the title, "?order=title" is added to the URL. So is it not possible with a template edit in the forum view page, to add a conditional to just after the link to the forum's thread view, if forum ID = X add "?order=title" to the link? Where X is the forum you want the default listing to be A-Z? Or add "?order=title&direction=asc" for the other direction?
