XF 1.2 Post Sort Order

Hello. I know that I can define an order for my nodes (as administrator)

But a user wants to order in ascending sort the posts into all the threads. I searched for the option but I can't find it.

Can, as user, choose the order of posts into the threads or in the whole forum?

Note that they can temporarily change it by clicking one of the things, such as Last Message, on the discussion list. However, that's based on cookies. Once they clear their cookies, it'll reset to the site default.

Yeah, it's the list of threads list but he wants to order the posts list into the threads. I think it can't be done.

Reordering posts within a thread is not possible.
Not possible, or not currently possible? In other words, is there some technical reason for why an extension could not implement this? I'm configuring xenForo to move to from vB shortly, and this is a feature that I would really need. My board has a "specialty" that we tend to recycle old threads, and so, some threads have been around for fifteen years (no kidding!) and have hundreds of pages of content. Hence it makes sense to have the most recent content accessible when a thread is opened as opposed to needing to always click on "last page".

Since this was written a while back - is it possible with XF 1.4 for users to select sort order and have the forum remember it?

Or, AFAIK on global basis, either (I'm talking about the descending chronological sorting of the posts in each thread; it's by default ascending, and there's currently no way to alter it). I'm going to need this in order to move my forum from vB to xF; everything else has been taken care of. So it's my intention to look into this really soon (over next couple of weeks). Initially a global admin setting, then a forum-by-forum admin setting, then allow user to override it. If I get ambitious, I may expand it from thread post-sorting to thread sorting as well (thus giving users the option to override).

But if someone else has something suitable available, please let me know (and save me the effort).

I just had a user request this for threads in one particular forum. Would like to be able to give him the option.
