XF 1.2 Show recent posts first


Well-known member
Where is the setting that by default for all users show recent posts first in thread view (instead of oldest posts first). I cannot find the setting? :(

There is no such setting.
There is not? No wonder I could not find it. Maybe it is from vb i remember it. I am bit annoyed that thread discussions linked to from resource managers always go to first post in threads, which can be very old. That is not best solution for my new project.

Change the template so that the discussion tab goes to the first unread post.

Template: resource_view_tabs

<a href="{xen:link threads, $thread}">{xen:phrase discussion}</a>
Replace with:
<a href="{xen:link threads/unread, $thread}">{xen:phrase discussion}</a>
Admittedly, this will only work for registered members. For guests or someone who hasn't viewed the thread before it will still go to the first post on the first page.
