I have a technical question about the new format...

I have to keep scrolling down to find messages that have been recently replied to which is annoying, I am sure those with new replies used to show at the top - at least I am pretty sure they did. I have tried different settings on my preferences, but I only ended up with weird changes, like having all the messages from as far back as 2003 appear at the top - not quite what I was aiming for!

Anyone have any ideas about what I am doing wrong, or something else I can try?

Hmmm...I thought it was the entry under the General tab in your board preferences.  I seem to be seeing them in the right order, so this post by you was higher than all the others except  the technical update message, I don't know why that one keeps being displayed first.  However, it is still telling me my e-mail address is already taken, and I know that one is being worked on...

I'm glad you asked because I have the same question - and had the same results

I tried rearranging things in there, but it didn't help. I also tried changing the sort order to "newest-oldest" but all that happened then was all the replies within a thread start with the newest, which makes for a great deal of confusion because I am basically reading everything backwards ie: Molly's reply to your reply now shows up ahead of your reply, so I have to scroll down to see what you said first...

OK - I went back to edit my preferences again to have another crack at this, and in General I clicked "sort topics by most recent post" or something like that. I have tried this before without result, but this time it seems to have worked, and now be displaying the topic with the most recent post at the top (apart from that tech update one that seems to be stuck at the top) I have gone away from the board and come back, and so far it's still working. Fingers crossed it stays that way :)

I've tried that Carole, but keep getting the message that my email address is already taken, I think that is something that iVillage is looking into.  In the meantime, I'll just keep scrolling and hope that I don't miss anything.  Wink

Nefh mentioned she was having that problem too. I had another weird thing happen this morning, I swear I read this message from you before I went to bed last night, but now it is listed as being posted 3 hours ago - after Tracy posted her reply to you - weirder and weirder!
