New Design thread order.... good, but message numbers wrong

I really like that in the new design, the threads appear in reverse chronological order so that you don't need to go through pages to get the last posts... but, can the get the Message numbers to start with the original post rather than the last?

Unfortunately no, this is part of the software design.

That's a shame... although I just realised I can click on the message number to give a link directly to a post

New Design thread order.... Bad!

I have to say I really dislike the reverse thread order. Why would I want to see the answer before I read the question? (I also don't turn to the last page in a detective novel to find out who did it before reading the story chapter by chapter, in reverse). Could there not be a user selectable default for this? I can see how to reverse individual threads but I can't see a global setting.

You can change it by going to My Profile and select Preferences.  Select Oldest to Newest/Date Ascending under Linear Format Settings.

You saved me Smiley Wink

Seriously, I don't understand how we could like the "newest > oldest" sort. It is definitely non-logical for me...
Hopefully, this option exists Smiley Very Happy

Re: New Design thread order.... Bad!

For those of use doing support, it's easier to get the last few posts in a long thread... I guess this is the default so users who've asked question go to the last post (usually the answer)
