Where the hell is my thread?

Post here to shower the ImageMagick developers with praise or discuss how you could have done a better job if you developed ImageMagick. Or talk about how Photoshop is better than ImageMagick. Even complain about how no one answered your postings in the Users forum. Venting and musings welcomed here.

Where the hell is my thread?

Post by XnTriq » 2017-02-13T21:41:21-07:00

I prefer reading threads in traditional Ascending order — you know, the way 99% of forums around the globe are coded? Because I can't apparently figure out how to set the preference permanently please explain how it's done? Here is what I would like to permanently see:

THREADS
OP/First post on top, proceeding linearly until the most recent reply is on bottom.

FORUM BROWSING
Newest replies to a thread on top.

You people actually read it this way? When you can't even find the thread you just replied to? What's next: the grassy knoll? WTF? :lol:

I still see it at Batch Rotate *ONE* Graphic 44 times and Preserve the Image's Transparency?

It isn't just that, the whole board is whacked! WTF!

Okay, first, when I click on a forum to browse, the thread most recently replied to is supposed to be on top. I can't see it.

Next, when I read a thread, I want the OP's post at the top, and most recent replies at the botton.

Example: I'll post this reply to you. It's in the Kudos and Rants forum right? The thread should be on top, right? It's nowhere.

Get a load of this:
The first post displayed in Kudos and Rants is dated . . .

2009-03-31, Tue 12:04 PM

:shock:

I'm curious why you're running a Discourse forum in a phpBB shell (?) but I need to shut down for the night. I'll follow up tomorrow. There are threads I'd like to read but I cannot read them date flipped this way.

What browser are you using? Perhaps your account is messed up?

If the latter, then either you may need to wait for the site admin to fix (send him a PM or via Contact Us) or create a new account.

P.S. This bulletin board software was upgraded recently. Perhaps in the upgrade your account got messed up. Take that up with the site admin (user magick)

Have you tried clearing the cache in your browser, logging out of IM Discourse Server, restarting your computer and logging back into the IM Discourse server?

I think the clue is in the "Batch rotate thread".

Okay, so what are the current settings?

In my User Control Panel, Board Preferences, Edit display options, setting "Display topic order direction" is set to "Descending" (so most-recent topic is at the top) but "Display post order direction" is set to "Ascending" (so most-recent post is at the bottom).

Okay I think I have this fixed. Flushing Cache & Cookies defninitely helped, thanks (Fred?) but I would just like to verify against another member's settings. I was going to upload a screenshot but I gather that isn't on. Please let me know how you've achieved:
Forum Browse=Most Recent at TOP
In-Thread Reading=(the exact opposite) the OP's first post starting the thread=AT TOP -or- Most Recent at BOTTOM

User Control Panel \Board Preferences \Edit Display Options

Display topics from previous days: All Topics
Display topics ordering by: Post Time
Display topic order direction: Descending

Display posts from previous days: 1 year
Display posts ordering by: Post Time
Display post order direction: Ascending

You have what I have in my User Control Panel \Board Preferences \Edit Display Options. For me that shows the Topics with most recent at the top and for Posts it shows most recent at bottom.

P.S. To post images, you need to upload to some free hosting service such as dropbox.com and put the URL here. This server does not store any images apart from your icon.

I mostly use my own server hosted at Godaddy. But I suggest dropbox. Many others have too much advertising and are hard to use without downloading the adverted product in place of the image. Also some of them do not work well for other than JPG files.
