    When I click on a thread, I always get the latest post first. Is there a way to reverse this so I get the original post first?

    I've never looked for such a setting, as this is how I prefer mine to be seen. If available, it would likely be in your personal profile. Try looking at the various options there. Maybe under a 'preference' type heading.

    Gary, do you mean that the thread is shown with the most recent post at the top, or that you are taken to end of the thread? I don't think there is a setting for the former, but the default behavior is to go to the first unread post. This happens if you click on the thread's title. To go to the first post, click on the creation date of the thread (under the title)

    Try this: you are probably doing like most of us, clicking on the thread title. This will indeed take you to the first unread (by you) post in the thread. If you look directly below the thread title you should see a date; clicking on this will take you to the first post in the thread.

    Interesting. When I click on a thread in the "New posts" column on the right (where there is no date listed under the title), it takes me to the most current post. When I click on a thread title in one of the forums, it takes me to the original post first. There is no option for changing this in preferences. But now I understand and everything is ok. Thanks a bunch Guys!

    Even more interesting. Joe Fugate says that this problem surfaced recently and that it is a bug in browsers. Updates for most browsers are being issued that fix it, but not for IE, cause MS no longer supports it. I use firefox, so I'm ok.
