Just an update. The Member Map and Resources links are back in the main nav. Ben is working on restoring the Gallery information we lost. And the ads are back :P

Nope not stupid, observant actually :) Yes, that is gone as well for now.


any chance it could be brought back... please... ? I tried the outline mode, but then you have to click for each message and it is hard to follow the whole discussion then...

That feature was a major modification I made to the code in a number of different places (and didn't always work), which means that anytime there is an upgrade to the site's software I need to remodify a bunch of files. This is what I am trying to avoid now going forward. I will look for other solutions as well.

Am I stupid, or is the option to sort things old>new missing/lost?


I did find a combo box under the My Controls -> Edit Profile Information link to change oldest to newest or vice versa. So far no effect. I always prefer to have the original topic first and the newest on the bottom. My display is reversed. No biggie...

I used that custom field to control my modified code, but since the code is gone that field has no effect.

Now it all makes sense. :)

I can certainly understand why you want to keep the site as standard as possible. The mods can be difficult to integrate with the updates from IPB.

possible to change the way the posts are viewed?

I prefer the first post to be the original post that started the thread. when it's backwards, i have to scroll down or jump a few pages to read what the thread starter posted.

Frax asked that same question here last week, and I too prefer that order, but it's not universal. See my answer here: http://www.cartotalk...&...post&p=7419

Is there a way to do the "old to new" style yet?
