This started yesterday. The first page of a topic appeared but it was upside down; the newest posts were at the top and the oldest posts were at the bottom.   I know that some argue that this is the way it should be.   I don’t care, myself, but I don’t accept change very well.

Today, during the day, I logged in at another computer and noticed that nothing had changed on that computer.

This evening, when I came home, I logged in and the first page of the topic list was with topics from 5 years ago.   I went to the last page and found the newest topics.   the topic page I went to was still upside down. If this has been reformatted, I don’t like it.

Does anyone know what is going on?   Did something weird happen with my computer or does it come from AWWW?

I don’t know what happened but, after 4 hours, I logged on again and the list of topics are back the way they should be. The list of posts are still listed with the newest at the top but I can more easily adjust to that.

Am I going crazy? If someone did something please tell me a little about it.

That’s happening to me too Dick. I PMed Grant about it. Something just changed, so he must be on it.

Standard forum format is to have the most recent post in a thread at the top, and the most recent threads at the top. But forum software provides options on how things are ordered. I can only guess that during some routine forum upgrade/maintenance those order settings were accidentally changed. No word from Grant yet.

The topic “Thailands royal villa, Chitralada” has Glenn’s as first post, the only topic that mixes up like that. Weird.

Now the wrong order has been fixed. But still cannot edit your latest post.

Put edit back on please ? It’s only fair to afford posters a chance to tidy up the last saved post. After that it’s fair too that the next poster seals the deal for you.

It all should be back to normal now. Not sure why it happened, but in the future, email me! grant@waywordradio.org It’ll speed up the response time.

The ability to edit was never affected, RobertB, as far as I could see.

PS: Private messages in the forum are not an ideal way to notify me of anything.

Hi, Grant,

Interestingly, although your email address is available elsewhere on the site, that method of contact is not listed in your profile.
