    Just a quick question. Is there any way to set the forums up so that when you open a thread it shows the latest post first instead of having to go to the last page? Most boards have it, so I'm sure I'm just missing something. Thanks in advance.

    Aside from Sticky Posts, the most recent post is always at the top of the list. It all depends on the activity of the forum to how long they stay at the top of the list, or even on the same page.

    I must have worded my question wrong. I want to change the original reply in a thread to the bottom and the newest reply to the top.....not sure if it makes sense? If not its no big deal i can live without.

    I Found It, If you go to User Control Panel / Edit Options / Its in there under thread display options

    Are there instructions or videos showing how to use this board? I would not consider a post from mid-December an active post.
