[FIXED for 7.5.1] 7.5 - Default Sort Field and Direction #223902

In Forum Settings the new default setting for Sort Field and Direction displays Subject / Descending.

My forums, and probably the vast majority of others, has always had the last post at the top of the forum so why is this not the default setting?

I have noticed that when I change the default to Last Post Time / Descending and press Submit Changes, the refreshed page displays the defaults as Last Post Time / Ascending which isn't what I requested.

My other question in connection to 'why has the default sort order changed to subject' is that if I do have to change everything manually back to the required Last Post Time / Descending how can I change all the forums at the same time instead of having to do them all separately?

There is something posted HERE about the sort order is backwards in the control panel.

Thanks Ruben. Still need to find out why the default is set as 'Subject' though when it really should be 'Last Post Time' and if there is a way to alter a global default setting for all forums at the same time.

The default setting being Subject is a bug as well. Need to get that fixed.

yea it looks like the list is just alpha sorted without a default.
Rick is on it though.

Line 203 of admin/viewboard.php currently has this:
Code

if (!$sort_field) $sort_field = "posted";



That, should be this:

Code

if (!$sort_field) $sort_field = "last";

I can't even get it to change. I realized this problem just today and went through and set my entire wine forum to sort (properly) by post date. However they all post ascending. I deliberately went in and set them to descending but it still leaves them at ascending in the public view. So it's not just a control panel "mis-display" in my forum - it won't let me change the order to most recent on top for some of my forums.

Like here -

I have that set to descending but it seems to show ascending anyway.

You'll need to upgrade to 7.5.2 in order to get that fixed. Since the field was only 3 characters in 7.5, 'desc' won't fit in the field so it defaults back to 'asc'.
