I'm having some difficulty keeping the order of topics orderly. I'm using threads for online seminars and I would like to be able to keep the topics in a specific order. For example:

Topic #1: Introduction to the seminar
Topic #2: First week's assignment and discussion
Topic #3: Second week's assignment and discussion
etc, etc.

I thouht that the topics would be listed in the order in which I posted them with the only variable being whether someone has chosen to display them in ascending or descending dates. Howver, this doesn't seem to be happening.

Can you suggest how to best deal with this problem?

Thanking you in advance,
Dan Hill

If you've got the "dateslip" option enabled in the config file, then they will be reshuffled by reply date vs. post date. If you turn dateslip off, they will remain in order by the original post date.

Also note - any changes that you make to the theme file probably won't affect your own view. Changes to the theme file apply to anonymous users and new users from that point on. Existing users (including yourself) will need to adjust their display prefs in My Home. <img src="https://www.ubbcentral.com/boards/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Dateslip is off. Can't figure out what else might be causing the problem.

Are they constantly changing order as people reply to them?

It's odder than that. The first post of the forum sticks at the bottom whether or not I set the option for descending or ascending date.

Thanks,
Dan
