| Can't get display mode to stay on "Newest first"
For years I have been content with the display mode "Oldest first" (i.e. display the oldest post first in a thread). But now I have decided that I want to change it to "Newest first" on all threads.
I can change it by selecting "Newest first" from the dropdown box at the bottom of each page for a given thread, and it does indeed change the mode. Then I exit the thread by clicking on the "Go" by the "Jump to" dropdown. But then when I go back to that thread, the display mode has been reset to "Oldest first"!
How do I get the display mode to remain "Newest first"? And wouldn't it be possible to have a way to set it for the entire site, so that I don't have to change it on each thread?
