Default How to set post displaying options

TO SET THE WAY THAT POSTS ARE DISPLAYED IN A THREAD

IN THE TOP TOOL BAR ON THE FORUMS HOMEPAGE, ON THE FAR LEFT CLICK ON USER CP, THIS WILL OPEN YOUR CONTROL PANEL

SCROLL DOWN TO SETTINGS AND OPTIONS AND CLICK ON EDIT OPTIONS

ON THE RIGHT SCROLL DOWN TO THREAD DISPLAY OPTIONS

UNDER THREAD DISPLAY OPTIONS, CHOOSE YOUR DESIRED SETTING

SCROLL TO THE VERY BOTTOM AND CLICK ON SAVE CHANGES



When viewing a thread, you will be able to view the thread from a choice of four modes.

Linear Mode (Oldest First) - In this mode, posts are displayed chronologically from oldest to newest. Posts are shown in a flat mode so that many posts can be viewed simultaneously. This is the default mode of the forum

Linear Mode (Newest First) - This is the same as the above mode, except that posts are ordered in an opposite way (newest first).

Threaded Mode - In this mode, a tree is shown along with every post. This tree allows you to see the relationship each post has to others, in terms of who responded to whom. Only one post is shown at a time.

Hybrid Mode - This mode is a mixture of the linear and threaded modes. The post tree is displayed like in the threaded mode, but multiple posts are displayed simultaneously like in the linear modes.
