Post subject:  Sort by Date

Hi,

First day on the site, and it looks real interesting.

I am wondering if there is a way to sort the posts by date. I can see the most recent post, but what about the initial post?

I am searching the topics, find one I like, and then realize it started in 2007. It doesn't seem helpful to reply to a topic from 3 years ago. Or is it?

Thanks for the input,

Actually, no. I don't believe you can sort by original post with this software but I'll look and see if there is an update for something like that.

And, yes. I'm sure it's still helpful to post to something old. Maybe the original poster won't be around to see it, but it brings it back to light for the rest of us that are reading it now.

The MES forum isn't what you would call "hopping" but everything seems to be pretty on target for the site and worth opening and reading (even if it is from 2006.) Also, it seems more people would rather respond than start new threads. So, that might be why it doesn't take a lot of scrolling to get to a post from 2007.

Anyway, I'll look into a better sort or search option and welcome to the forums!
