Newest post first?
« on: April 28, 2019, 01:43:05 PM »

I searched this forum for an answer to this question, but didn't find any answer:

"Is it possible to show the newest post as first item?"

If I want to see the newest post I have to go to the last page and to scroll to the end of a theme. This is uncomfortable as the newest is what I'm interested in most.

Some answers say, that SMF takes PostID as a sorting criterium. This will work for me, if I can sort the other way round (descending instead of ascending).

Any help?
