Why aren't any of my listing in date order?

Every time I go to a forum, or do a search, none of the results are in date order, they are just random, which is no good when I want to find the latest deals. Does anyone know if there is anyway I can change it? I have tried customising it but it isnt working.

that is what the tabs at top are for

discussed - is for post with newest replies
new - is for newest threads, i think
hot - is for hottest deals
#2
But even when I press on the tabs they are stil listed i na random date order.

I have the same problem. Unless posts are shown in date order, I can't trust what I'm seeing. How many pages do I scroll through to look for the most recent posts??

Also, there's one new thread that has 2 replies but shows 0 views. How is that possible?!?

I do like the new look of the site and performance is much improved, but this last little tweak needs to be fixed.

what is listed in a random order, sorry i dont know what you mean, each of the above tabs list them in a different order, which order do you want them listed in?
#5
If I go to any of the tabs, the colum marked "Last Post" is in random time order, not the most recent post at the top (ie the top post might show 1min ago, and one further down says 5 seconds ago. This happens on whatever tab I press, ie Hot, New or Discussed.

Are you in IE6 by any chance, i am and see that all the time, it takes forever to move up, usually for me about 2/3 minutes

Hmm they do appear to be jumbled in the Discussed tab. Wierd as they have benn ok for the last few days for me....

Im not entirely sure about this, maybe Admin could confirm. But it seems that the last post date is updated periodically. Could be in an effort to increase performance!?

I find that too. Sometimes the latest post is not at the top:?

This only happens to me when I've just posted and I go back to the forum to look at other threads, it's only for things posted within the last mintue or two tho. Nothing major.

Anything posted in the last minute or so might not be at the top but a simple refresh puts most of them right, who cares if you have to wait a minute or so for it to get to the top? If it's a conversation that's going on at the time then it'll be in the top 10 threads or so anyway so you can see how long ago the last post was.

It isnt just a simple refresh at all, i can sit refreshing for up to 3/4/5 minutes before it falls into order, and yes i agree bejimoron its something little, but add it to the other 300 something little glitches and it pisses you off, a bit like a hundred members "moaning"

The top few are in a different order but they tell you the time so you can see anyway, who cares???

well said sassie. I have used the discussed button now and still out of order. beji moron is annoying me more than this as he is belittling others problems and not seeing anyones point. What a wind up merchant.:x

Also the site is very slow and if there was a misprice i think the seller would perhaps notice it before the page loads.

who cares about what? this little minor problem, or the other 300 minor little problems? This site should never have gone live and to be perfectly honest they should be sorting out the bigger issues here, rather than asking people what they want adding to a site that aint even running as it should be, fix the problems before adding more

@sassie: is that actually how the site looks on your screen? With horizontal scrolling!?

Just to prove the point that it does matter,

I was interested in reading posts in the 'The site is unusable' thread. Now, at work I have my browser in a smaller window. As you can see from the screenshot below... If I didnt bother scrolling down the page a little bit, I wouldnt have noticed the latest reply in the thread I was interested in viewing:

http://xs222.xs.to/xs222/07512/1423hb4hkwr1.JPG

The thread with the newest post is 10th in the list. So I class that as a problem.

Unless its my fault for not having my browser full screen...

How to fix:

Either put your browser full screen.

Or refresh, within a minute or so it'll be near the top.

Or use the update so kindly made by Jaybird, would fit much more on the same size screen.
