Yes, use the "custom" tab.

Thanx, I've tried that but I still get every thread

Here's how I do it:

If you used to click “filter” and view all new deals on the old forum, you can do that here too. You just have to customise it. So, from the home page, click “customise your settings” on the right hand side. In the forums list, select “deals” and click the plus symbol. You can also add the vouchers and freebies if you wish, this will show you the same deals as the old forum front page. Or customise it however you want.

Leave all the check boxes at their defaults, excepting perhaps the “temperature threshold” – you could change this to zero. Set your viewing preferences to “new” and click save at the bottom of the page. To view your results, click the “custom” tab at the top. Voila! All new deals in reverse chronological order!

Unfortunately not. Either the datestamps on the deals are wrong or they are not being sorted in reverse order, but hopefully this bug is at the top of the bug-fix list

Are you certain you set it exactly as I specified above? Sorry to ask again, but it works just fine here.

Many thanks for that!

Just two questions

1. I can hardly read what I'm writting now and it's not down to old age.
2. How do I sort out the chronological order. I selected 'new', but it appears completely random!

At least I can now only see the bits of the forum I wanted which is a relief after the last day or so.

Not quite sure what you mean. If you have the custom thing set up above exactly as I specified, then it shows all in your custom tab.

How do I post a screen grab on here?

For example, the top few posts read 8 mins, 17 mins, 20 mins, 15, 28, 52, 14, 2 !

I've got the settings also set to 'simple view' and sort by 'new'.

Cheers for your help!

PS. I know it's a sore point, but now I'm starting to be able to use the site again, my eyes are getting very sore reading it! Please could they go easy on the bright white!

They were in order of thread start date, if i remember correctly. The dates you are seeing are of the replies to those, so are obviously not going to be in any sort of order.
