Hello, apparently the setting for how the posts show under each topic was not how most people prefer it. I thought I had it set to show "oldest first" meaning the original post is first and new replies are at the end, (so you can read down not up) But no, I had it backwards.... So I ran a query to change everyone to what would normally be considered "correct"
IF you prefer to have new posts at the top.. and read backwards... go into your User CP, select options, and change to the following:
Thread Display Mode:
Linear - Oldest First
Hope this helps some of you out!! let me know if you have any questions.
