Thanks Judy,

I have settled for the Hybrid setting, you get the best of both worlds with that one.

You get a tree at the top, so you can see all the new posts, and all posts listed neatly below, so they can be followed nicely.

The only other options I can see,

1: Maybe do away with the quick reply function, and use the quote button to reply to someone further up the thread. This should put all new messages on the end.
2: use different forum software, such as the free phpBB see here http://www.phpbb.com/index.php

3: Stick with it, better as you get used to it.

Tested extensively and rejected. Among other things, phpBB relies on a motley collection of third-party “mods” — some of which conflict with each other — to add features that are built into this software.

We found this forum program to be more flexible, more stable, and more secure. We just have to learn its odd little ways, and we still have plans to do some customizing that may make it easier to live with in the future.

It wouldn't work anyway round Manningtree or anywhere along the Stour: you've got to have plenty of low-lying land near the sea.

I'm active in a forum that uses phpBB. It's very simple to use, but there is no threading, just sorting by date.

I'll get used to what we have here.<g>
