    Newbie question here regarding the post layout on threads. I notice that the first post in a thread is on the bottom of the page not the top. I will confess to being confused (it's easily done :) ) as I'm used to the OP being at the top. Is there anyway I can rearrange the threads so the first post is at the top?

    Thanks in advance,
    Malc.

      Go to the "Thread Display" and you can change how it appears. I know 'cause I like mine set out in an odd way!

      Hope this helps,
