Dennis:

a couple of stupid :oops: questions

1. how do I set preferences - such as reading the posts -- instead of oldest being defaul, how do I get newest to be set as default, without having to scroll to the bottom of the first page in each thread?

2. can you explain the poll fields?? Like how to use the poll option -- already tried and it didn't do nothin...

so far I am getting used to the new format.... can be difficult at times but is not too bad,, will get better at it over time... nice job tho! :D

Rudi - #1. I do not see any setting to change the default display to reverse the order of the posting list. (Perhaps in a future update, I'll check the phpBB site, I know they have a wish list a mile long.)

#2. The in the poll fields, you must enter at least two choices for it to work. Enter your question for the poll, then the first answer choice. Then click the "Add Option" button. Then continue to "add" choices until your finished. Next set the number of days to run the poll. Then submit your message.

One other thing, when the message reply list is long (multiple pages), you can click on the last page number in the message heading to take you to the last page where the new replies are located...
