Sorting messages in forums?

Portland, OR

Hello everyone! Just joined after lurking for a while, and I'm so excited to be part of this great gardeners' community. One question: I have a little trouble finding the latest messages in the forums (or fora, for you fellow English teachers) that I'm following. Is there a way to sort by most recent? Any advice? Thanks!

Good morning Rose, welcome! :)

I have yet to find a way to "sort" the posts in each forum, but I have found that, if you click on the 'Skip to New' clickie at the top of each thread (You'll find clickies, from left to right, "Watch Thread", "Mark as Read" [or 'Unread', respectively], "Print", "Post Reply", and then "Skip to New") it will automatically take you to the most recent post that you've not read yet. Then all you have to do is scroll down to continue reading from there.

I hope this is helpful to you, and sorry I'm late in replying, was out of town for a week.

Happy gardening, and look forward to seeing you around! =)

Oh Ky, thank you, I'd been wondering a few things, (like how to italicize words etc), and the links you provided have answered that, and much more! =) Now, why didn't I go to (read: look for) those links before!? **blush**

You are a GEM! < =D

I just get bored after I've read all my favorite threads and go looking around at what else is on DG, and thought I'd check those out, and they turned out to be pretty helpful. :)
