    Hi,

    I saw in the Forums help that it should be possible to select from the following Thread Display Modes:

    1. Linear Mode (Oldest First)
    2. Linear Mode (Newest First)
    3. Threaded Mode
    4. Hybrid Mode

    However, on the CP I only have 1&2
    Option 3 is exactly what I was hoping for.
    Any idea why I only have 1&2 ?

    Thanks
    Yuval

    i personally like threaded mode and in fact the first version of badminton central forums was in threaded mode. however, threaded mode in the current software is quite confusing thus i have chosen to turn it off. what we have now seems to work well and easy to understand.

    I find it not very comfortable to read long threads in flat mode (linear).
    it takes long to scroll and spread over many pages that need to scroll through.
    I think that the whole idea of forums is hierarchy of posts so it's possible to see who relied to what and not flat like it is now.
    isn't it possible to leave the option to choose threaded view per user ?

    Thanks
