Thanks for answering this @trevor 🙂
:squirrel: It had my name written all over it.
Just committed https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/commit/7610c11cd1b9de53ce185227ab80f86d55d3bd69, this is a pretty big change even though it's just ~300 lines of code. It changes how we store the main post so that alternative sorting works.
If anyone decides to upgrade please make a backup of your database just incase something goes wrong, I have tested it on this forums dataset and it seemed OK but you never know :). Will do more testing as we get closer to 0.5.0.
There are 3 options to sort oldest to newest, newest to oldest and most votes. The sorting can be changed from a dropdown in the bar below the main post and it is saved as a user setting. The admin can also select a default setting from the ACP.
Let us know if you encouter any bugs.
Awesome! Is this on mobile too? Can't find it.
@zenkamal it is when logged in. You can set the default in admin if you like a specific one.
