Question Threaded vs. Linear Display

Don't overlook your User (CP) Control Panel.

In there, under Settings and Options, you can find "edit options" where you can select how this board looks and works for you.

One group selection is "Thread Display Options" where you can set the boards to be linear or threaded.

Linear Mode (Oldest First) - In this mode, posts are displayed chronologically from oldest to newest. Posts are shown in a flat mode so that many posts can be viewed simultaneously.

Linear Mode (Newest First) - This is the same as the above mode, except that posts are ordered in an opposite way (newest first).

Threaded Mode - In this mode, a tree is shown along with every post. This tree allows you to see the relationship each post has to others, in terms of who responded to whom. Only one post is shown at a time.

Hybrid Mode - This mode is a mixture of the linear and threaded modes. The post tree is displayed like in the threaded mode, but multiple posts are displayed simultaneously like in the linear modes.

You'll have to try each to see which works best for you. Also, some of the threads are quite long - don't overlook the page selection box at the lower right corner when reading a thread. -- Harry
