Order the survey posts in chronological order! RECOMMENDED

Postby dabbott » Tue Aug 11, 2015 10:56 am

Hi all,

I tweaked how we post the surveys so that you can order the survey posts in the forum by the date they are scheduled for. I think this has few advantages. First it's just less confusing as the order stays constant, and doesn't change every time someone posts a reply. Second it's in chronological order with the most important items, the ones coming up next, always at the top of the list. Lastly it divides up all the time sensitive items (surveys and events) from all the posts about general RCCA stuff which will appear at the bottom of the list. Note: you must changes your user preferences to display the posts in this order.

Here is how you do it:
Click "User Control Panel" in the upper right corner of this page.
Then click "Board Preferences" under the Options menu on left side of the page to expand that section.
Then just underneath that click "Edit Display Options" in the Board Preference section.
Then change "Display topics ordering by:" to "Subject"
and "Display topic order direction:" to " Ascending"
Click submit and you are all done.

If you just want to see what it looks like and not permanently change your settings, you can do so my going to the bottom of the Nor/Cen California forum and in the bar after the last post where it says "sort by" change the first field to "Subject" and the second field to "Ascending" and click "Go".

If you don't want to change how the Forum is ordered, you don't have to do anything. But I recommend giving it a try, I think you'll like it.

Shoot! I just realized it doesn't work once you hit October as it sorts 10 before 9. I'll try to figure something out...

Bumping this back up to the top for folks who haven't done it.
