Hey Guys

I may be being a total idiot but how do i get back to the more normal and traditional single thread view of post-reply-reply-reply etc for a forum? I seem to have somehow moved to lots of sub-threads and replies for a single question and its confusing my old linear brain.

I tried looking in the settings/control panel but can't find it and I REALLY don't like this view at all.



thanks in advance!

I think some inbound Google links are selecting that view, I will disable it altogether I think!

Mine is still showing up in that stupid threaded view, and there's nothing under that options menu?

Me also. Options shown include: "Track this topic", "Email this topic", "Print this topic", "Download this topic" and "Subscribe to this forum". "Print this topic" is something like I used to get, however it does not remember this setting.

Also set "My Controls -Options - Board Settings - Number of posts to show for each topic page" to 40, but this seems to get ignored.

Have I missed something?

Paul (MPV): What option did you remove, was it the ablility to set the threaded/unthreaded view in a topic, if so it looks lik some of us a stuck in threaded view with now way out B)
