Threads Marked as "Answer": Rising to the top of threads, and appear twice....is back. RRS feed

  • Question

  • That old feature that most all disapproved of, allowing threads to be viewed so that "Answers" appear first, and I thought disabled or removed...is back. 
    That mode of viewing caused stuff to be re-ordered and appear out of context, which not surprisingly most all felt was a bad idea. 
    Monday evening evening, which would fall close to or near midnight GMT.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

    The setting "Always Show Answers First On Thread Page" still works and hides the section "Answers" on the top.

    Here's the case for thread view settings:

    1) Flat : "Always Show Answers First On Thread Page" ON: It should be:

    - Date descending
    - If answer and more than one reply exists, show the answer above all replies and in all replies
    - If only reply is the answer, only show answer reply (not duplicate)


    2) Threaded: "Always Show Answers First On Thread Page" ON: It should be:

    - Hierarchy of replies
    - If answer exists and only one reply, show above all replies and in all replies
    - If only reply is the answer only show answer reply

    3) "Always Show Answers First On Thread Page" OFF:

    - No "Answers" section will be shown just "Replies"

    I believe we do have a bug where this condition is not met regardless of the type of view: "If only reply is the answer only show answer reply"

    Other than that "Always Show Answers First On Thread Page" ON or OFF works fine for me.

  • Thanks Don,

    Somebody must be making modifications on the fly, cannot speak for others but the server seems like it has up and down over the past couple of days.  I went back to find a few threads that demonstrated this behavior and they viewed as expected.

    I will keep observing.........
