There are 2 different ways that posts can be displayed:
The linear view displays the posts by date. It is possible to change whether the most recent post appears at the top or the bottom of the list. If the most recent post is at the top of the list, use this icon: to move it to the bottom (resulting in the posts displaying from least recent to most recent). If the least recent post is at the top of the list, use this icon: to move it to the bottom (resulting in the posts displayed from most recent to least recent).
The threaded view displays replies to posts, underneath the post they were replying to. Therefore the posts will appear by date order, other than replies, which will appear out of date order, under the post that they are in reply to.
To view statistics of the forum, click on the statistics icon . This will show you how many posts have been added, who the last poster was, who the top 5 posters are and how many posts each poster has added.
You can also access the edit topic page from the post viewing page, by clicking on this icon in the top right hand corner of the page.
