Hi Dale,

I'll look into this.

Bye for now,

Brett:

I liked the way the posts under the old forum format were listed chronologically according to the date/time of the original post (i.e., the latest original post was always at the top), regardless of how many folks replied or when.  Under the new format, the posts do not appear to be listed this way.  Is there a setting somewhere that I can change to order the posts as before?

Also, have you considered possibly compiling some or all of the responses to the questions that have been asked into an FAQ page?

TIA.

Bob

Hi Bob,

This was called Threaded View and it is sadly not available on the Tapatalk Forums (or, for that matter, any modern Forums). I am still trying to convince them that it is a legitimate way to view a Forum. If I am successful I will let you know.

An FAQ would be a massive task with more than 2.5 million posts. I don't even know where I could start even if I had the time to do it.

Thanks and bye for now,

Brett

I have the same problem as Dale. Open a post and it sends me to
the bottom or sometimes middle of the page. The while I'm reading
the post the page scrolls up on it's own.

Hi Mike,

I advised Tapatalk yesterday and they are looking into it.

Bye for now,

I hope you do have success with that, Brett.The threaded view on older forums is often overlooked for the immediacy and clear picture of discussion it lends to a forum. Unfortunately these newer forum formats seem to be common and they tend to compartmentalise things more, causing the viewer to have to do more work to see the flow of posts.  

Thanks.

Brett, You have the same description listed for the Airfix Group Build page and the 1/72 scale page. They both read Forums for 1/72 scale models.

Frank,

Getting used to the new forum functions has been a bit of a challenge for an electronically challenged old goat like me. Best I can figure out is to check the posting times in the right hand column to see if it is a post from the current day, or one from a previous day. It’s nice not to have a response to a post from a couple of days back burried where no one will see it. But, I agree with you. It can be a bit confusing to sort responses to previous posts out from original posts of the current day

HTH
