Default Mixed up posts

Am I missing something? When I looked at the posts today, the sequence was random. I reset my options to see newest post first. No difference. When I open a thread, the posts are mixed up, 2010,2007,2012,2008 etc etc.
Help......

Default Trying to get sold sign in Title

Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? I am trying to change the title of my post to reflect that my item has been sold. I have followed these steps:
Go to the post and click on edit post
Click on Advanced
Go to the Title and type in the changes
Click on Submit changes.

When I do this, the changes appear in my post after someone has clicked on it. But they do not appear on the page where all the items are listed for sale before someone clicks on it. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help you can give me. This is driving me crazy.

Prior to the new software, when I logged into the forum using my cell phone and the mobile app, it would show me a list of new threads, or old threads with new replies. Since the new software has been deployed, all of the threads are listed - even if I've already read all of the posts for a thread.

I can't seem to find a way to list only threads with unread posts.

Is that possible anymore?

If you can do these three things you are off and running. Take your time and explore all the new features of TOTV little by little. It's really not that different than the old software. Some things have moved around and changed but the basic forum functions the same way.

1. Create a new thread
2. Reply to a post
3. Save your reply.


Spell Checker - You will need to install iSpell. Click on the spell check button to install. After it is installed it will pull up a spell check window. Also works on any web page or form.

You do know that it has been 5 years since the software change? This thread started after a big change in September of 08. Has your problem started much more recently than that?

Then my issue is not related to the software, sine I log in a couple times a week.

Actually, I found a switch to list newer posts first. I clicked it, so let's see if that will make a difference.
