New Posts, What's New, Latest Activity - what's the difference?

New Posts is a view which shows you the latest posts by anyone (unless they are on ignore) within the forum. On a desktop it is accessed by clicking on the down arrow to the right of What's New in the main navigation. On a mobile it os accessed via the lightening symbol that sits between the notifications bell and the search magnifying glass, top right of your mobile screen.

If you click the tab itself then you will get a page that shows you not only the latest posts but also the latest posts on people's profiles (scroll down next time, it's there)

Latest Activity will list ALL recent activity, not just posts but reactions to posts as well.

Where there are threads you are following, either because the system has automatically put the thread on watch for you because you posted in that thread or you have manually selected 'watch' then you will receive notifications of these by virtue of a number next to the notification bell. Where someone has reacted to one of your posts you will also receive a notification of that via the bell.

One other aspect you may not be aware of:

News Feed - If you decide to 'follow' someone (selectable via that persons profile) then everything that person does on the forum will appear in your News Feed; any posts, any thread starts, any reactions to others posts.

Everything else is, I believe, self explanatory but if not then ask the question below.

Hiya, is there a way to reverse the way that the posts appear in the each thread, , ie to make the newest ones appear at the top (and not the first).
?

The newest posts in each thread should be at the top 🤔 where are they not?
