Forums message order

Maybe I'm missing something, but is there any way to sort the forums in, say, last message order instead of random? Also related I suppose, is there a way to search the forums and have the results display in an order that makes sense, instead of randomly from the last several years? If this exists, I've been unable to find it.

Hi Scott,

Regarding your first question - I'm not sure I understand. Each forum section is sorted by last posted, with the exception of stickied threads. You can also use the Community > Recent Topics feature to view all the latest posts from all forums.

Regarding your second request - we are aware of this issue and are planning on changing this functionality in the future.

Thanks for the feedback,
