Hello,
I think sorting by new topics is not a good idea by many reasons, at least for me, and I want to make sorting by answers as a default. I don't want to choose it when register or in preference. I want it to to be Sorting by Answers ALWAYS, even for unregistered users. Of course I mean everyone still could change it to "by topics" but I want default = "by answers"
How can make it?
Help me pls, thank you.

setup_options -> $sortingTopics

And edit this in bb_func_regusr:

if (!isset($sorttopics)) {
$sortTopics1 = 'checked'; $sortTopics0 = '';
}
else {
$sortTopics1 = ($sorttopics==1)?'checked':'';
$sortTopics0 = ($sortTopics1=='checked')?'':'checked';
}


(swap the values)

I have
$sortingTopics=0;

And I haven't really understand how to swap values. Can you please show me?

$sortingTopics=0; already means that they are sorted by Last replies.

if (!isset($sorttopics)) {
$sortTopics1 = ''; $sortTopics0 = 'checked';
}
else {
$sortTopics1 = ($sorttopics==1)?'checked':'';
$sortTopics0 = ($sortTopics1=='checked')?'':'checked';
}

The sort by method is not sticking for my forums. We're having to constantly reset it. Is there way to set this in admin panel?

What do you mean by "reset"?

Look at the setup_options.php, and you'll find here $sortingTopics setting, which probably could help you.

Topics are being sorted by New Topics by default DESPITE the $sortingTopics being set to "0".

So, users are constantly having to reset how topics are sorted to latest replies.

Because registered users should set sorting option in their Preferences which overrides default setting.

Ah ha!!!

I've got a custom situation, where minibb is intergrated with my CMS (expression engine).

Hi Paul!!!

Is there was to get around this, to globally set this for my users?

If you want to set this option to ALL users, then update user_sorttopics field in the database to 0, and change default value to 0.

Ok, I changed the default value to to 0, but what other value am I supposed to change to 0. Is there anther field and if so, what EXACTLY is it's name?

I'm a newbie, be kind :)

There is no another field. user_sorttopics field stores either 0 or 1.

Whoops, not quite finished.

Ok, I've set user_sorttopics to O.

However, some users can STILL log in and the default is sort by new topics. Do they need to reset their cookies/passwords or some such?
