How can I sort the Events forum by the date of the event?
« on: February 06, 2011, 02:18:23 am »
As you may have noticed, the forums sort themselves by the most recent to oldest topics.  This is good in the discussion forum, but when you want to look up dates and they are out of order in the Events forum, it can be a pain.

The subject lines for events are entered such that it is always prefixed by the date that it is occurring.  As such, the simple solution is to click on the word Subject.  This will sort it by Subject in ascending order.  You can also click Subject a second time to sort it in descending order.

Hopefully this will make it easier for you to see what events are just past and which are coming up.

The credit for the suggestion to list event dates first in the subject, in order to allow for easy sorting, goes to Lindil!  Thank you for taking the time to suggest ways make the forum easier to use.
