When topic threads get long, it would be a much better experience if the new messages loaded at the thread’s top, so as to not have participants scrolling all the way to the thread’s bottom to respond.
Can’t find anything on this within the Community board or this forum’s settings.
You can, after a little practice, tap & hold to the right of the scroll bar then drag the scroll marker to the bottom of the thread. It’s not a brilliant method & a little fiddly but does work, as far as I know there’s no sort option unfortunately.
If one opens an older thread for the very first time, it’s shown from the first post on.
If checking back with a thread, it’s shown from the last post you’ve left it from.
So far, that’s perfectly logical to my thinking, as you can follow the exchange and more likely add meaningful content.
What doesn’t make sense to me, is it always jumping to the latest post, as you seem to suggest, which would rather encourage posters to just skip the exchange and drop their input, likely being out of context - not that that’s not happening anyways…
