While this was written specifically for the Introductions forum, it is applicable for the other forums as well. The default listing of threads on the forum index pages is by date of the last reply in a thread, newest first. However, the arrangement can be changed as an aid to locating a particular thread. This would be useful in the Introductions forum to see an alphabetical listing of names. When not doing a search, I would recommend going back to the default so that new threads are not missed.

The viewing order can be arranged by clicking on the column heading, for example, thread TITLE as shown below.

The first click on TITLE will arrange the threads in reverse alphabetical order as shown below. The small arrow will be pointing down.

The next click on TITLE will arrange the threads in normal alphabetical order as shown below. The small arrow will be pointing up.

Likewise, you can click on other column headings to get different arrangements.

Finally, to return to the default display order, click on the last column heading, LAST MESSAGE as shown below. The small arrow should be pointing down. If it is point up, click the heading once again.
