        Sorry, I couldn’t find where to write this..
        There must be some bug with the posts sorting order.
        When I use the text form at the end of pages, my post ends up in a random positions.
        Can you please fix this? It’s quite unconvenient.

        Example:

        Audio stuttering after updates: latency caused by network adapter?

        My last posts have been #337474 and #343198 , but they both appeared before #311972 , which is about 2 months old! And there are many other cases.

        Interesting…

        I ran a test post in the same thread, and the same thing happened. Will check through other threads. Not aware of any reason for it, at this point… but can confirm the behavior.

        Threading has been fixed. The problem was the result of a reply having been trashed after it had been replied to, and can be time-consuming to locate.

          Ah, there’s another issue I think.
          If I click “reply” to a post, the new one is created at the correct sub-level.
          If I, instead, click “quote” (aka reply with quote), it goes to the main level.
          Is this by design? It doesn’t seem correct.

          Also a question:
          is there a way to see a list of your own threads and posts?
          It’s a convenient feature usually present in every forum, but I can’t find it here.

            Click “reply” first. Then scroll back up to the post you want to reply to. Highlight the part of the post you want to quote. Then click “quote.” Clicking “quote” without highlighting quotes the whole post.
