I will NOT use the forum sorted in this manner. If FF can solve the issue, I will switch to FF and keep my preferred sort.
And continue to use permalinks.
There's the answer...
Thread Display Mode
Here you can choose the display mode for threads. For a full explanation of the modes, please view this help page
Linear - Oldest First
Linear - Newest First
Therefore, the Newest posts are at the End of the thread.
Obviously, the URL's 'page_count' and 'msge_nbr' is not recomputed
for the 'other' guy,
i.e., the one who uses the other way:
It just plops user at Page 1, FIRST message
Could take a poll, with test URLs from each "sort method".
It doesn't seem to be a problem with the "Permalink" per se.
The "upchucked rule" seems to be:
'It works right IFF if you have the same sort order as the OP, else Page 1'.
