Why would one want to do this? I am browsing 1000s of forums for 7 years now and never in a single instance did I find it necessary to sort the topic list by anything other than their data of latest post.

The meaning is at vi would like to avoid dobble topics. Normaly we can remember the discussion or information we shared, but when we want to look for it it, it often is difficult for the so many pages you have to go through.

In the topic selv it is possible, but in the boards its not possible as far as we can see.

I don't see the use either, but anyway as noted before it'll be only a style change (just add a link/graphic with the right url and you are done...so no code changes are needed) :mrgreen:

You can use "Search". I think it was made for finding things for you.
You can also bookmark topics you think you will need in the future.*

bookmarking and putting a watch on them as well is a nice thing...

Search is your friend, sorting a huge site would be about as bad as going through the topics page-by-page and posts one-by-one, so searching would be better IMO if you cannot recall where a topic or post is "hidden"...
