Tom,

Currently 7knots shows position reports based upon the date that they were created or edited. I suppose that works well if you submit posts in as they occur and/or don't edit them. However, when you edit large numbers ofposts, such as I just did, current posts get shuffled way down the list.

I was thinking that it would be nice if you had a cookie which would specify how posts are to be viewed. Users could select which method that they wanted. The default would be the current display.

Thanks, Geoff. Will try to include your suggestion in the next overhaul.

Tom, thanks for considering it. I was thinking that if your database had log date, created date and modified date that you could specify in the cookie which field you wanted to sort on and what sort order. Of course that's easy for me to say as I don't have to do the programming! :-) -- Geoff
