Selecting Descending as opposed to Ascending

Post by brothers »

Some threads have the most recent posts at the top, and some at the bottom. I see I have a choice at the end of every topic. I prefer Descending in most cases, but Ascending in a few others. I have noticed that most threads will appear to follow my selection, but the next time I open the thread the site doesn't comply with my choice to change to Descending. Here's my question - is there a system-wide administrative control over this function, or is there something I can do that will allow me to make the call and have it be binding on my selected threads as they appear on my screen until such time as I change back? As usual, it's most likely a simple operator error in my case.

User Control Panel > Board Preferences > Edit Display Options > Display Topic Order Direction > set to Descending, The section just below that pertains to New Posts, and I keep that set to Ascending so newest are on top.
