Not sure if this is the right place to post this request, but here goes. I'm wondering if it would be possible to include the date of the original post in the list that comes up when you click on "New Posts"? Another forum I'm on does this, and it really helps to know when the original was written.

Sometimes very old posts take on a whole new life because people search for something, read the first one without noticing the date, and then start commenting. This puts it into the New Posts sort and the cycle continues. Hope this is making sense. As things are now, the only date shown is that of the latest post, shown in the column. In my other forum, the date of the original is shown in the Thread/Thread Starter column, after the member's name.

On this older VBulletin board I do not see an easy setting adjustment for adding such a column. If you can PM me the link to your other forum and let me see if it is a VBulletin board and if so what version it might be. If it is similair to this board I'll send this on to Admin (Yung) and see if he knows more of this or what may be involved here.

Here is one, a Cavalier site: Cavalier Chat

I'll look at my others and see if they do the same.

Added: here's another site that does the same: http://www.cavaliertalk.com/forums/s...searchid=91900

Thanks for considering!

Ok this could be why I may not see it an option for here. The top site is a version Version 4.0.7 and the bottom one is Version 4.1.11 We are a much older version of only 3.8.5
I am guessing these new versions have more options to work with.
