 Description   

From my email:

I am using the web based forum mainly because replies are immediately visible.
If you use a mail client, like H sometimes does, it takes a while
before the replies are visible on the forum. However, it seems I cannot change
the threaded view to e.g. a flat list of chronologically ordered posts and it
is driving me crazy.

Maybe I am doing something wrong, but it is very hard to figure out which ones
are the most recent posts. For example, go to the phoneME Advanced forum

http://www.java.net/forums/mobile-embedded/phone-me/phoneme-advanced-software

And try to figure out the last post in the WINCE501bException thread.

Clicking on the user name who last sent a message does not work. If you click
on the WINCE501bException link, you end up at the top of page 1 of the thread.
If you click on [Last post] in the top bar at the right, you definitely do not
get the last post.

Now try to find the last but one post. Is it on page 1 or page 2? Your guess
is as good as mine.

Can I change the view somehow?

We are currently reviewing this issue and it may be because of the delay in processing the posts from the mailing list.

This is a complex thread, but the last post appears to be showing correctly at the top of the thread. The [last post] definitely isn't working correctly, so changing this issue to a bug in the [last post] link, keeping as major.
