The tree view of the posts in the forums is organized in a way that makes it difficult to retrieve specific posts when there are many.
The posts are not sorted in chronological order but in some other order based on the "replies" sequence. See a sample

It would help that that "tree" view is displayed in three columns, explorer like :
- first column : the tree of posts
- second column : the author of each post
- third column : the time stamp of each post
With the capability to sort (ascending or descending) on the second and/or third columns, just as explorer does.
This would enable to easily retrieve for instance
- the last post(s), which are currently spread in the tree
- the posts from one author

This feature would help in my opinion frequent and intensive users of the forum, like N/A and myself.

Hi Jean,

Unfortunately, the tree functionality for the forums is based on which reply button you click on within the thread. It is, how you have discovered, reply based. We are looking into switching forum applications at a later date.

Leonard,
I was aware that my suggestion required substantial re-coding.
In case you select another forum base, please make sure it complies with my suggestion.
