I use several of the Bentley forums. I'm having some issue with the way they work.
In particular, how can I change the order of the posts to show newest first?
For long threads can we shorten the individual posts in the list to just show user and date?
Perhaps I'm just missing a settings page that's right in front of me!
I've asked one of our colleagues involved with forum admin to comments on this.

In the top-right corner of the forum list, there is a button you can click to change the sort order. By default, it should already be showing by date, with the most recent posts at the top.
When you say "newest first", do you mean show new, unanswered posts at the top (above more recent replies to other thread?). On the top-left side, there is a button to filter the posts. You could select "unanswered questions and discussions".

At the moment I do not know of a way to do this. However, for long thread, you will see a "load previous" and "load next" button to display posts above or below the reply that you landed on. There are also options below the original post in a thread - see image below. If you only want to see Answers (for question based threads), click the "Answers" button at the top-right to filter.
If this does not help, can you provide a sketch or more details of what you're looking for and the reason? (to help ensure we understand)

Thanks Marc, Jesse. May not have been clear. I'm wanting to list the posts newest to oldest, not the threads. As an alternate, can the posts be displayed in pages?
