Posted By: <b>Eric Pugh</b><p>is there a way to read old threads in the same format we read current threads? <br><br>For example, i am reading up on cobb/cobb back threads, so i did a search, and a bunch of really old great threads came up. Seems though i have to go back and click on each response instead of being able to just read from oldest post to newest post.<br><br>is there a way to read it normally? If not, i guess i can respond to the thread, bringing it to the top, but that would seem uncool. <br><br>any tips would be appreciated - thx
