Alex Crome.CS 2008.5 Documentation

(formally Sort Threads By Group Forum Sort Order Query Implementation)

This control changes the order in which results for a thread list are obtained.  This and some inline code magic can make for an improved Active Topics / Unanswered Posts / Unread Posts / My Discussions page, grouping results into individual forums and groups.

A live example of this is available at

N.B. it is a known limitation that this doesn’t work with multiple levels of sub forums.  These can be worked around by modifying the SortOrder property of sub forums directly in the cs_sections table in the database.

  • In the latest version - there isn't a filteredthreadlist.aspx file - but there is a forums-filteredthreadlistbyforum.aspx

  • This is the latest version, although I may have misnamed the file - should be forums-filteredthreadlist.aspx.

    The latest version uses some siteurls changes so that we don't have to overwrite the existing filteredthreadlist.aspx page - which could get wiped out in an upgrade.  This version of the page goes at /themes/hawaii/ACCustom/forum-filteredthreadlist.aspx.

  • I get a "Page Not Found" found error

  • the correct filename should be "forum-filteredthreadlist.aspx"

    then it works

  • I guess that this example (A live example of this is available at xxx) was only available before you upgraded to 5.0?
