1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    I do occasionally still read fanfic from time to time and one of the issues I was having with our library is that newer members have been bumping older stories (from like 2006-2008) to page 1/2 and those tend to either suck or be stuff I already read.

    Wondered if there was a way to sort by thread start date instead of last post. Asked Syao. Did some googling. Apparently I'm blind, but I'm going to share in case it's helpful. At the bottom of every forum there's a box:

    [​IMG]

    You can choose "Thread Start Time" and hit Show Threads and it'll do exactly what I was looking for. You can also specify Prefix, which I did.


    I reckon some people already know this, but I didn't, so protips.
