    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    When I first joined here, the post with the most recent replies automatically went to the top of the pile. Now, even though I have it checked to sort posts by the "newest", it does no such thing. Just week old posts with no new replies sit around at top, and I have to go looking for more recent stuff and to find topics I am interested in. It would be nice if the post with the most recent replies landed on top again.

    The latest posts go to the top of the list.

    I think your solution is to not click on the 'Discussions' option when you first come into the Diabetes Community. Just scroll down the page and you will see the most recent items at the top of the page.

    I clicked on the 'Discussions' option and that threw everything out of order. I clicked on the 'WebMD Diabetes Community' near the top of the page and everything was good again.

    davedsel is correct!
    When you get into the community, the middle column is the "What's Happening Now" feed that gives you posts that are most recent.

    Clicking into the discussions isn't chronological based on replies.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions please! Hope you're having a good weekend - Haylen

    Go into WebMD as described. Bookmark that. Click on the bookmark when you want to come to this community.
