In bitcointalk forum, if you go to a board, the default sort behavior is to sort by most recent reply, but sometimes you may want to sort by most recent thread that is created, so that you can view the latest topics easily. It is pretty easy to do so, here is how:

First, go to that board, for example, in Meta board, the URL will be:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0

Then, append the following to the end of the board URL to sort by most recent topic that is created:
Code:
sort=first_post;desc

Also, do not forget to add ";" after the board URL, so the new URL will become:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0;sort=first_post;desc

This way you will be able to view the most recent thread that is created. Some people find it helpful using this code to find the latest announcement in bounty or altcoin board. In the code:
  • first_post means sorting by the first post of a certain thread
  • desc means sort from newest to oldest




A little more to thread sorting:

1) If you want to view oldest thread first, add:
Code:
sort=first_post;asc
 or
Code:
sort=first_post
Actual URL (for Meta board): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0;first_post;asc  

Note: By default it is always sorting by ascending, so it is fine to not put "asc" here.

2) Sort by most replies:
Code:
sort=replies;desc
Actual URL (for Meta board): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0;sort=replies;desc

3) Sort by most views:
Code:
sort=views;desc
Actual URL (for Meta board): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0;sort=views;desc

4) Sort by thread starter (the author of that thread):
Code:
sort=starter
Actual URL (for Meta board): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0;sort=starter

5) Sort by thread subject:
Code:
sort=subject
Actual URL (for Meta board): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0;sort=subject

6) The default sorting behavior of the threads is in fact:
Code:
sort=last_post;desc

This is because the forum is default to be sort by latest reply, if you try https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0;last_post;desc, you will in fact view the same sorting as https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=24.0.

In fact, for sorting by Subject/Started by/Replies/Views, you can also click the header of the column to sort, it seems to be easier that way  Smiley

For this, you can probably go to forum search (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=search), and filter by "Message age:", there you can define the message to be between x and y days.

Some ways to get notified on new posts of a board:
1) You can add that board to your watchlist. Here is how:

You can click the "Watchlist" link on the top left of the forum, then click "Watch board", and give the id of that board.

For example, if you want to watch the Announcements (Altcoins) board, you can click into that board, you will see URL https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=159.0, then 159 is the id for this specific board. You just need to enter 159 to the input box, now all new topics posted there will be added to your watchlist automatically.

2) You can click the "notify" link for that board.

Once you go to that board, you will be able find this link on the right side of the forum, it is displayed in the same row as "new topic" link. Once you click "notify", you will get notification if there is new topic posted for that board.
