Jilly...my forum reads latest (newest) comment at the bottom of the page...it comes up first and I don't scroll to find it.....on the old forum we could change that...can't see any such option now. But on the Community stream....things are sort of willy nilly and out of order ! You don't always know the context of the comments ! That's my 2 cents worth.
For me, the latest post was always at the end. Like Wendy said, it must have been a setting. Maybe Bob can find a way to add that setting back in (or maybe someone can point you to it if it's already there). I like having them at the end so haven't looked for that myself.
