We recently migrated an old taiga instance (4.0.4) to new taiga instance (6.7.0) (install from source).
On our old instance, when we sort comments on any issue, if “recent first” is displayed, the most recent comment is displayed on top of list.
On our new instance, when we sort comments on any issue, if “older first” is displayed, the most recent comment is displayed on top of list.
So, the behavior is reversed between old and new instance.
Is it normal ? if yes, is there any settings to keep the behavior of old instance (if “recent first” is displayed, the most recent comment is displayed on top of list) ?
First off, welcome to the Taiga community!
Seems like we’ve got a bit of a thing here related to “action” or “status.” If you’re assuming “Oldest first” is the “button to change” (kinda like “Comments are now sorted by latest, click here to switch to oldest first”), then all’s good. If you’re thinking “Oldest first” is the current state (something like “Comments are currently sorted by oldest, click here to change them”), then you might have a hitch somewhere.
It’s a tricky one because some folks prefer one thing, others the opposite. The clearest way might be to put the whole sentence as “Sorted by oldest first, change here.” but it’s too long.
Either way, I reckon your choice should be stored in your browser session and stick around for next time.
In the new version of Taiga we’re cooking up, I think we’ve tackled this better.
Hope this helps, and cheers for reaching out!
