I just found the method to make the comments appear in reverse which I believe is much better for the reader and commenter. Is there a way I can make this a new default? If I use another hub for the layout and it has the comments in reverse, will it automatically include the capsule in that manner also?
Let me expand on that. There might be specific cases where it made sense - maybe you are asking people to leave a comment as to when they last saw a particular bird or something like that.
Across the internet, MOST comments are chronological - oldest at the top. Do it backwards without really good reason and you will be the odd duck. When I come across that, my reaction is usually very negative.
It is really hard to read reverse comments and connecting the replies.
