Paul, no the pinned are not confusing me.
I tested too, and now when I post in a group discussion it DOES take the discussion to the top as it should.
However the problem is that when the latest updates were applied, they randomly ordered all the group discussions up to that point. Many members can now no longer find discussions that had been recent (until the updates)- since now those discussions are buried within other pages of incorrectly ordered discussions.. some discussions go back eight or ten years. This is not the end of the world, but is a problem and frustration in larger groups with many older discussions.
Is there any way to RE-ORDER all group discussions at this point in time now, so that they are once again in correct order- from discussions with most recent activity to discussions with most long ago activity?
Here is an example of the problem, in my Beginner Players Group:https://fotmd.com/strumelia/group/1/beginner-players
The pinned discussions are on top as expected. Any discussions that have had posts SINCE the update scrambled everything are also at top.
But ALL discussions before the update which used to be in correct order are now seemingly random.
See this one which has not had activity for 7 years now:https://fotmd.com/strumelia/group_discuss/377/for-noter-drone-beginners-playing-from-music-rather-than-tab
....it's way above in the list compared to this discussion which was started just 4 months ago in June and had its last post in July:https://fotmd.com/strumelia/group_discuss/2687/pick-thickness
This ordering makes no sense to me. However, as you go into older pages of discussions, there is a 'general' tendency to order them with oldest last. But the 'newer' pages, especially pages 1 and 2 of the discussions, make less sense. What the heck?? I do know that this happened suddenly, seemingly right at the time of my applying that large number of JR updates last time around.
Any clue as to what happened or how to now 'force' a RE-order of them by date of last post?
