#7633 reopened enhancement

Activity stream comments and reply display order.

WP 4.8 BP 2.9

Hi, I am trying to get the activity comments/reply stream to display in descending order. ie latest at the top.
Activity stream updates display with the latest post at the top but currently comments/replies display with the oldest post at the top.
I have been able to switch activity updates order by switching the sort order from ASC to DESC in bp-activity-template.php but this has no effect on comments/replies.

How do I get comments/replies to function the same way as updates?

I have been provided with a temporary solution by support and it was suggested that I open a trac to suggest this as an enhancement to the activity stream.

Thank you.

@axelmire Thanks for writing, but we can't provide support via this site -- it's for tracking bugs in the core software. If you reply and link me to your forum thread, I'll take a look, but can't promise anything.

I asked @axelmire to open this ticket. The enhancement request is this: We allow activity to be queried ASC or DESC, but activity comments are always queried ASC. We should have a way for plugin authors to specify comment order, as it's not unreasonable to want them in descending chronological order.
