Hi all,

i know this could "shake" all the foundation of the JForum, but i'm just curious.

This question is 100% theoretical!

JForum 2 -- as all "forums" do -- is currently showing messages in one "dimension" -- sorted by post time or something like that, right?

Will JForum 3 be able to handle messages in some other way -- using for example tree-like (like threaded) messages list?

In current status, if I reply (at t1) to the 2. post in a topic with 10 posts, my post will be show last even if it addresses directly the 2nd topic. This is pretty hard to follow for a new user on an existing forum.

Do you plan to support this feature?
