Comments out of order, shows more pages than there actually is

Why do threads show out of order and it shows like 50 pages, but when I click on some on the bottom they don't actually exist? Very hard to find a comment and follow a thread. Also, when I get a notification that someone replied to me it doesn't take me to the page where that is

do you have any screenshot(s)? what browser/os?

the default thread view is sorted by last reply, so if you want to sort by something different you need to click the header.

quote notifications should take you to the post so knowing what your setup is might help someone troubleshoot.

I think I figured it out in Setting and Options, Thread Display settings. I don't know WHY the default would be backwards. This is for within a thread. The notifications are now taking me at least to the right page
