Flat or Hybrid with Tree?

Hi @ll,

since this is my first posting in this forum, i'd like to express my respect and thanx to the dev-team and all (mod) contributors!

I've been running forums since middle of the Nineties, and it was always the "fully threaded view" that made the difference. My oldest forum needs a facelifting and after intense comparison, i choose Phorum as a starting base because of the three viewing styles offered.
What i need now, is a hint into what direction to look, to have a tree - as in Threaded View - also on the Flat or Hybrid style Views. I'd like to display the first posting, then the tree-structure, and then all follow-up postings on the read page.

I guess, this could be accomplished by calling the LOOP MESSAGES loop twice ...?

Best regards from Hamburg, Germany,

I'd go for the hybrid view as the flat view only has the current page as data available. But building a nice tree outside of the regular logic might be quite some effort :(
