Default Thread Display Mode

Setting your Thread Display Mode to:
Linear - Newest First
Causes you to have difficulty viewing the first post of thread. You can't seem to get to the actual "Article" or "Tutorial". Going to the last page will show the article preview but clicking on the link "Click here to read the entire____" takes you to the last post, not the article.
If you change your thread display setting then go to one of the article forums and try to read an article, you will see what I mean.

Is there any way to disable the first post preview on additional pages and just have the full article show on all pages?

Exactly this is not a bug. You shall disable other viewing properties in a GARS powered forum since GARS is an article system.

Default is this possibile?

Is it possibile to disable viewing mode per forum?

I think it's not possibile using Vb standard features.

Thread Display Mode is a global option set via a member's UserCP, as far as I know there is no way to disable it for a particular forum.

I agree this issue is not a bug.
It is a big inconvenience to any members that have their option set to display newest posts first.
They see the preview first, and can't get to the full article, I don't think it is buggy at all, just that when this feature was designed, viewing threads this way was not taken into consideration. Just a case of adding a cool feature(article preview) with an unfortunate side effect.
My forum has a large percentage of members who use the setting, Linear: Newest First. I really had no idea that many members set their options this way until they stated complaining about the article preview.

It also seems to be no mod to bypass this big inconvenience
I've also asked on vb.org with no success.

I could not renew my subscription at GARS if a big part of my users are not able to read full articles... and I was ony of most passionate fan of geek scripts.
