Bug Description

Reported by AUT:

When forum post indentation (default) is switched on, forum posts are indented depending on the post to which they refer back. However, when forums don't have indentation on, replies are still grouped right below the post they refer to. That means, you can switch back to indentation and you'll see the indents, but when you switch to "no indents" the order of the replies doesn't change.

Posting the replies right below the posts they refer to but not having the visual indicator of the indentation can make it difficult to follow when something was said and in which order esp. since earlier posts can be way down at the bottom.

We think it's normally the case that when you don't have indentations / threaded replies that the order of the posts is just chronological (like for the feedback).
