@RachelBaker, do you know what core program does the sorting? –  frank13 Jul 25 '12 at 20:46

It is the BP_has_forum_topics() method that handles the displaying of the group forum topics.

The bp_has_forum_topics() function will accept a number of parameters that will manipulate the data being returned.

List forum topics by type: Accepted arguments: newest,popular,unreplied,tags (if type equals “tags”, define the “search_terms” argument and list the tag you wish to filter by) Default value: newest
