To put it most simply, it seems that if we have our comments broken into pages and want the newest comments first, all we can get is last page leftovers, not a first page of the most recent comments.
In the admin area page settings >> discussion there are options to break comments into pages, to set the first or last page, and to set the order within a page. however there is no option to order the list in “desc” order so that the newest comments are first … with the first page having the newest comments. Also, the one place which seems to have such an option does not work: the “wp_list_comments( array(“, in the Twenty Fourteen theme’s comments.php program (which provides a ‘reverse_top_level’=> ‘true’ option – mentioned in the codex documentation page): it did not change it to descending for me. It is still ascending with the newest comments at the end – on the last page.
(for the above testing on my test copy, I had turned off all plugins and set the theme to Twenty Fourteen.)
What am I missing?
