Sure. Either way. The wax ring seals the toilet to the closet flange so it doesn't really matter that much. The important part is that the toilet be mounted firmly to the floor so that it doesn't move. That would cause the wax ring to fail then the toilet would leak around the flange.

Choosing A Closet System?

>How to Design a ClosetThe design of your closet is important because it will determine how much storage you have for clothing and other items that you want to use the closet for. There are several different closet organization systems to choose from.Some of the things that you can include in your closet that you might not have thought of include drawers, hooks that push into the wall and shelves. A closet system is whatever is attached to the doors and walls that make organization and function easy. Your closet system can be functional and decorative. You can have the closet system installed by a professional, or you can get the supplies and do the job yourself. You do need a design before you purchase the supplies and start building.Before you purchase the hardware to be used in your closet, you need to do research on the company. Find out how long the company has been in business, if there are any complaints against the products that the company sells and if there are any warranties on the items sold. Look at how each system works to determine what kind of system you need for the closets in your home. A child's closet would need a different system than one for an adult. A good closet system will have shelves that are at least 14 inches deep. This is the depth of a folded sweater. The width should be about 12 inches. This measurement is the width of a folded sweater. If you have shelves that are smaller than this, the clothes that you lay on the shelves could get wrinkled.Shelves should be no more than 12 inches in height. This will prevent items on the shelf from falling over. You also need about 24 inches of space from the front of the closet to the wall to hang your clothing. After you have decided on a closet brand, you need to make a plan on how you want your closet to look. Remember to keep items that are used the most in a central space. However, you need to think about the proportions of the system so that it looks balanced after it is installed.

You might just need to tighten the bolts holding it down, but probably either one of them has broken or the floor flange broke.

If the flange is broke where the bolt goes, there are a couple of ways to repair it. There is a crescent shaped piece about 4 inches long that goes under the old flange and gives you a new place for the bolt to catch or a complete steel ring can be installed over the old flange.
