Why doesn’t search function return results in date order?

Preferred would be newest to oldest. What is the logic employed to list the order of results?

Another vote for newest to oldest.

You can change the sort to most recent from advanced. By default it’s best match.


Correct - although same-day the search function results might, as I have seen, sort in the last order you changed it to. Not always, but sometimes it does do that - since I typically sort by ‘latest’ it’s handy, but there have been times I needed it by ‘most relevant’ as well.

Here are all the settings for search: (apparently if I slow the server down you’ll get your wish! :grin:)

Thanks for the tutorial on adjusting the settings

So do you believe you have it set to default to chronological? Because I always have to go into advanced search and change it. Is there a setting I’m missing?

There’s no such setting system-wide, as you see above - often I’ve found the browser cookie CAN save your preferences, if you search several times same day, it can often remember and sort by date, but it’s random
