In many search engines one is able to change the "sort by..." for their search. Here for example, a forum search automatically sorts to a percent relevance. I think ther should be a way to change the sorting to maybe sort by date for example. Sometimes when I search for information on something, I have to flip through several pages to find what's most recent because what calls "most relevant" is back from 2002 or something. Then if there are dozens of posts on the same old thread, I have to search dozens of pages to find what's the most recent. I think that would be a nice convenience and a minor change.

You can sort by relevance or by date. Sort by has a dropdown box.

Click search posts or click options next to search.

Once you've clicked on "forums" then clicked on "Searched posts" then picked your sort order and done your search, you can't change between the two without going back and doing a new search. If you do a search from the top right, your only option is to do a relevance search.

Yes there are ways around it, but I think it would be a nice little convenient adjustment that would allow for a little more efficiency. Smile
