I have a suggestion for when you're searching the forums. I noticed that everytime I search the forums for a particular subject, example "Jeb Corliss", I get lots of results but all in random date order. I just wish I could sort it by date from the most recent to the oldest without having to look at the posting dates. It seems that this feature IS implemented in the actual forums themselves but not when you get search results when searching the forums. Just a suggestion. Wink

And yes I know that you can already do this by going under "Options" at the bottom after you search but what I'm suggesting is the simple clicky at the top like in the forums normally.

The last drop down menu is "Post Posts By"

Choose "Post Date"

I'm talking about when you're on DZ.com and you see the box in the upper right hand corner. You type a search in that box and hit enter, get results and only if you go to the bottom and click "options", sort by post date. My suggestion is to make it simpler, just like it is when you're normally reading the forums, where you can just click on the top right to organize by post date. Thanks anyways though. Smile

That search box searches the entire dropzone.com website. Use the "Search Posts" link in the Forums tool bar instead - it's much more effective and will sort the results by post date like you are looking for.
