    Search question

    Is there a way to reorder search responses? When I make an advanced search request, the responses come back in random dates making the results difficult to impossible to use.

    Is there a way to reorder responses so the newest/latest are first and then in descending order by date? I just don't see how to do it.

    Thank you.
    Mike

    Are you using the full site view or the mobile view? I ask because I just picked a forum at random (Commuting) and hit the advanced search. I was presented with "Search In" options, "Search For" options, and then "Additional Options".

    Under "Additional Options", I was presented:

    -Find Posts with a drop down menu for the date. Options range from last visit, yesterday, weeks, months, a year, or any date. Then I was given the option of either Newe or Older in a drop down menu.

    -Sort Results by with a drop down menu. Options here are title, date, user name, or relevance. Then another drop down to arrange in Ascending Order or Descending Order.

    Thank you no1mad. My phone for some reason didn't pick up the options that the full site view permits on my desk top. I appreciate your response.

    No problem.

    FYI, you should be able to do the same thing with your phone using the mobile view skin. I switched my laptop to that and the options are there- albeit in a slightly different format. Note that I didn't attempt to replicate this using my tablet (latest Android OS), but I imagine I could if I'd just get off my duff and go get it .
