Sorting Search Results

Pho Strummer Jan 22, 2007 05:48 PM

Is there a wayo to sort the results of a search by date. I don;t put as much weight on a post / review from '99 as I do a recent review. I'd like to be able to sort the results of a keyword search by date but they only seem to sort alphabetically or something.

    I'm kind of confused. I came on here to see if anyone else had posted about sorting by date or score...And, viola, there was one already. But no answer from Chow. I think this is an extremely important feature, to Pho Strummer's point, I don't really care about a comment on a restaurant from '99-the restaurants come and go too quickly...

      Also, those "results->topics->all" links at the top of the search results seem pretty
      poorly thought through. Clicking on any one refreshes the current page.
      If you "filter by board name" it turns into, say, "Results > Topics > San Francisco Bay Area "
      Clicking on Topics refreshes the current page. Clicking on Results turns the links
      to "Results->all", dropping the "topics" from the original links.

      The more I think about what you're trying to do here, the less sense it makes.
