Is it possible to sort forum search results by date
« on: September 23, 2018, 11:28:24 am »
Hello,

When I search (using the search feature) for some word in the forums, the resulting list is not in chronological order (the post date can vary by years from one entry to the next.)

Is there a way to tell the search feature to show the results sorted from most recent at the top to oldest at the bottom ?

Thanks.

While I'm here asking questions, is there a way to search for posts that have attachments ?

Thanks again.

Is this what you are looking for? Sort order: Most recent topics first

I don't think so, but you can have more info on:
Help for Simple Machines software

I have found a similar request, but it seems it won't be implemented...
"Locate attachment in files" or a "Search attachments" mod

Yes, that's it.  I missed the elephant in the room ... LOL.

Thanks.  At least I didn't miss the obvious again.. hopefully, they will implement that sometime.
