Ordering search resultsEdit

Hi Galobtter, thanks for pointing out mw:Help:CirrusSearch#Prefer-recent to me. However, I don't seem to be able to get it to work. For example, if I want to search for my posts on RSN, I might go to the noticeboard and enter sunrise prefer-recent:1,7 in the search box, but the results aren't actually ordered by date like I want. I'm guessing the problem is the suggestion in the instructions that it only works in highly refined search results. I've also been looking at mw:Help:CirrusSearch#Explicit_sort_orders without success. Do you know anything more about this? Sunrise (talk) 00:17, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Sunrise, the date search results display in green and also sort by is the date of the last edit. Unfortunately, because of say bot edits to fix formatting issues etc, this may not correspond to archive ordering - that's the issue I see when doing a search for "sunrise prefer-recent:1,7".

That makes sense. I only note it means that ordering search results by date (that is, by when the edit that matches the search result was made) is not actually possible in the current system. :-) Based on your answer I tried ordering by creation timestamp and it comes the closest, except that the live page gets counted as the oldest instead of the newest. (And that a search like this really shouldn't require editing URLs, of course!) Sunrise (talk) 10:26, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcomeEdit

I've been editing since 2004, but I think that the ability to create a named account is at the heart of most of what's wrong with Wikipedia, so I edit without one. Best, 73.92.193.211 (talk) 16:12, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
