in reply to Newest Super Search

Super Search seems almost too super now ... i'm definitely overwellmed by all the options.

the newest/oldest thing is definitely a little weird, especially since it seems like it allways wants to start with node 1 ... even if you are starting with the newest (and even if you pick a high number, it still seems to count up)

As for Discussions appearing at the top now, I've been wondering why people can't customize which order the sections appear in for themselves? (similar to customizing what order Nodelets appear in)

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Well, I tried to design it so that much of the time you can just fill in what you are searching for in that first box and then hit the button. But there needs to be some major work on how the results are presented after that.

    As I mentioned in the announcement, you can't search "newest first" yet. Those radio buttons are supposed to be "disabled" (they show greyed-out in my browser). I'll probably just remove them until (if) I get that part working. (And the "starting at node ID" field will probably disappear as well.)

    Yes, customizing order on Newest Nodes has been discussed and will probably happen at some point. (:

      tye: Any idea if/when the 'Newest First' can/will be implemented? I find that I almost always want newest first, but I can't have it! Will it put too much load on the DB to stick the ORDER BY ??? DESC in there? If it will never be implemented, then at least take away the tantalizing 'greyed-out' Radio Buttons, so I don't have to constantly be reminded that my searches always come back in the wrong order...
