Nice work! Yes, I guess you could use it with the question answer plugin. I’m guessing you based the lists “Active”, “Oldest” and “Likes” on the similar post list sorting options in StackOverflow? Have you tested it out with the QnA plugin? Is there a community who needs this right now? It’d be good to see this in a real community first.

Yes, I have tested with the QnA plugin it is working properly but there it will be required separately to decorate answer count for a perfect view that’s it

Now the plugin is compatible with the discourse-solved plugin. When the user will select the post sorting variant and the topic has a post as a solution then it will showed first then rest of the posts will be sorted according to the sorting variant selected by the user.

@jahan_gagan Thank you for this great plugin. This is very helpful for users to sort a large amount of replies and find what he wants.

Will it possible to make plugin category specific? only works in certain categories?
Also, does it make sense to add a feature to sort the posts by “users I liked” or “users I followed”?
“user follow” is a plugin angus developed. I think “users I liked” is sufficient. Thanks.
