Steps to repro:
I have a browser bookmark/link/homepage for https://meta.discourse.org/new?order=category (click on this link first)
Now click on “Latest”. Posts are sorted incorrectly. Have to click “Latest” a second time to reset sort order.
Latest should be sorted by activity on first load.
Note, you need to have at least 1 new topic for this to happen.
order=category is being passed implicitly somehow without being reflected in the url we should fix
I prefer to view New posts by Category, could last sort order be saved separately for the different sections?
