I’m getting inconsistent results when I test this on Meta. What I expect to happen the first time I click the “Replies” table header is for the query parameter
?ascending=true&order=posts to be appended to the URL that’s in my browser’s address bar. The second time the “Replies” table header is clicked, the query parameter should be updated to
The behaviour I’m finding is that clicking the “Replies” header is appending the
?ascending=false query parameter. This has no effect on the order of topics in the list. Clicking the “Replies” header a second time removes the
?ascending=false query parameter. This also has no effect on the order of the topics.
If I manually append
?ascending=true&order=posts to the URL in my browser’s address bar, clicking the “Replies” header works as expected.
I am finding this behaviour on the Top list, but also sometimes on the Latest lists. I am not sure why the results of clicking the “Replies” header are inconsistent. Once I have added the
?ascending=true&order=posts query parameter to a URL, the “Replies” filter seems to work correctly on subsequent pages that I visit.
I’m running the Chrome browser on Linux.
