I have created a page called
No Replies for my forum with the following URL:
What this does is creates an empty search query with the following advanced search parameters:
status:single_user in:unsolved status:open order:latest_topic
Essentially, it’s used to find out the unsolved topics for which no one has replied. (so that we can attend those on priority)
What’s wrong with it?:
There are some categories like
Announcements, etc. where having a post with no replies is totally fine. But they show up in the above search.
What I tried:
For the categories mentioned above (where
no replies are not to be taken serious), I set the
Search Priority for those categories as
Very Low, so that they could appear in the last during the search.
But it doesn’t seem to happen. Even when I sort the search results by
Relevance, they still show up at with the top ones.
Only when I set the
Search Priority as
Ignore for those categories, the search prioritization seems to work (that is, those topics from
ignored categories disappear)
Can someone please explain the prioritization behavior? (with empty search query)
And a solution to ensure
Low Priority category topics always go to the bottom?
Note: If this is not a
bug, please feel free to move it to the relevant category.
