Sort topics within category by topic title


(Steve Combs) #1

Each category now has a sort order setting with ascending / descending.

However, there is no option to sort for Original Post Title. Besides Created, seems like that would be a key use case.

Would be nice for categories that use naming or numbering conventions in the topic title, such as for documentation, policies, FAQs, calendars, changelogs, releases, etc.

That is kind of a bizarre sort order. There is certainly no index on that field…

Ok. Wasn’t sure how the index worked.

Current workaround is to create a topic, manually add the additional topics in desired order with links, and unlist those additional topics if needed.

Could also change the timestamps.

Not a big deal if it’s not easily supported. Thanks.
