I don’t know if this is due to a recent change or if it’s always been like that, but when I go to /edit/settings and choose sort by creation date (descending), I expect to see topics sorted by creation date.
However, I’m getting topics sorted by last activity. Is it just me?
Edit: I edited the category, changed it to order by activity and saved it. They I edited it again and changed it to order by created and saved it. Now it appears to work again.
I think I’ve found one possible source of confusion: the category/tag links on the homepage (class=“subcategory”) point to the /latest endpoint of that category. Even though it doesn’t show up on the URL, you can see it in the Network tab:
I think it’s indeed not the desired behavior, especially since the category links from the sidebar link to /id. I’d say it’s not exactly a bug, but something that has been overlooked.
Can you make a new topic with detailed explanations and screenshots in bug (we’ll recategorize it later if not the best category for this)? The thing to emphasize is that these links don’t honor the category settings.
