When I search for topics and posts, with the
option, I see that the order is not at all sorted by latest post. Sort by Latest Post
MASS MERGE RECORDINGS and MERGE HELPOR 2 are the last updated topics (19h), and they should have come first in the list.
They actually come first when using
. Sort by Relevance
I will try to reproduce on meta or test.

I think it’s because you search
in:first. The post you get as a result is not 19h old, it seems to be from 2017.
But I understand your problem. If searching in:first there is no difference between sort by latest post and sort by latest topic.
Is an example here at meta.
The result shown last ( Configuring Facebook login for Discourse) has newer latest posts than the first result
@Moin, you found the cause!
I have updated the topic title.
Using the default Sort by seems like a nice workaround, anyway. Relevance
I don’t think this is a bug? If you use the
in:first filter by latest it will give you the results of the first post in date order. This seems to be working as expected?
As it’s a topic search result list with the
latest option, I think we could expect it to be ordered with recently updated topic on top.
Even if we use in:first to narrow down the results drastically.
Maybe it would be a feature instead of a bug?
Oh but yes, I can use
by relevanceto get what I want, I forgot that.
