I can't find a setting that allows me to get search results in date order, actually it seems that there is no way to control how the sorting is performed.

Is this correct, or is it me that is missing something ?

I second this, I don't understand why the results are only random and lack the ability to be date organized. It's not like it forgoes date order and spits forth the most relevant results, it's just a random jumble of returns.

Slightly OT, I'm also curious why my most recent searches have started out with a number of page returns, only to have them all disappear after clicking a page or two in to the results. It's not helpful to have 5 pages of returns, but only be able to view 2 before the rest disappear...

Having the search results in date order would be very handy.

I don't even bother with it.

I use Google instead.

For example type this in Google:

How to get search results in date order site:www.abovetopsecret.com...

This thread shows up as the first result.

BTW, the above search also turns up an interesting comment from 2011:

The first step in our three-step plan to dominate the Internet by ensuring people can easily locate all the material being kept from them by the mainstream media is in place.

[insert maniacal laugh]

ASK.AboveTopSecret.com

Our vastly-improved search function has indexed more than five million distinct pages under the AboveTopSecret.com domain, and is ready for general use. The search results are vastly improved, and boolean search functions (finally) return to searching for content on ATS.

As the index fully cycles a second time, you'll also begin to see auto-complete begin to work for the more common/popular topics discussed on ATS. (yay!)

Phase two of search (requires an even deeper re-index and some additional code) will allow the prioritization of search results based on the date a thread was authored, the date of last reply, forum, flags, replies, and even member names. (Those factors can be searched now, but not yet used for prioritization of results.)

Phase three is top-secret.


Search ATS, sorted by 'Most Recent'?? can we?

If this was the plan as early as 2011, why has it not been implemented by now?
(or has it ?)

Very strange, the old search engine was way better than what we have now. It had lots of features like being able to search only in a specific forum, or posts by a certain member.
