Ordering search results

Post by sandormatyas » Tue Apr 20, 2021 9:12 am

When I search for a word and set the ordering to newest, I get the search results but the ordering is relevance DESC at first and the date is the second. It's confusing to show search results from 2021 after results from 2020 because it's more relevant if I want to show exact the newest at the first place.
Is it possible not to use the relevance when I select newest/oldest?

No, search ordering was intentionally broken. You'll have to write your own search plugin for correct ordering.
