can search for forums be in alphabetical order please


Hi

if you try to search a specific forum, when you scroll down the list you find the distros are not in alphabetical


Any chance of changing that?

This is not the same as my 2013 request to have the forums in alpha order
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175485187/

I am going to take a wild guess and predict that the search list is in sync with the forum list.

cheers

I'm not entirely clear what this request is asking for. When you search a forum, the results are in descending time order.

search options allows search in forums, but they are not in alphabetical order

I think your time descending is another way of saying search and show current results after you click the search button,
I am still in the first phase as per image

thanks for reading

Thanks for the clarification. We have no plan to change that order at this time (with the current software, it would be very difficult to change without making the change previously requested).
