Can forum search results be sorted?

For example, by date?  That would make it easier to focus on the more recent posts which would make answers or suggestions returned more relevant to the current state of Onshape development and status.

    @michael3424 Each category is sorted by date with most recent at top.  Once you read a post, the highlight is cleared so that helps keep track of what is unread.  The Category 'RECENT DISCUSSIONS' is most helpful to keep up with the latest posts...  It takes a while but reading back at least a few pages in each category is rich with information.  Then just minutes a day can keep you up to date.

    Thanks, but I'm talking about the list of results that are returned after you search a forum for a specific search term or phrase.  I don't see a way to sort the returned list by date or any other criteria.

    Have you tried to use advanced filters?

    @3dcad - thanks a bunch, that's what I was missing.  Oh, what a difference an inverted triangle makes.
