    Hi,
    I often want to search a posting from today or yesterday. But I find results a year old.
    This tag "#order by newest" seems not to work for me combined with other search items.

    Can someone verify it?

    I always thought the search was useless. I didn't realize we could order by date.
    Also, confirmed order by date not working here.

    Sorry to revive an old thread but searching on this forum is its worst aspect. Essentially, the forum becomes a huge repository of knowledge over time but if we can't easily search it, it ain't so useful! I'd really like to see ordering by date working.

    Do Xojo Inc plan further development of esoTalk or do we eventually have to move the forum to whatever esoTalk is called nowadays?

    The search is (and always was) completely useless. I use google:

    site:forum.xojo.com order broken

    @Eli O The search is (and always was) completely useless. I use google:
    site:forum.xojo.com order broken

    +1
    Or DuckDuckgo with the same syntax.

    Also Axel Schneider posted a customized search that looks in both the old and the present forum :

    Of course, but I'm asking Xojo Inc what the plan is here.

    Bumping. The #order by newest appears to be well toasted. Is Mr. Esotalk planning to fix?

    @Gavin S do we eventually have to move the forum

    We ?
    You're willing to donate time to move it to flarum (I think thats the successor Toby's been working on)
    At least that's my limited understanding of the thoughts at this time.

    I'll donate time in exchange for a license :P

    Thats not exactly "donate" :)
    The forums are, like everything else, something we have to prioritize in the grand scheme of things we pay employees to work on.
    I know its on the list just not where on the list.
    Alternately esoTalk IS open sourced so anyone could theoretically grab it and fix bugs in it if they so desired.

    esoTalk is dicontinued... so investing time would not make sense.... looking forward to flarum, as far as I can see, they are pretty close to final release... and trying to make the transistion from esoTalk as smooth as possible...

    Yes, three years later, it is still broken.

    How useful order by newest is ?

    Try to search something and you will cry.

    Why not use discourse ?

    My guess is that in theory it will be easier to change the current forum to Flarum than other product, but I don't think Xojo will install a beta version.

    @Neil B Why not use discourse ?

    At the XDC 2018, Flarum was announced to be the successor of esoTalk.

    I don't know. See my earlier post.
