Sort search results by thread start date

Post by gotitbro » Sun Apr 23, 2017 4:00 pm

I use "Advanced Search" to find all related threads about a website. I usually sort them by the "Post time" with the Ascending setting to see all related history from beginning to end.

I have a bit of problem though when I do this it sorts by the last post that was made in the thread and I generally do not get the first thread that was created at the top. Is there a way to sort the search results by the time a thread was created rather than the last post time?

Not that I know off. You can however click on the thread and read the whole thing if you want.

Don't understand what you mean by that.

In the search results there's a link to the whole thread.

I know, I already use "Display as threads" option. The problem I had was the sorting was by the last post date and not the thread creation date. I have to search for which thread is the first one if a post has been made on it recently.
