Searching WordPress.org, top result 7 years old!!!? (2 posts)

    Whenever i use the search box on WordPress.org to look up an issue I am having, since I know someone else has BTDT, the results are randomly ordered. Often, the top results are 3, 4 and even 7 years old. That doesn't do me any good as things have changed drastically since then.

    Surely there's a way of ordering the results in date order, at the very least, or giving users the option to "sort by date", or by relevance?

    We know the forum search sucks. It wasn't exactly a free choice to use Google search. The forum did use Yahoo search but that disappeared - quite suddenly and without notice. So there was a rush to add a new search asap. Google was it. You might be better off just using Google.com and something like site: wordpress.org/support keyword
