Description

Currently it is only possible to sort according to name, creation date and member count.

Additionally it should be possible to sort by last post to a group. This should be the default (descending) when you open the group search page.

When search keywords are provided name (ascending) should be used instead.

created and last post I would show in "ago" format. It reads better. Maybe we could also visually "bold" the relevant line when relevant sort option is active:

  • date-> created line bold on all boxes
  • members->member line bold on all boxes
  • last posts ->last post line bold on all boxes

Problem in usability is that if you search for a term like berlin sorting works. But I miss a way to "clear the search". (hitting an empty search form is an option but not straight forward.

  • while logged out there is a lot of info which could be hidden: 3 times we mention group search. I would hide the tabs as you can't see my groups anyway logged out, so all the content moves up.

Could you please raise separate tickets for the different suggestions as they are unrelated to the goal of this ticket?

Created always showed the full date/time as it was queried from the database. I changed that to use DateHHMMShort and the take the timezone into account.

Change to use ago would be a possibility but is also not part of this ticket as this is about sorting the result list.

  • Status changed from testing to needs_work

Works well with newest FF (no javascript) and newest Chromium (with javascript) under Linux.

One minor thing: The sort icon for "last post" is different from the others, i like the simple triangle more, but this should be the same for all sort options.

(Oh, and we have a lot of post from 1970 ...)

According to #2025 the icon is part of the translation -> so this one can be closed. (Looks like I can't do that myself.)
