    While I love almost everything about the new forum, the search is enough to drive me batty. In particular, the order of the thread results. Long running but active threads are sometimes very hard to find.

    It seems like the searches should be sorted by recent activity, rather than creation date (at least I think that is how it is doing it).

    Any chance that this can be tweaked? I had really high hopes searching would improve with Xenforo, but is it no better than before.

    Thanks

    Ah, sorry. I could blame the search, but I did not even search. :p

    In case anyone cares, the key for me was the Threads and Posts tab (never noticed it was different from the All tab) in the Advanced options. It contains this option:

    View attachment 30349

    So you can get the popular ones with lots of replies to sort first, which is what I wanted.

    Thanks.

    It would be awesome if that could be the default!
