Hi,
I'm wondering if there's a way to sort messages on a word [i.e., Druzy] and when you get a lot of listings, do a sub-sort by date?
I doubt that there is....but thought I'd ask.

change the search order to sort by newest, or sort by oldest, according to how you want them displayed when running your search query.

yes, the search order is supposed to control the order of display. seems broken, or it is doing by board by date or something. For example I searched "ebay" which I know has been used in the last day, and the 1st message I got was from 2010.

Really....where in heck do you 'change the search order'? 
I must be blind.

OMG!!!
I guess I was always just typing it in the box in front of the word 'search' and clicking 'search'.
I didn't even realize that that spyglass on the left of the box has 'choices'.   That's great.

So if I just select 'Most recent topics first' and remove the check marks on 'all areas' and only check areas I think are likely to have it......Excellent!!!   I'm so glad this exists......and I'm so glad I asked.
