Hi there,

Just a quick suggestion: there appears to be no way to filter or sort search results after the search results have been returned on the forum. I know you can do it from the advanced search, before searching, but when using the search box at the top any page, the results come back ordered by the default "relevance" which isn't necessarily the most useful. I often like to see the most recent results at the top, and the oldest at the bottom, and it would be nice to have that option after conducting a search from the box on every page.

@Tigersharke Maybe we could use THIS ? At least it allows different default search order. Or if we could get the Elastic search that would be superb :]

This is still relevant, still - one can't refine search results in a thread or forum. Either you sort by relevance all of the time or you refine your search for all threads. Infuriating. I dunno, maybe you guys like the 90s forum vibe...
