When a search is made using a keyword, the results may be ranked according to (a) frequency of occurrence (default, as now), (b) most/least recent, (c) by author name, (d) by idea name.
Other filter parameters may be used, however this is not a "call for list".
What bigsleep is talking about. Not for the faint of heart, but it addresses some common "make my query interface more complicated!" requests. [jutta, Aug 24 2011]
||Yes, yes, we know all about that, thankyou, what we want are some predefined hyperlinks on the search page that instantly change the search ranking.
||I'm worried that that would be making things too
complicated and not get used enough.
I might occasionally see the point of (b), but why (c)
and (d)? What good is alphabetic sort by user or idea
name in this context?
||To me, the most important thing that's wrong with
the search ranking is the absence of ranking by
relevance (occurrences divided by document size).
