Advanced Search and "Order Results" Function

    I have encountered an issue with the “Order results” function and I am not sure if it is working as intended. I have an advanced search function that can specifically find the item you are looking for which works fine. I have found that the results of that search do not play well with the “order results” function. IF I take the results of my search and sort them the query returns that there are no matches to my request which I already know is not true. I just want to sort them now that I have the items I am looking for.

    Is this a bug or are my files messed up?

    basically if your advanced search includes custom fields then you cannot then reorder those using the order-by button, in the next release the order-by will disappear.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    If I want to allow users to sort completed auctions, what words for “bid status” will get the desired results?

    hi mark, i see you mention here that i cannot set the sort order function to sort by custom fields if my advanced search is by custom fields. why is that and is there a possible workaround?

    and if not, what CAN we sort by other than post titles?
