RSS feed: Sorting by Date doesn't work

Post by ADukes » Sun Mar 23, 2008 12:14 am

When you click on the date header of a RSS feed then the small arrow icon changes the direction but the entries won't be sorted.

The url to add is...

That's odd. Here's a screenshot of mine, same page.

Is it possible you have a different build 8 than the rest of us? Maybe something was changed by the time you got it and the time it was posted here, since we had that day of having the wrong install? Do your image links for the feed pages ever load or is the fact they're not showing in your screenshots a fluke?

I'd guess it's caused by different date format settings.

It looks exactly the same except the small icon if sorted in the other way round.

Actually, they are NOT sorted by date.
The dates are all the same, they are sorted by time.

No, they are not.

I'm thinking Adukes is probably right about the date settings on the PCs being different and causing the problem. The USA uses a funky month first, then day, then year setting that might cause the problem.

I wonder if changing the setting on our PCs would cause the sorting to work correctly?

Initially mine are sorted by date, new to old... but it won't allow me to change the sort to old to new. Also, if I change it to sort by subject, I can't change back to sort by date.

Anyway, I really like the new display for these feeds.

I'm sure hoping that the RSS feed section works better, it seems to right now. I'm worried by one post that states it won't remove older posts once the limit is reached. I could see where this date problem might cause issues with that function.

At least this version is updating the feed.

[side topic]
Are you guys getting false notifications of new entries on a feed? Each time I start Avant it pops up that there are new feeds, but there isn't really. I haven't posted about it and wanted to ask about your experience before putting anything else on the board.
