So was this issued or no?
EDIT: Apparently not, unless I missed it when searching high and low for it, so I created one.
Guys, do we have feature to sort topics in a particularcategory?
In a category we want to sort topics according to date/ engagement/ popularity; I can't see any option for this!!
If I remember correctly, you can change the order in the admin panel for all categories; not just one, however.
@Ted I am asking this feature for users who want sort the topics accordingly.
@ankitpr89 I don't believe there is a way to sort topics by popularity. However, it is difficult to come up with a suitable algorithm to correctly elevate posts based on popularity while taking into account staleness of the post.
Simply put: If we sorted topics according to popularity, the most popular topic would be at the top forever
This is quite an intersting read on sorting by popularity: http://scienceblogs.com/builtonfacts/2013/01/16/the-mathematics-of-reddit-rankings-or-how-upvotes-are-time-travel/
The trick is to let the votes' influence degrade over time.
@EisFrei A very interesting read! The best course of action may just be to copy a known-good working algorithm in any case (e.g. Reddit).
