RFC - A better/useful sort system

Post by Leinad4Mind » Wed Jan 11, 2017 4:00 pm

phpBB could have a better sort system. The actual sort could still exist, or at least remove the sort by option from the list and this instead should be on a future release:

I've seen this on many others forum systems and its really the ideal for sorting. I guess 100% of phpbb users will agree on this.

You can test here . That forum has the sort as I talk and the special arrows for navigating on the page numbers. (This is perfection! :P )

Best Regards

Agreed about the sorting arrows, as long as they are discreet.

However, I wouldn't like any arrow to replace the ellipsis (three dots). The dots are universally understood for that specific usage.

better as an extension as it is easy enough to role out that way prior to 3.3 which where this would have to end up.
