I have plenty of pet peeves when it comes to WordPress. My latest new one is search order results when I type in a search parameter. It seems to be hit or miss when WordPress changes it, but today when I typed in FindMyPast Fridays, it sorted it oldest to newest. Most of the time it sorts newest to oldest. Thankfully, this search turned up a limited number of hits which meant I was able to find last week’s post on the topic.
Near as I can tell, it doesn’t matter if I on the Published, Draft, or Scheduled tabs when I do the search as it happens each place. Again, it’s not constant, but how about an option to select Oldest to Newest or Newest to Oldest. In general, I want newest to Oldest. It’s why I added Easter Eggs – Bloggers, Vloggers, Authors / Writers – Do You Use Easter Eggs? to posts that I want to find quickly. For example, Some of the Places I Find Articles – April 2, 2019, I use this link almost daily so I added a Hidden Easter Egg to it. That why I can find it without having to go digging through months of posts to find it every day.
I chose to hide the Easter Egg because it’s an easy way for me to find the post and I don’t have to explain why I added a meaningless non-existent word. I thought it’s non-existent, but turns out a search on the term using my least favorite search engines shows other people using the term. I decided to use a different term as some of the search results made me wonder. I have a handful of other posts I have used other Hidden Easter Eggs for ones I want to find fast.
