It would be nice if the search results were sortable, especially by date. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the current results list, and it's really difficult to find anything.
Agree with you and that's why I usually use google when I need to find something.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

There is “search order” FWIW & if I have some idea as to when it was posted I’ll use “Message age” between X & X days.

Not sure where to put this...

I wrote a little bit of CSS to align the orange NEW buttons to the right.

Screenshot:



The advantages are:
1) It looks nicer
2) I use an extension called LinkClump which allows me to drag a rectangle over a bunch of links and open them all in new tabs, so like this I can open all the new threads at once.

Here's the CSS:
Code: [Select]
a[id^="newicon"]  {
    float:right;
}

I pasted it into Stylish and set it to only run on websites that start with
Code: [Select]

Enjoy!
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

After some back and forth this is what I got @Dan @JJ

Gonna need @BAHayman or @whYME to figure out where to stick that.

I would hate that. Makes it difficult to see which thread you're clicking on.

Then how about this way?


Code: [Select]
a[id^="newicon"] {
    float: left;
    margin-right:4px;
}

Can also include this to make the NEW buttons bigger so they're easier to click on:
Code: [Select]
a[id^="newicon"] {
    float: left;
    margin-right:4px;
}

a[id^="newicon"] img {
    height:14px;
}
