I'm trying to search things but there doesn't seem to be an option to filter the results and they show up in a random order but I can't tell till I click on it that it was a thread from 2009 or 2016! I'm on an iPhone using Safari rather than an app. I also can't see how to see a particular members posts? Am I being stupid here or isn't there an option to filter search results or see member's posts?

Are you using Advanced Search? (On the desktop site it's in a purple rectangle just under the words My Mumsnet.) There are filters in that.

Here are a couple of screenshots of AS, if they're any help?

Hi guys, I know this is not what you're asking - but as the iOS app developer, it would be helpful to know what are the most valuable filter or sort-by features for you in search?

We're continuously improving the new search feature on the app, and your feedback is super useful.

TimMumsnet. I wonder whether the OP is using the general Search at the top of the page or Advanced Search? She hasn't come back though, has she?

More filters in AS would be more helpful - although I've now got to think about them!

But I generally use the desktop site, Mac Book Pro, Safari. Otherwise I use the desktop site on an iPad Mini, Safari.

Not interested in the App!

Date for me, Tim. Just ordering by 'most recent first' would probably do it.

TimMumsnet Date order please with the most recent one first. Every time I search I get really old posts - 5-10 years old - appearing at the top. That is really not helpful and gives me the rage angry Thank you smile
