Hello, I have a small problem with sorting features on my site.
I have catalogue with 18 subcategories with ~500 entries each.

I am going to one of sucategories & want to sort it by name ASC:
 RESULT: is the same as 'added ASC'
I am going to one of sucategories & want to sort it by name DSC:
 RESULT: is the same as 'added DSC'
Same is when I want sort by author...

I am going to put top 3 entries on my main page, so I put there a block with 'main_cc_embed', setting subcategory & setting sorting by rating DSC

 RESULT: is the same as 'add_date DSC'

So every sort option DSC is the same as 'added DSC' & every option ASC is the same as 'added ASC'.

I have no idea why... If someone could help with this...

Greetings

My immediate thought…
Because the abbreviation is DESC rather than DSC?

  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Sorry for the small portion of informations ;)
Abbrevation is nothing with it…it just in my post DSC means Descending...I know i should't play with ' '  :)

More informations:

- version ocPortal 9.0.19
 

Expand: Addons installed Addons installed




I've made test creating new subcategory with small amount of entries. Sorting there works perfect. Tested also pagination with max=3 entries per page and works too. So 500 entries is too much for working sorting functions? Where I have to look to resolve this problem?

Thanks for providing all those details. This seems to be a poor-considered limitation from a long time ago, that we should have removed. Hot-fix coming.
