I already searched the group and found one question similar to mine, but it was unfortunately unanswered. :-(
I am specifically trying to set "sort_field" in the "Search Archives" API call. Without setting it, the returned topics list is I suppose, in an order of "relevance". I want the order to be chronological.
I have reviewed the API documentation thoroughly, and "sort_field" is not defined consistently,
The usual definition for "sort_field" is: "The field to sort on. Valid values are dependent on the call." This is true for "Search Archives".
I have tried the following parameters for "sort_field" in the "Search Archives" API call, but unfortunately, none seemed to work: "id, created, subject, title, name, order". In all instances, the return messages were "sort_field": "relevance".
Is "sort_field" parameter simply un-implemented in the "Search Archives" API? Is there any chance it will be implemented, or will I simply have to perform my own sort on the returned objects?
