SEARCH using order="created" not working

If I write a simple SEARCH to find the most recently created topics, this does not seem to work.

%SEARCH{".*" type="regex" order="created" limit="10" reverse="on" format="|$topic|$createdate|"}%

This does not identify the most recently created topics but seems to come up with a random selection (I'm guessing not random, but I can't see the pattern).

I've just tested this in the Sandbox on this site ( and it works fine, but not on my site.

The only possible reason I can think of this that a miixture of topics copied from our previous TWiki installation mixed with Foswiki topics is confusing it as the history files seem to be a different format.

Any suggestions?



-- TamsinTweddell - 05 Apr 2012 is running 1.1.5RC1, so there might be differences. There are also config options that might have an impact. f.o is running PurePerl search and RcsLite since it's configured for fcgi, though that really shouldn't make a difference.

I just ran a quick test on my Foswiki 1.1.4 system, and it appears that the topics are listed by date changed, not create date. However it's working fine on 1.1.5.
