Description Michael Keppler 2005-06-05 16:42:10 UTC
Wanted pages are sorted by count descending. It would be nice to have alphabetic
sorting of the title as second sort order to get a better overview if many
wanted pages have the same count.
This can be implemented by adding the following 3 lines somewhere in

 function getOrder() {
    return ' ORDER BY value DESC, bl_to ASC';
Comment 1 Michael Keppler 2005-06-05 17:44:40 UTC
Just a second note: If this is implemented, maybe the index on brokenlinks.bl_to
should be changed too for performance reasons. But I'm a complete database idiot
and don't know if SORT BY COUNT(somevalue) can profit from any kind of index.
Comment 2 Quim Gil 2014-02-19 21:57:47 UTC
I can still reproduce this problem today.  :)

Entries with the same count are sorted with a non-evident criteria. I also think alphabetical sorting would be more interesting. Easy fix?

PS: I fouund this report after noticing that it *was* the oldest report that hadn't received any response
