Setting the ordering of the watchlist
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimated Story Points

Description

I turned on the list and found that it was sorting the changes according to some strange criterion. The list is almost impossible to use in real time, since the latest changes have to be looked for somewhere inside the list.


Is it possible to do the standard ordering by date and time?

@Iniquity so this should really be documented somewhere, but the order is based on the order edits are made in, and then if there are multiple edits to the same page their are displayed using the timestamp of the latest, but (I'm pretty sure) still sorted using the timestamp of the oldest. Maybe we can add an explicit sort function watchlistUtils...

I'm positive that the edits are sorted by page ID.
