Cant search by rating Answered

Picture of

I am unable to search instructables or anything else by rating. Was this feature removed or is it just me with this issue? If it was removed, can you quickly explain why? It would make zero sense to remove it, if someone wanted to make something or find the best of something, they can find the highest rated instructable and that will most likely be the best choice. Also, if you remove search by rating, then you should remove being able to rate stuff altogether.

If you want to sort by rating, as lemonie suggested, change the "sort=none" or whatever else it might say at the end of a graphics search, and change it to "sort=rating"

I don't see the clickable link being put back in anytime soon (if at all). So your best bet to see something sorted by rating, is to manually enter it in.

You add "&sort=rating" to the end of the URL.

.  Maybe
.  Or maybe, just maybe, it's the "&sort=rating" part that does the sorting and you can change "a" to the subject you are searching for..

I don't have that option, either, so it isn't just you.
I can't think of any reason why they would get rid of that, unless they're also getting rid of the rating system (I don't know why they would do that).
You can still go by views, featured, or popular. It won't be the same as going by ratings.
