BROKEN AGAIN: 'sort=RECENT' does not appear to be working for I'bles or Q&A Answered
The "sort=RECENT" URL modifier does not appear to be functioning properly for either Instructables or for Questions. Since this is a back-end operation, it should not be browser related (FF, MacOSX 10.5.8). Nevertheless, I have deleted the affected tabs, cleared cache, and reloaded the pages multiple times.
Update 23 May 2013: As Mikeasaurus and Kiteman report, this problem does appear to be fixed. A fresh Safari session showed the correct results, although my Firefox session still did not. I quit and restarted Firefox, logged off of my Instructables session before clearing cache and cookies again, and now both pages are displaying correctly.
Update 8 July 2013: It looks like the mid-day software update today has broken this again. The screenshots shown below (with the two "too many redirects" dummies missing) are exactly what the pages look like right now (3:49 pm PDT).
Here are screenshots showing the page of Instructables and the page of Questions. Both
are were just wrong.
