I am adding the ability to sort Article Summaries on a page, but want to keep sorting simple.
1.) Is it okay to combine Sort-Field and Sort-Order into one field?
2.) If so, which of these options is easiest to understand...
Date (Newest to Oldest)
Date (Oldest to Newst)
Title (A to Z)
Title (Z to A)
Rating (Highest to Lowest)
Rating (Lowest to Highest)
Date (<insert down arrow here>)
Date (<insert up arrow here>)
Title (<insert up arrow here>)
Title (<insert down arrow here>)
Rating (<insert down arrow here>)
Rating (<insert up arrow here>)
Date (Newest 1st)
Date (Oldest 1st)
Rating (Highest 1st)
Rating (Lowest 1st)
190 views and no one has an opinion huh?
Would it be better if I broke things out into two separate fields like...
Sort by Direction
I figured users would appreciate only having to select one choice...
Either two separate fields or if you take the single field approach then code it so that it can be used directly without needing to convert it - eg. date and date desc
