Simple news - sort order problem

Jan 19, 2016 at 9:19 PM
I am running 2sxc 8.012 on DNN 7.2.
I am trying out Simple news. When I add new news the newest is supposed to be on top but it is not. The newest item is always on top regardless of the date.
When I look into the pipe and run the test the newest news is on top if the date is the newest. I.E. the sort order is right but it is not the case in the module.
Should'nt it be?

Thanks. Einar

It's been a while but please provide some more details. I'll assume you're using a data pipeline (visual query) to get the data, but the sorting seems wrong, right?

Pls just do some simple checks to be sure you didn't miss something (like plugging it in :)
  1. What view are you looking at
  2. Confirm that this view has the pipeline attached which you expect
  3. What field is the pipeline sorting by
  4. Make sure the pipeline isn't caching the result from a previous configuration (better not cache till you get it all worked out)

Some how the view did not have pipeline set. I thought I had checked. Arghhh.
Thanks, Einar
