Please see http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Sandbox/AttachmentTest?sortcol=4;table=1;up=1#sorted_table for a reference. The dates are sorted alphabetically - see attach2.txt that is attached to that topic. It doesn't work on our own TWiki deployment either but the fact that it fails on twiki.org points to a general bug rather than a config / deployment issue

I couldn't see any issues logged on the support web for this.

Anyone any ideas?

Many thanks,

That looks like a bug indeed. Let's see how a normal table behaves:

Title DateSorted ascending
MNO 06 Feb 2006 - 19:02
DEF 07 Feb 2006 - 13:23
ABC 26 May 2007 - 22:36
GHI 26 Jul 2007 - 13:23

No problem here. It must be in the attachment table then.

The strange thing is that with the attachment table the url says "sortcol=4" while the sorted column is number 5.

-- ArthurClemens - 16 Sep 2008

I thought the sortcol is 0 based, i.e. Icon = 0 Attachment = 1 Action = 2 Size = 3 Date = 4

Is that right?

-- ChrisBooth - 16 Sep 2008

You are right. Confusing and not clear from the documentation. So the issue here is something else.

No, the first column has number 1. So Icon = 1.

Added one more row to this test case to show that, effectively, July comes after May.

Any workarounds?

-- ChrisBooth - 22 Sep 2008

I just ran into the same problem. Until I have a client willing to pay for me to look at it I'm just going to file it as a bug. M.

I've filed it as TWikibug:Item6031 but, err., Is the table above right now??

-- MartinCleaver - 30 Sep 2008

The table above is right, but the attachment table of the original bug is not.

Closing this after more than 30 days of inactivity. Please feel free to re-open if needed.
