HTTP file sorting

Post by james_lin » Thu Jan 06, 2022 6:49 pm

Hi,

I tried to use Everything as a web server to present my files. However, it is sorted by Name as default. How do I make "Date Modified" descending as default setting?

Include sort=date_modified&ascending=0 in the url query.

For example:

http://localhost/?sort=date_modified&ascending=0

The sort is remembered when using the search, but not when browsing folders.

I have put on my TODO list to remember the sort when browsing folders.

Everything 1.5.0.1295a adds the default_sort and default_sort_ascending plugin ini settings.

default_sort can be one of the following:
  • 0 = Name
  • 1 = Path
  • 2 = Size
  • 3 = Date Modified (Default)
Set default_sort_ascending to 1 to sort in ascending order.
Set default_sort_ascending to 0 to sort in descending order (default).

I have made the default sort order date modified descending.

Your plugin settings for Everything 1.5 alpha can be found here:
%APPDATA%\Everything\Plugins-1.5a.ini
