I have a list of blogs, and I'm using the Search Results component to render them. I need to order them by date: specifically, to show the most recent ones first, so they'd be ordered newest date first.

Is there a way to do this without using the "sorting" SXA component? Maybe using something specific in the Scope query?

I've already checked this answer Sitecore SXA Search Result Sorting by date where they use the SXA sorting rendering to accomplish this,but it's not what i need.

Yes, you can. Search Results rendering has Default sort order setting in the Control Properties:

Those configurations as you probably already know are stored under this item /sitecore/content/Tenant/Site/Data/Search/Sort Results. Take a look:

  • I'd created a "Date Facet" and a "Date Desc sorting" connected to it, but i hadn't noticed I can choose it from the settings of the "Search Results rendering" itself, rather than only in the "SXA sorting rendering", thank you! May 22, 2018 at 13:21
