I'm using Sitecore 9 and SXA 1.7
I am trying to find a way to sort search results with 2 facets without using custom code or having it affect performance speed.
In this case, I have some blog posts that I need to be sorted both by date and by a computed index field I created called Featured, I want the Featured posts to always appear first, and the search results in general to be sorted by date.
I was able to do this by setting the facet to sort by date, and adding the sort by featured in the search result scope.. however, I have noticed that adding any kind of sorting inside the scope causes a big performance issue, as the search results are significantly slower to load once sorting is added.
What I need to know is if there's a way to implement this without having it affect the performance speed so much? and possibly without having to make custom code?
