Problem with Search Tempest

Post by RIT333 » Sun May 14, 2017 8:00 pm

I have been using search tempest for several years, and recently i noticed that when I do a search, the craigslist results are no longer listed from most recent to oldest. They come out in a random order chronologically.

Is it me, or has search tempest been changed ?

Until a couple days ago, our Single List results were powered by Google. Unfortunately Google just discontinued the API we were using to get those results. Currently we're showing results from Bing instead, which unfortunately doesn't support sorting by date. We're hoping to bring back Google results using a new API within the next couple of weeks, but have a couple wrinkles to work out first.

Also, we strongly recommend everyone try our (relatively) new Direct Results mode. It does allow sort by date, among other features. You can read more about that here: ... ectresults
