We use the Enhanced Search addon.

Currently, search results are ordered by relevance.

Is there a way to either insert the "order by date" option or set search results ordered by date as default without having to use advanced search?

I use by date more. If this is not possible, the other suggestion could be to save the last setting in Advanced. So I search by date and next time I use Quick Search that setting is saved unless I got to Advanced and toggle it back.

We just want to be able to search for a topic and have all the recent threads about it come up with the most recent first.

This is how VBulletin worked for decades for us, how can we get this simple thing to work for us on Xenforo?

Thank you.

I thought this was in Suggestions, that's why I added mine. I see now it is not. I agree it would be nice to have either the way you stated or I.

This addon gives an option to set the default search order to date or relevance.
It can add a bunch of other features too.
