Search should index from newest to olderst


Well-known member
Currently when XenForo re-indexes content, it goes from the oldest to newest. This can give the appearance that search is completely down for a very long time as user-profiles of very newest things are indexed last.

By grabbing the entity content type field for a relevent content type, XenForo can reliably get the latest id for that content type. This allows picking a start point and then indexing backwards filling the index with newest stuff first.

I'm aware of at least one 3rd party add-on this would break for. But I consider it a feature not a bug they are forced to correctly implement an XF entity content type field, or not at all.
