Thanks for your votes and comments on this issue.
In 6.14 we shipped a brand new search experience for Confluence Server, making it easier to search, filter and find the information you need to keep work moving forward. For more details on these improvements, check out our release notes.
These changes didn’t include the ability to sort search results, but we’re still open to this improvement in the future. We’d urge to try out the new improvements, and let us know whether you’re still in need of this capability.
