With more dynamic web, an option to sort the results by date can be very useful.

Be it a search for a political leader, a programmers code help, latest softwares, movie reviews... whenever a user is seeking solutions - an option to view the latest results can be very useful.

I don't see any menu option to sort on my iPad DDG. This is an old post so perhaps the sort is somewhere else now?

I did try d:s on this search:
new zealand ivory petition s:d

But it yields very low quality results.

I'd love to access the regular algorithm, but restricting results to the last X months.

Thank for pointing out that there is already an option to sort results by date. I was particularly looking for that very option. It works wonderfully.

I arrived at this page as I started looking for some way to sort results and thus clicked on More >> Goodies. As I went through list, in the end it said "If you have an idea for something new, please suggest it or go for it!" and I ended up suggesting it here.

However, it solves the purpose. Thanks :).
