#704 Order by DESC


When you browse results, it would be very handful if you
have 2 links for sorting order: ASC and DESC. I
personally sort much more times in DESC order, so I
must reload the page 2 times or open the sql window to
add the sorting order manually.

Thank you.

    i think this would be very useful.
    if you did not sort yet, there should be 2 arrows, one up
    and one down next to each fieldname at the top of the result
    aftter you started sorting, all other arrows vanish

    you should give this topic a more descriptive name like
    "2 arrows for Order by DESC and ASC in result-view"
    or so
    and give it a higher priority or

    I would much rather have phpmyadmin store the last way you sorted your table somewhere, so next time you log in, it is in that same order. Almost every single table I look at I want that table in a certain order, and adding this feature would defiantly help!

    You can configure it using $cfg['Order'], per user settings will be possible as well since 3.4.
