Okay...I would really like to be able to sort my books by the date I posted them.

Everytime I click on resort and choose by post date, they just end up listed alphabetically.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

do they resort at all?  I know when I sort my books they stay with whatever the last method I used.  In fact, I just resorted my TBR shelf from alphabetical to date by descending.

try again, it might have been a temporary glitch or something

It works for me. I keep my shelf shorted by date, descending.

I just double-checked.  I chose resort, the date, and descending, then clicked ok.  They sorted.  Then I sorted by title to be sure the sort worked today (not just a leftover sequence from past sorts), then sorted again by date.  If yours is still not working, you may want to report it as a problem with your account.

No matter if I do ascending or descending, they all are in the same order.

I have the same problem. Sort by date doesn't.

Once I got it to work, but I don't remember how.  It was really hard to post on the "what book has been on your shelf the longest" thread since it generally won't tell me!

Okay, I was playing around, and when I sort it by date, that seems to do the trick, rather than posted, for whatever reason.

Guess date doesn't mean publication date o.O

no it doesn't mean publication date but the date that you posted it to your shelf

I just clicked Posted Books, and then Resort, and sorted by date both ascending and descending. Both worked fine.

Maybe try clearing your cache and cookies.  Your browser might be loading a remembered image of your shelf.  If that doesn't work, you could try a different browser.
