Further Search - uses relevance instead of default property for sorting

Hello gurus.

We have defined the search components and are using a standard KM search iview, enabling sorting of search results and enabling further search after a quick search. Default property for sorting is defined as publication date. No problems sorting search results. But when after one search the user starts another in that same window (not the home page), instead of using the default property publication date, it uses relevance. Relevance being the first displayed property of the collection renderer. Why doesn't it uses the publication date for sorting here? Help please.

Search sort property is defined in the search option set.

You need to mention the default sort property in here and that search option should be used in the search

iView that you are mentioning.

Get the view source of the search result having problem and search for the term &SearchPluginName and you

may get the search option which this search is using.

You need to then set the search sort order in that search option
