I am unclear on the sorting functionality with Sitefinity-defined widgets.
1) Modified the MVC list widget that SF created when I created a given content type.
2) Added this widget to a page, and selected the Edit option of the widget.
3) On the List Settings tab, I selected one of the options in the Sort drop-down list. The list contained options such as "Last published, Last modified, Buy Title, As set manually, As set in Advanced mode...".
4) Immediately after closing the widget-editor window, the page displayed an error. When I checked the logs, I saw a null object reference listed.
My understanding from the previous form posts related to this -- all of which seem to be no more recent than 2012 -- was that there was in fact no sort-setting capability. Now, however (I am on Sitefinity 9.1), there appears to be a sort-setting capability that does not work. Is there a reason for this?
This is one of the most basic features of any list control...I am amazed that a) you had to add it as recently as 2012/13, and that it breaks out of the box in the current version.
