Least Relevant Search Results First!

I’ve just responded to another post after noticing a problem with search results with 1.3.1 but though this warranted a seperate thread because if this is the issue I think it is then its a pretty big problem from a site conversion perspective.

It seems that when you use the search box the results produced are displayed and listed by relevance but its seems that by default they are ordered with the LEAST RELEVANT results coming first.

Does anyone know how to reverse this order so the most relevant results are shown first??????

See this: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/45262/#t160269
Add hidden fields to the mini form.

I have tried customising the Toolbar.php file but the problem with this is it also effects the product listing toolbar. And I, and no doubt most people need the products to sort asc and the search to sort desc.

You can solve this problem using extension Sphinx Search Ultimate http://mirasvit.com/magento-extensions/sphinx-search-ultimate.html. In addition to this extension of has a many functions, greatly improves the quality and relevance of search results.
