Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Maintain sort order when returning to normal answer view

+0
−0

When viewing a specific answer, it has a message above it including a link to return to the normal view:

Message with link to return to the normal view, sorted by Score

If the answer sorting order is changed to "Active", the specific answer stays at the top of the list, overriding the selected order. This is as intended:

Message with link to return to the normal view, sorted by Active

Note that the message wording has now changed from "regardless of its score" to "regardless of its activity". This is also as intended.

However, when following this link, the answer order reverts to the default order (Score):

No message, and the sort order has reverted to Score

Ideally it would reflect whatever order the page was in before following the link. This way I can follow a link to a specific answer, sort the answers by Active, realise this leaves the linked answer at the top, follow the link to return to the normal view, and still see the answers in Active order as requested.
