Whenever a page x containing a link to page y is updated, and you open page y and look at the backlinks, you’ll find page x at the bottom of the list. This is quite annoying. It would make sense to keep the recently updated page at the top instead of the opposite. Is this by design or is this a bug?
There will be ways to sort backlink results in 0.8.9.
For the time being, I wouldn’t consider it a bug, because there’s no intended sort order.
