Conference talk search results newest to oldest?

I didn't see this answered elsewhere but I realize it may have been. From what I can tell, the search tool used on the main website does not support any type of query ordering. I often find that I want to search for the newest Conference talks on a topic, and generally the results come up with some really awesome talks from the last century (what logic they might be using to come up with the result ordering is a mystery to me). That's not bad, but when I'm looking for the most recent messages regarding that topic, it can be a chore.

Perhaps I'm just missing something? A secret key-code that I can pass in with my key-word?

And if I'm directed to "Use the Feedback link at the bottom of the page" to comment directly to developers, I'm fine with that!

If you use the Gospel Library app for iOS or Android, under the "Topics" tab in the General Conference section, when you choose a topic, the talks are sorted with the newest on top.

Thanks! I was hoping for something like that which I wasn't aware of. I'm glad I can at least use this approach via my phone, not only for personal study, but also for my calling (I am looking for a Conference talk to share as a reference for a sacrament meeting talk that I need to assign, and having the most-recent Conference talks show up is a big help).
