Adjust sort priority when sorting by Activity, State, etc.; add Deleted state
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Feature request: As a follow-up request to this request (T6577), what I would really like is to have the WikiDiscover extension sort priority, when sorting by Activity, State, or other column, to sort first alphabetically by the column (i.e., all wikis listed as Open, Closed, Inactive, etc.), then alphabetically by wiki name. Currently, this doesn't happen, as inactive wikis are interfiled within those which are open, so this suggests we're still first sorting by wiki name then by column selected. Essentially, we've done one part of what I was looking for; this is the second

Secondary to this request, currently, deleted wikis are showing as "Open," I believe, so I'm wondering if we can add a new Deleted state here

Thanks.

I am not quite sure I understand your request. I did do the part about adding a deleted state, but I really don't understand the rest, do you mind explaining some more?

I think what @Dmehus is saying is to have the tabs like how meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Special:ManageWiki/extensions has it. Sorting with activity (If the wiki is open/active, inactive, or closed), sort it alphabetically like

apple.miraheze.org
banana.miraheze.org

and so on.

@Universal_Omega Yeah, basically, instead of having the sort be columns in a table, have the sort be drop-down fields up top (like category or language), so only those wikis are displayed, rather than intersorted with all other closed, deleted, inactive, and open wikis. Columns in a table for these types are sub-optimal organizationally.

So to clarify, add another dropdown with state (deleted, active, inactive, etc...) options to sort by? And is that the only dropdown you'd like added?

Yeah, basically. Let me take another look at Special:WikiDiscover. You could maybe add another one for Visibility.

Note that when this is done, we'd no longer need those columns in the actual table, I think. Actually, yeah, we would as I see we still have Category and Language in the table.
