I have a dataset that has a field called Article_Published_Date and it is a string which would have the following type of value Wed, 6 Dec 2017 22:37:05 GMT. How can I create a query to find all the oldest of newest items based on the value within Article_Published_Date.
By design Algolia doesn’t support ISO dates format. If you want to filter on dates, you need to put the dates as timestamps.

Does this answer your question?
thanks yes it helps it makes some stuff a lil more difficult for me to do though
