Just so you know, this has been answered before on this list: there is a 
subroutine in VENROOT/catalog_before.cfg called bar_link which generates 
the one-click searches which appear on your sidebar. The above only fetches 
groups and categories for which those links will be built. If you want to 
specify the sorting parameters, either edit the perl in that subroutine, or 
build an advanced search for each record in your cat table, specifying all 
the search terms (including results sorting) there. The bar_link routines 
will be over-ridden in that case.
