The sorting order is not synced to the Cloud.

Its not entirely correct that sorting order is not synced to the cloud. I do my sorting in the desktop app, and this sorting is present and correct when I log in to the online CC Lightroom version. If the sorting is not synced, as you state, then the online CC app would not reflect this either. No?
Are you using Classic CC or the new CC?
You posted in the Classic Forum.
I use Classic CC. I just wanted to confirm if the sorting in new CC was reflected when logging in, which it is. So sorting is synced. This is an issue with sorting in published collections, private or public.
Your posts are confusing - which is not entirely your fault! Please use Adobe's exact product names, not "the desktop app" or "the online CC app".
Custom order is synced from Lr Classic to Lr Web, but you just have to set it again in the browser. But, like far too much other metadata, other sort orders are not synced.
Ok, so this my situation, just to clarify in case my initial posts were confusing.
I cull and Edit in Lightroom CC Classic. I always sort by shooting date from oldest to newest. So my sorting is chronological. When I create collections and subsequently publish the collections through the Lightroom CC Classic sharing links, this sorting is maintained within Lightroom CC Classic. And with previously shared collections, this sorting (oldest to newest), has been maintained in the shared collections online as well.
However, as of yesterday the default sorting is no longer maintained for the collection I created. My earlier shared collections are not affected by this.
I might be somewhat dim, but something here doesnt add up when taking into account my previously shared collections. These DO maintain proper sorting (oldest to newest), but newer collections do not, once they are published online.
