Is it possible to create a block that allows users to sort the nodes in a view? I've only been able to achieve this in a page using the menu in page settings but so far haven't had any luck with blocks. The thing is I need the block to appear on most of the site's pages. Any ideas...?
All you need to do is set up the exposed filters and then click Exposed form in block in the Basic Settings. This will then give you a block to use.
There is hidden trick although "Exposed filters will not appear on block displays unless 'Use Ajax' is set to TRUE"
