Date added uses your frontend date settings to build the order. If you don't want it built with the days of the week, use a frontend date format that doesn't use the date of the week.

Replying to robertm:

use a frontend date format that doesn't use the date of the week.

Makes sense. But that doesn't solve the problem, because it'd be way more convenient to have the newest stuff sorted to the top, and even if I use all numeric dates it means I have to scroll to the end to get to the new stuff.

Consider this a feature request if you want, but it's certainly not invalid. That particular browse-by filter is begging for a custom sort order to make it user-friendly. Sacrificing readability of dates in the rest of the UI just to get a good sort order in the Date Added filter, while it works, isn't a very user-friendly option.

ok, I found the plugin feature request page on the wiki, it's been moved there.
