new format was introduced that has a dark background instead of the light background. While that is visually appealing, the new pages are now static. The old pages that contained statistics, allowed you to click the column heading to sort by that column. Clicking once would sort from highest to lowest, and clicking again would sort from lowest to highest. Now there is no sort capability. Again they are non-functional static pages that are pretty much useless.

Which tables are you talking about?
The "Top Participants", "Top Teams" and "Top Computers" are all sortable by either "Total Credit" or "Recent Average Credit" - with highest at the top of the list (to sort with lowest at top would be fairly meaningless because there are a substantial number of entries with very low or zero, and one may have to page through many page of zero to get to a non-zero entry.

No need to shout.

As you have found there is no way to re-sort the team members into anything other than the default highest RAC first, and as far as I'm aware this has always been the case :-(
As this is a BOINC matter it would be worth raising the matter with the BOINC development team, and be very precise in the way you word your request, giving details of what you want to achieve and not ranting, and don't be surprised if they take a very long time to respond to you.

Alternatively you could venture into the source code for the BOINC client & manager, (it is open source, and a few folks have done mods for their own purposes) work out what needs to be done and solve it for yourself - HOWEVER, I would suggest that would be a good way to develop a serious headache as much of the code is poorly documented and structured and certainly not for the faint hearted. That said I have a feeling the sorting is done server-side so may not be possible to do locally without a fair bit of other work to pull the whole list over before doing the sort.

It is done on the server. The web-page code isn't as bad as the C++ client and server spaghetti, but you would need a good working knowledge of PHP (to manage the web page layout and controls) and MySQL (for the queries which supply the sorted lists requested). There are lots of improvements to be made, and the team might even accept a comprehensive set if they didn't have to write them themselves. But it'll be a low priority for now.
