Subject [greenstone-users] cross-collection search results - ver 2.8
Hello,

Well here is another sorting question - we have several collections that
we want users to cross search. My question is that within the individual
collection I was able to "sort" the results alphabetically. But once I
select the "cross-collection search" feature, when you do a search in the
"all" search mode - the results are not in alpha order. So here lies my
problem, is it possible to sort it in alpha order in AND/OR have it group
by collection.

i.e. Smith, John - Doe, Jane
Vital Statistics Collection

Smith, John
World War I Service Records

Smith, Lance - Doe, Jane
Vital Statistics Collection

Smith, Mark
Passenger Manifest Collection

Smith, Nancy
Passenger Manifest Collection


This is basically what we would like users to see in their search for
"Smith".

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!
