Hi Omeka community,
This may be a noobie question, but I have looked high and low for the answer, so it may be usepful to have this in the forum.
I have a site with thousands of items that refer to street addresses. On my resource template I have a special field for sort order which is the street name concatenated with a zero padded house number, so that 3 Cambridge street comes before 1000 Cambridge St.
Theoretically, I could change the default search query to order by this field. This is the sort order that makes most sense.
- What are the files and values I should be looking to adjust to accomplish this?
- Is this something I can do in a Theme?
- Or is it necessary to write a module to over-ride the default search query?
