To Reproduce1) Archival descriptions
- Navigate to Browse > Archival descriptions and sort Alphabetically
- Look at first page of results. Jump to last page of results
- first page results: Go from A___, to R___ to "A___ ... then later in page count, back to A___
- last page results: Include letters with accents, such as É___
- Go to Browse > Institutions and sort Alphabetically. Look at results.
Resulting error: First page displays 2 results starting with C__ mixed in with the A__ results
This is difficult, since the error may be a result of some kind of data import issue. However, one would expect at least that the R__ results in the first page of the Browse archival description page, and the C__ results on the first page of Browse institutions, would appear in the right place.
- Accents do not push results to the end of the sort order, but appear in order, so that "E__" and "É__" results would appear together, for example
- When the first character is a symbol (such as: [, (, ", ', etc.) they are excluded from consideration in the sort order.
This has been filed as an issue for consideration in 2.0, since the primary errors may be a result of some kind of data issue and not the application itself, and because the intelligent sort options (accents, special characters) border on the inclusion of a new feature.
