Sorting searches with OJS

Postby Antoniotb » Wed Feb 12, 2014 4:42 am

We are evaluate wheter use OJS to publish our journal.
Is it possible to sort the search results of the journal/site (by author, year, volume or title)? I have read ( ... _made_easy ) that some tables can now also be sorted by column: simply click the hyperlinked column title and the table will be sorted according to that column... It is possible in the general search, or only in editor view? Any journal implemented it?

Best wishes,

Hi Antonio,

The built-in MySQL-backed search does not support sorting and is unlikely to in the near future; you might look instead at the Lucene/SOLR-backed search, which is implemented as a plugin and shipped with OJS. Note that you'll need to run a Lucene server in order to use this. See plugins/generic/lucene/README for details.
