Homepage Search Bar Results Order
« on: Friday 11 September 20 12:38 BST (UK) »
When searching a name or word using the main search function the results don't seem to offer date order, instead they look like relevancy or so I think.
Why isn't there a date order for the results using this function?
Sometimes the results can have hundreds of pages.

Longson -

Townley -
