PageListings and source
DescriptionListings pages are sequenced by an editorial weighting: if a user remembers a source by time period, or by name, they have no way of re-ordering the list. Although source pages are arranged alphabetically, they may be structured by time period but authored in a non-linear sequence; alternatively, later volumes may be more comprehensive than earlier ones.
RecommendAdd in-page options to change the sort order. Configure some sources to be sequenced differently by default.
ExamplesThe Survey of London is being added to but newer volumes currently appear at the bottom of the listings, well below the fold.
|New volumes appear right at the end (large descriptions also don't help scrolling)|
