Topic: Search return results - puzzling
I'm still having a few issues with the search functionality:
1. When I search for Tachina fera I would expect a few results but 293 seems a tad excessive and will only confuse readers. Also, surrounding the string with quotation marks, which would usually make the routine search for that specific string, just returns the same 293 values.
2. Each individual row on the search results seems to contain information that's a bit confusing. On my sandbox I return the information in a more user-friendly way, by grouping results by the taxa they occur on - ordered to give the most likely/correct name at the top. Consider this search for "Tachina" which returns a genus, subgenus, accepted / recommended names and junior synonyms: http://nbn-sd-dev.nhm.ac.uk/taxonbrowse … ch=tachina
