Subject Re: Sorting question
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2016 16:42:18 GMT
Specifically, what drives the position in the list?  Is it arbitrary or is
it driven by some piece of data?

If data-driven - code could do the sorting based on that data...  separate
from SOLR...

Alternatively, if the data point exists in SOLR, a "sub-query" might be
used to get the right sort order on the items returned by the "main"
search...  Possibly without having to resort to the clunky-feeling listpos
multivalued field...
