Hi Adam,

we have an autocomplete that stops duplicate titles and so we end up with a menu that's potentially thousands of records long. I thought it would be good to have a grouping on the menu screen based on the first letter, which then links to the list for that letter

I guess a custom render could be the way to go. I'll have a look at doing that.

Cheers,

Simon.

Do you mean remove the list step?  The menu is the page that lists all the unique values, and the list is the page that lists all the items.

You can build a custom menu renderer that links through to the abstract pages directly, but what would you do when you actually do have two items with the same title?

I've seen this issue before -- in the case I examined, it looked like the _buffer_order parameter was somehow being lost.  I managed to get it working with the following code in the Items plugin:

in the 'properties_from' function:

	    #af05v 20150512 Workaround for immediate solution to lack of ordering
	    my $order = $session->param('_buffer_order'); 
	    $self->{processor}->{af05v_order} = $order; 


in the perform_search function:

	    my $list = $self->{session}->current_user->owned_eprints_list( %$search, 
# custom_order => $search->{order} 
	    #af05v 20150512 Workaround for immediate solution to lack of ordering
			    custom_order => $self->{processor}->{af05v_order} 
	    ); 

However, I didn't have time to figure out *why* this was happening.  Anyone have any ideas?
