      Description

      Looking for an answer to one of my sites' problems, I found this ticket:

      https://jira.duraspace.org/browse/ISLANDORA-1295

      and discussion: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/islandora/-MUlEYIj9_E/discussion

      all from 2015. The ticket was closed as "answered" (though "won't fix" might apply more?); nothing was changed. I would like to reopen this discussion.

      One of my sites is exclusively a collection of newspaper issues from a single newspaper. The administrator wants advanced search, and wants the title available as a field in advanced search, but does not want the title to be the choice that is selected by default when the user goes to the advanced search page.

      However, IF a title field is set as one of the advanced search options, it is selected, no matter what order they appear in the select list. There is no place to change this default.

      Proposing that this be changed, either to (a) the first field in the Advanced Search block, or (b) an additional configuration option.

      (a) might be easiest to do, and would suffice.
