TL:DR; How do I add a custom sorting to Craft?
I am currently building a system which is very tag-centric. I am rebuilding my side project in CraftCMS (https://email.subscribeto.at/) which was custom PHP as a prototype.
Entries are tagged with one or more categories, then on the front-end the user can search for categories and the results are returned.
Currently, the results can be sorted by "relevance" which I would like to replicate on CraftCMS.
I tried to use
.search() as it has a
score, however this score is not what I want as it is not additive. I want to search with
OR but for the score to be additive.
For example, if I have 2 entries, one with tags "a" and on with "a, b" and I search for "a, b", the first one has a score of 50 (as 100% of it's tags match 50% of the search) and the second a score of 17 (not sure how it gets this, would expect 100%)
.search seems a bit fragile when I could us
I have a local module installed for some overrides already, so my question is:
How would I add a custom property to each entry and then order by that?
Thanks in advance for your help
