  1. Sort results by alphabetical order of surname

    They are in rough alphabetical order at the moment but not strictly, so if you have a lot of results you have to look through a large number if pages.

    • Introduce a privacy/security settings feature

      They need to introduce a privacy/ security settings feature to control/screen some of the information being put on this site. As I was going about adding some of the information, it made me think that the sons/daughters of soldiers who fought in WWI are still alive and at this stage you can add birthday information etc for the children which could cause some problems as you don't seem to be able to remove certain information from certain profiles. Just a thought....

        • Guidance for Entering Service Details

          When entering Military service details unit/rank there are fields eg: Corps/Regiment/Ship, Squadron, Sub-Unit but no guidance as to how to fill these out. Many many users will lack a proper knowledge of what goes where. So examples of how a description of a unit gets converted into a Corp/Squadron/Sub-Unit for example would be very helpful.

          • Brightsolid's Scotlands People documents do not show a usable URL, if URL is required then Brightsolid need to provide a means of linking

            Brightsolid are the partners behind LotFWW and SP since a URL is required for external sources on LotFWW they need to add a means of allowing users to obtain the URL reference to a Scotlands People document. Perhaps via a button on the Scotland's People view image page. Otherwise the pages for Scottish individuals are going to be lacking data.

            • Leave comments on a Life Story

              Sometimes people have something to say that isn’t covered by the fact table. Let members leave public comments on a Life Story so they can comment on the story itself, on other members’ work, or anything else about the Life Story that isn’t backed by evidence.
