Drupal 7.18 w/ Views 7.x-3.8 user here.
I have a view set up that consists of rows of objects, which have names and 'yes/no' properties. By default, it is sorted alphabetically by object name. I want to allow the user to be able to sort through the view using the various properties, but to then have those sorted results be alphabetized for them post-hoc. Currently, when the user sorts through the view using property X (with either 'yes' or 'no' content), the objects seem to be retrieved based on their location in the database table, or some other factor. Either way, they are in no way alphabetical which means that this view of 500+ results is impractical to sort in this fashion.
So, is it possible to set up a sort mechanism where the results are (1) sorted by property into their respective 'yes'/'no' groups (or any other groups with identical content for that matter) and then (2) alphabetized?
To demonstrate what I mean, I currently have something like this:
NAME PROPERTYX Alpha yes Beta no Delta yes Epsilon no Gamma yes
Which when sorted using PROPERTYX (let's say descending), might return something like:
NAME PROPERTYX Delta yes Alpha yes Gamma yes Epsilon no Beta no
(As I said, I suppose this random order is based on the object's actual location in the database table.)
When the desired output would be:
NAME PROPERTYX Alpha yes Delta yes Gamma yes Beta no Epsilon no
Can this be accomplished somehow?
