[Koha] Linking via 830$w

Hi Katrin and Thomas,

as I also followed this discussion with interest, I would add my 2 ct. as to Koha's behaviour regarding traced and untraced series. Horizontal linking to other parts of a series, traced or untraced, makes perfect sense. Yet I wonder, if it could be modified slightly for traced series. Is it possible to show the series title as first result in the result list, followed by the other titles belonging to the series? I find myself scolling endlessly through result lists trying to find the series title - so it would be quite helpful for me to see it as the first result.

Would it be very complicated to configure this, and is it at all possible with Koha?

Thanks in advance and best regards
