Thanks for your reply . There is another connections instance where the search engines access all the entries so perhaps it would not matter allowing indexing on the advanced search results page when accessed directly. There is another issue which you may be able to clarify. I want to have two links on the advanced-results page, one to a “new search” which should be straightforward but the second labeled “modify your search” . At first I thought a simple back button approach would work however whist this does take you back in Firefox and Chrome it does not do so in IE11 where you are just taken to the advanced search page with no entered data.
