I just need a little guidance as to the correct way to achieve the following.
I am creating a "Members Directory" (not members who have log in etc just a separate membership list).

Basically in the CMS you will add a "Member" they will have name, website, discipline, about paragraph, image.

1> Then what I need to know is how in the front end these can be sorted Alphabetically, and also the option to sort by Discipline.
2> How can i create a search just for these members, i.e. I search for "john smith poet" and this will filter the results.

Currently looking at:
