"Thanks for mentoring me, so to speak. So the google spreadsheet keeps things indexed neatly and in alphabetical order.  I can see how that would be better than tagging and adding search page results as an index.  That search page would be…"

"are you presently using your notes feature?  if so, how?, if not, why not use that as the archive (because notes can be interlinked) and rename it Archive (or similar) in the language editor...  its an idea"
