[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Search or Directions doesn't prioritise nearby locations (#2356)

Search bugs need to be reported to https://github.com/openstreetmap/Nominatim/issues which is the tracker for our geocoding engine.

We do prioritise nearby places though, or at least we pass the search engine the current viewport so that it can do so. I believe it doubles the size of that box and considers anything in that area as "near" rather than doing a full global sort by distance which may be the issue you are seeing.
