[SOLVED] alphabetical sorting performers

Post by haagen »

If I sort all songs alphabetically by the name of the performer, it happens that a certain performer is sorted incorrectly. Take The Bobbettes for example: these are sometimes sorted under the B (and there is also The Bobbettes) and sometimes under the T as The Bobbettes. All properties of the file mention The Bobbettes and not Bobbettes. If I sort everything based on the filename, everything is sorted correctly. This error only occurs based on the artist. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Can you share screenshots of what you see: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... =1&t=97733 and which build (Help > About) are you using?

Screenshot doesn't show what you're sorting on, but shows that the sort is correct. This is controlled by Ignore prefixes under Tools > Options > Fields: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... Fields/5.0

Note that the current build is 2418: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 86639&sd=d
