Separate sort by artist/album and artist/title


Recommended Posts

Currently, the sort by artist option sorts by artist > album > title.  I would like options to choose between artist > title and artist > album > track #.  I think both are better than trying to lump them into one option, as I imagine people who like sorting by artist > album also prefer track numbers, whereas people who like sorting by artist > title want to prioritize individual tracks.

Perhaps all 3 could be made available as options, if you so choose.

A user-definable Category system is another long-standing request, allowing the user to create their own intricate sorting orders in addition to the supplied ones, which would allow exactly what you are asking. I summarised some of the comments on this subject in:

While that sounds awesome, I imagine that will take a bit longer to implement than what I'm asking for, which I think would be a good interim solution, as there are a lot of options already.  Additionally, I think it should still be one of the default options alongside a custom setup, since it's a pretty common distinction to make.

That would be up to Max. Personally, I've always felt a fully customisable system is a better long-term solution rather than spending time adding various ad hoc add-ons upon existing modes, especially as there are quite a few previous requests for other category sorting modes already (e.g. Artists albums to be sorted by Year first, and then by Title - or for Year sorting to include yyyy-mm-dd tags when present).

Yeah yeah absolutely, I am not saying we shouldn't get a modular system - I'm just saying I don't expect it super soon, and I think it would be easier for max to drop in a couple extra presets while he works on the custom thing.
