Sorting would be a great feature addition to Super Favourites. Thanks for considering it and hopefully implementing it.

If you're capable of installing from zip you can try this beta version out:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1155...BMC/sf.zip

This has the sorting as an option in display settings

Got it and it works really well. It will make life easy going forward relating to the sorting of Super Favourites folders. Surprised that sorting has not been requested before. Thanks So Much!

I'm doing something wrong, I can't find isearch xml
I found favourites.xml in
/storage/.xbmc/addons/plugin.program.super.favourites/resources/Search

and it seems to be the right file since it has all the other isearch searches
I placed your code inside and had to delete the empty spaces and I can't see it up.

It probably has lol

Just to point out if you turn off the alpha sorting it will return to the previous order.

Go to SF user data folder and open the folder called S

In there is a favourites.xml file, edit that one

I'm on a roll!

You probably realise but adding the word wallpaper to the google search stuff tends to finds large images that are great as fanart

got it working thanks

its still does something after I type my isearch item.
i.e.
type search term press select
busy
taken to next screen thenn busy icon pings up again

same thing if I search for another item whilst I have isearch list up

Its working though, quite nicely to, I'm able to paste fanart to, nice! but one question, why is it that kodi wants to zoom in? I added fanart two ways one was copy and paste
the other was I saved to local and then chose fanart
both gave same results but goto say we have alot more images to chose from now LOL
good job from me, I think its a keeper Big Grin

Nice one.

I'll look into the busy thing, not really noticed but my machine is quite quick.

SF does a lot of clever stuff to keep the navigation process intuitive so might be something to do with that.

Not sure about the zoom, might be an aspect ratio issue, does it do it in all view modes?

yes all view modes, have you not noticed that yourself?
I do have an old crt tv though lol its aspect ration is 4:3 so that could be it haha

also if you use something like

anime wallpaper 1080p, I think you might get good results and stuff but its nice. Smile
to many choices now haha

I was thinking Sean of this

If I created a folder called, "horror movies" and I wanted a nice background for it it would be more convenient (and hence more likely to be used) if I could bring up context menu - edit super favourite - Choose thumbnail from google images, then keyboard popsup with search term "horror movies" and I can edit to include words like wallpaper or gore or whatever press enter and I can choose

really simple

I did have ruuks addon in mind but really what I been thinking was why not integrate google image search yourself into your addon, you'll have better control over it and also use it more in a way that suits SF's

you've done it with youtube, imdb why not google images? makes sense to me. you did have fun adding imagery I think this could make it fun.

have a look at what imagery you get for "horror movies"

I really like this one

Nice idea again but once again the limited space on the context menu arises again.

I'll think of a way it could be implemented.

One thing I was going to do as add another Google search item to iSearch that automatically adds the word wallpaper

You could make the extra word user configurable, such as stating dimensions also, wallpaper 1080 x 1980
1980
