Under settings / Appearance / File lists / I have the button clicked that states ignore articles when sorting eg The; yet when I go into Movies / titles/ my movies are sorted with the word the, example: Arrival The arrival Associate The Axe Is there something that I can do to stop this from happening in this area. Under Video / Files they are sorted without "the"

I believe "2.3.4 sorttokens" is what you're looking for.

So you want it to say something like

Axe, The

instead of

The Axe

?

I don't think that's currently possible, but I'm not entirely sure. XBMC/Kodi can identify the sort token and ignore it for sorting purposes, but I'm not sure about altering the displayed title using sort tokens.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Well, if you're using the default Confluence skin.

Settings > Appearance > Skin > File Lists > Ignore articles when sorting (e.g. "the")

Make sure that's checked.

That will only change the order. It won't change how the title is displayed.
