Solved Movie sets - Movies in wrong order "sorttitle" in nfo files is not respected
#1
Hello,
I use many movie sets. All my files are manually tagged with local *.nfo files. All set files are tagged like this:
Quote:<originaltitle>Ice Age</originaltitle>
  <set>
    <name>Ice Age</name>
    <sorttitle>Ice Age 10</sorttitle>
  </set>

But in Kodi/Amber Skin all movie sets entries are sorted by year by default.

I can change to sort by title, but then they are sorted alphabetically, not by "sortname" entry in nfo. What do I have to do to make the "sorttitle" entry work?

That is wrong. There is no sort title for movie sets.

Please have a look at the sample movie nfo file in the green box which shows how to correctly use <sorttitle>... https://kodi.wiki/view/NFO_files/Templat...e_Template

<originaltitle>Ice Age</originaltitle>
<sorttitle>Ice Age 10</sorttitle>
<set>
<name>Ice Age</name>
<overview>A series of animated films centering on a group of mammals surviving the Paleolithic ice age</overview>
</set>

@cyberman , if the sort title is loaded correctly in the db for the movies in the set (either through th NFO or editing the sort title directly in Kodi), then when sorting by title, the sort title will be used.  Here is an example:

This is sorted by Title, but, since each movie has a sort title defined (Star Wars 1 through Star Wars 9), then they are correctly shown ordered by the sort title.

Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.  Thanks.
