Author Topic: Order By %year%/%track% instead of discumber in album cover view  (Read 598 times)

I catalog my music by recording date. Originally I had the worded date as a subheader and assigned a discnumber to each session as the album cover view splits the tracks of a disc into 'paragrahed' sections within an album.

I am now also tagging the formatted date into year.

Is there a way to sort by year/track instead of discnumber/track within an album? I have tried messing around with custom sorting to no avail.

No, the date is applied to the whole album so unless you included Date in your album definition (which would break it into multiple albums) this probably won't work

The info in this thread might be relevant to what you're trying to do:

Whether accidental or by design, it seems some views will always sort tracks by Disc#/Track# regardless of any custom sorting settings.
Bee excellent to each other...
