cpg1.5.42 maintenance release - upgrade recommended
The Coppermine development team is releasing an update for Coppermine in order to fix several minor issues. All fixes are not security critical, so if your gallery is running fine with cpg1.5.36, cpg1.5.38 or cpg1.5.40 you don't need to upgrade. If you are running an older version than cpg1.5.36, you must update to this latest version as soon as possible because of the security impact!

Sort order of Categories and Albums
« on: June 27, 2012, 11:34:43 PM »

Hi Andre,

I have a brilliant, brilliant idea for you!  In future versions of Coppermine, you can ask if the user wants his categories and albums alphabetically sorted (alphabetical-ascending, alphabetical-descending).  I spend so much time manually sorting my albums, when all I want is for them to be alphabetically sorted  :o

Currently in Coppermine, you ask in Config > Albums if Categories should be alphabetically sorted.  (See attached)  But you should also ask for albums, since those are another list that many users may want to be auto-sorted. 

Additionally, perhaps you should move the option for alphabetical sorting from the Config menu to "Files" > "Categories" or "Files" > "Album" menus, since those would be the more 'logical' places to ask about ordering.

Just a thought. 

Joel

albums alphabetically sorted
It's already on my TODO list for cpg1.6.x and maybe also as a hidden config option for cpg1.5.x.

Added config option for cpg1.6.x and hidden feature for cpg1.5.x in SVN revision 8453.

Additionally, I plan to add some user defined sort order like it's done for thumbnails and each a config option to toggle that feature.

Oh dear god, I hope you're planning to release cpg1.6.x soon ... if only so I can use this option.  So much time wasted on reordering albums manually.   :o

1.6 is a long way off at the moment. Please look at the code changes Andre has made as they allow you to do just what you are after.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Added [..] hidden feature for cpg1.5.x in SVN revision 8453.

If you don't need this feature urgently, just wait for the release of cpg1.5.22 (which will be released soon).

Okay.  Whoa, let's take a step back.  Apparently the option is hidden ... so how can I toggle it?

You have to edit the config value directly in your MySQL database with a tool like PHPMyAdmin.

Okay, so I think I got to the config value via PHPMyAdmin ... album_sort_order = pa.  What should it be set to, or what are the other choices?

Possibilities:
Code: (trunk/cpg1.6.x/include/admin.inc.php) [Select]
    'album_sort_order' => array(
      'type'          => 'select',
      'default_value' => 'pa',
      'help_link'     => 'f=configuration.htm&as=admin_album_sort_order_start&ae=admin_album_sort_order_end',
      'options'       => array('ta' => $lang_admin_php['title_a'],
                           'td' => $lang_admin_php['title_d'],
                           'da' => $lang_admin_php['date_a'],
                           'dd' => $lang_admin_php['date_d'],
                           'pa' => $lang_admin_php['pos_a'],
                           'pd' => $lang_admin_php['pos_d'],
                         ),
    ),

So you can sort by title, date and position each ascending and descending.
