[Solved]: How change default sort order for album viewers
« on: December 29, 2008, 09:48:32 am »

I can't seem to find it anywhere. If I change it by the menu in the albums title then it only changes the sort order for me and I tried http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/faq.htm#changeOrderEdit but it seems it's only for 'while editing'. What should I do to make the albums sort order be by date for all users unless they change it themselves to something else?

Use the 'default sort order' setting in the config page.

Thanks, I genuinely couldn't find it whenever I searched through all the configs.

I have set the default sort order to "date ascending" on the config page.  Well I'm now stumped because what I really want is a sort based on the date that the photo was taken.  What I tracked down is that the date Coppermine is sorting on is the date that the file was FTP'd to Coppermine.

Is there anyway to get Coppermine to sort on the "date picture taken" date?  Any other simple work around's? 

I really don't want to have to rename every file before I upload it and then tell it to sort on filename.

Bummer,  not what I wanted to hear, but not unexpected. 

Thanks for the quick reply
