Hi,

I have had a search through the forums but cant seem to find a solution to a problem I am having.

My site (curve theme), I have a single category which contains around 200 albums. When I view these on the front page (alblist) they are not sorted alphabetically. I have checked the option in the config settings to show them alphabetically but it doesnt seem to do anything.

I am aware I can manually sort these in the Album Manager screen, but as I said I have about 200 so this would be a real pain!

Is there a way I can do this automatically?

Thanks in advance.

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

Thanks Phill, but that thread isn't exactly what I am trying to do.

When I am actually in the album, I have sorted the pictures (in Config settings) to be sorted by name ascending, which is great and what I want.

My problem is that I have imported around 200 albums using the mass import plugin. These are contained in a single category on the front page. However these are displayed in the order they were imported which appears to be random.

I would like to display them alphabetically.

I can do this by editing the albums table directly in the SQL database (pos column), but I was hoping there was a code change or something I could implement instead to save this manual editing of 200+ records.

Hope that is clearer?

That's a hidden config option since cpg1.5.22. In the Coppermine database, open the config table, search for the row album_sort_order and change it to
Code: [Select]
