iOS App - Sorting by name not working for photo libraries

edited January 5 in iOS

Did anyone also notice that the sorting by name is not working correctly in the iOS apps for iPhone and iPad?
When you click "sort" and then "name" the folders should either sort ascending or descending (shown in the app by the little upward or downward arrow) but there is no actual change in the sorting...

    This will be fixed in the next 1.12.1 server release due out in a couple weeks. Thanks for posting!

    works for me when I'm in a library view. when changing the view to Folders, I cannot sort at all (always listed alphabetically from A to Z).

    just verified on my iPad.

    Thank you for your input. I was talking about the "folders view" (in German it is called "Gitteransicht" in Plex). There the sorting is not working if you press the "sort" botton (sort ascending or descending).

  • tom80Htom80H Members, Plex Pass Posts: 2,272 Plex Pass

    "Gitteransicht" isn't folders, folders is "Ordneransicht". ;)
    as stated above... sorting in "Gitteransicht" works perfectly fine on my iPad (I've just been sorting it back and forth several times -- also with some of the other sort options; version 4.23).
    Which version of the iOS Plex client do you have installed?

  • MkeylerMkeyler Members, Plex Pass Posts: 14 Plex Pass

    Thank you for clearing this up.
    So my "Gitteransicht" (whatever this is in the english version of the PLEX app) is definitely only sorting the containing folders from A to Z and not from Z to A. Also when you change from ascending or descending in the "sort" menu. I attached 2 pictures.
    This problem exists on the iOS app for iPhone and iPad.
    Plex version on iPhone X is: 4.23 (newest from 2 days ago) and this bug has been there forever.

    that's an essential information... I only checked this for movies, tv shows and music but not for photos.
    sorry -- currently got no photos in Plex so I cannot double-check.

  • MkeylerMkeyler Members, Plex Pass Posts: 14 Plex Pass

    I think a lot of people do not use the "photo" library, and this is why this was problem never spotted. Maybe I (we) am lucky and someone from the devs will acknowledge the problem and fix it :-)
    And yes, I am only talking about the "PHOTO" section....

  • tom80Htom80H Members, Plex Pass Posts: 2,272 Plex Pass

    maybe you can edit the title of your post by dropping the "correctly" and adding "for photos" ;)

    Good idea. Done!

    The sorting by "name" is also not working in the web frontend of Plex. So I think this problem is bigger then iOS.
    I am only talking about PICTURE libraries!!!

    Next server-update (1.12.0.4829). Still no fix.

  • MkeylerMkeyler Members, Plex Pass Posts: 14 Plex Pass

    I know. Let's hope some developer will see this. I am sure the fix would be quite easy (sorting ascending and descending).

    Thank you randhawk for answering.
    I am really looking forward to this fix. And I believe this will solve the iOS issue with sorting the photo albums as well.

    My I ask you or another developer to look at this "problem" as well: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/302461/ios-apps-black-background-possbile-in-picture-mode
