it would be nice to have an option to sort the albums on the artist level by date and not alphabetically.

and have some sort of collapsed album display in the artist view where the titles are expandable only when clicked.
especialy for audiobooks with a lot of parts the page gets quite crowded.

Sorry for the necrobump but is there anyway to sort albums chronologically at this point?  Several of the artists on my server have many albums and it's kind off odd with it as is.

Why not edit the album and put the date in the sort order like yyyymmdd. Or something like artist name - year.

Yeah, I manually edit all my albums and change the sort title to the year. It's a pain because I have thousands of albums, but It's how I want them to be sorted, so I do it as I add them which makes it not quite so cumbersome. Just tedious. lol

You changed your whole collection just for that ?!! What will you do when the sort by date will be available ? Change again ? No, that's not the solution, the web application must manage it properly.

 

I'll wait lol, i'm not crazy :D

Sorry ... but i am not able to access the post/link.

Any news on this topic? I am also interested to sort all albums of an artist in a chronological way.

 

To be honest: I have expected this functionality as a standard feature ... :unsure:

I'd like to see this feature too, plus the ability to treat multi disc sets as a single album.

Just started adding music to Plex.  This annoys me too.  I would like to be able to sort albums by year. I'm not looking forward to entering in a sort order name for every album.

it looks like the artist view will now list the albums by date
