For some time now, and also in the latest version of the server (I have Plex server in Windows, version 220.127.116.1139), sort order in photo library is bugged. 'Sort by name ↑' and 'Sort by name ↓' orders the images exactly as 'Sort by date taken ↑'. Also, as you can see, 'Sort by name' ascending and descending don't change the order.
I'm pretty sure this is a bug in the server and not the viewer app, because I have tried in the Android app and via web with the same results.
This bug makes Plex unusable for many uses, including reading chapters of comics based on a series of images. This is a real example of how Plex show me one chapter I have in my libray when I select 'Order by name' (as far as I know, none of this images have any Exif data):
Even I have tried creating a copy without any properties and personal info (in Windows Explorer, right click in the archives > Properties > Details > Delete properties and personal info), with the same results in Plex.
So… hey Plex people, were you aware of this bug? Are you working in a bugfixed version?
Anyone know a workaround?
Also: Plex doesn't have a bugtracker? Sending bugs via forum doesn't seem appropiate to me.
