KK :unsure: 8th March 2006 at 10:57 am #4083 rpeddeParticipant Yup. It’s on my wishlist too. I was going to make it something like: option limit 50 option sort fname option direction ascending year=2006 and path="sundayschool" Or something. 19th March 2006 at 5:54 pm #4084 triParticipant Please allow multiple sort directives. Getting playlist sorted album by album needs something like: "order by songs.artist,songs.album,songs.disc,songs.track" which I actually hardcoded into my version of db-sql.c smart playlist handling. Does its work nicely especially if the compilation concatenating is enabled. – .-. .. 19th March 2006 at 5:56 pm #4085 triParticipant The Code box in my message above appears empty in my Firefox even though the preview showed it nicely. Anyways, it should be: “order by songs.artist,songs.album,songs.disc,songs.track” – .-. .. 20th March 2006 at 12:43 pm #4086 rpeddeParticipant Yeah, there will be multiple fields. Has to. I can’t really think of a playlist that would be sorted in less than three fields anyway. And sometimes in different directions.
