Hello world,

I'd like to sort albums of an artist by year, not alphabetically. I got 30 albums of Bruce Springsteen, so i'd like to have the 70s stuff before newer material when I browse by artist. Is there a way to do this in Slimserver?


Kind regards :-)

In SC7, yes.

There is a little "Sort by" with a choice of Album / Year, Album / Year, Artist, Album / etc at the top of the browse page.

"Year, Album" would probably be what you want.

Hi.


In SC7, yes.

This is good news. Now one more question: What the eff is "SC7"?


Greetings!

Hasn't this also been in SlimServer 6.x for quite a while?

But note that the option only applies to the web interface. The remote interface offers no way to do this, although it looks like it might happen in our lifetime.
