Album sort order not working on albums itself

Hi Piwigo support and forum members,

It might be that there is a bug in the sort order function.

How to replicate:
1. Place directories (starting with numbers i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and photos in ./galleries/
2. Synchronize in Piwigo, this creates albums out of the directories
3. Now try to sort in Piwigo... The sort function doesn't apply to the albums!

Directory structure I used:
+Bacu
|-2001
|-2002
|-2003
|-2004

Albums show up in Piwigo as e.g. 2003, 2002, 2004, 2001.
Hitting the "Sort Photo Title", doesn't result in order: 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004.

Is there anything else to consider?
Thank you for your time!

Piwigo version: 2.6.3
PHP version:
MySQL version:
Piwigo URL: http://www.benhup.com/

Best regards,
Ben

Re: Album sort order not working on albums itself

Hi

what do you mean by "try to sort in Piwigo" ?

the parameters in Configuration->Options and the switch box on public part apply to photos ONLY

albums are sorted manually (or automatically by alphabetic order) in Albums->Manage, nothing more

that's limited, we know it

and please give the url of your Piwigo gallery, we don't really care about your website :)

Re: Album sort order not working on albums itself

Hi Mistic100,

Thank you for the swift reply.

"Administration: Albums->Manage" did the trick!

I think you just answered my question. (ad-hoc) Sorting applies to photos only.
With ad-hoc I mean clicking the icon with "letters A and Z with the arrow next to it".
So when you have sub-albums and photos in an album... Only the photos are sorted the way you have chosen. The sub-albums aren't sorted along with it.

What would be really neat:
You could compare it with sorting in Windows: sort on name, then the directories are sorted alphabetically on top and then the files are sorted alphabetically beneath the directories in one big list.

Thanks for your answer!

I also had a question about removing the "Contact webmaster" e-mail address on the botom right of every page. Of course I support Piwigo: "Powered by Piwigo" should stay.
Any neat piece of code for local/config/config.inc.php to disable "Contact webmaster" link?

Thanks again!

Best regards,
Ben

Re: Album sort order not working on albums itself

Well, primarily:
Sorting by NAME.

Secondly, as Tadjio states:

Bug 0002809 [albums] Sort by Date

Thanks for considering!

And with "ad-hoc sort", I mean: see the attached image in this post.

Re: Album sort order not working on albums itself

My suggestion for "Sort Albums by Date" is based on my experience with Fotopic (and Pikfu).

There are many ex-fotopic users who may not have raised their voices!

As you can see in the bug report, I did suggest a mechanism as to "how to sort by date"...

Re: Album sort order not working on albums itself

Hi Guys,

I have "just" migrated over from gallery3 to Piwigo, and so far I'm really happy. As I'm 100% sync files from the harddrive locally, and not uploading files over the API/APP/Webpage, each new album is put at the back of the order. If I then apply the sort album Z-to-A, and apply this to the sub-folders it cleans up everything.
But can we have a setting to set the Album sort order by default each time a sync has been done?

I've seen that a bug has been files back in 2012, so I guess a lot has happened!

The link to the galleries in case you like to check some stuff, but it should be in order as I clean it up manually:
https://www.we-go.ch/gallery
and
https://gischig.com/gallery

running Piwigo: 2.10.1 (just upraded)

and again, great gallery

Re: Album sort order not working on albums itself

Hi,

I would also like to second the earlier request of being able to sort Albums by date. In my particular case, I would like it sorted in the reverse order.

The way I organize the gallery is

2019
   December Album 3
   December Album 2
   December Album 1
   January Album 2
   January Album 1
2018
   September Album 1
   August Album 2
   August Album 1
   March Album 2
   March Album 1

Those are not the actual album names, but you get the idea that I would Albums sorted reverse chronologically so that people see the latest at the top.

I am trying to simulate this by uploading the albums in the reverse chronological order - i.e. upload December Album 3 and then December Album 2 etc. However, the default sorting seems to be to show the newest albums first and thus, I get January Album 1 and then January Album 2 etc.

I can reverse this upload order, but it would be nice if we had more options.

Regarding the date for the album - I would use the uploaded date as a proxy and not rely on the date of the underlying photos.

Thanks,
Sridhar

How could I do this?
