how to sort albums and sub-albums by name?

hi there, for the photo site i am building i need to sort albums and sub-albums by name alphabetically (as well as images).

sorting images within albums is no problem, but how can i force albums and sub-albums to be alpha sorted by name where they are displayed?

tia for any replies. ;)

Admin -> Albums -> Move, hover mouse over album, click Apply automatic sort order, pick your choice.

Re: how to sort albums and sub-albums by name?

I've just installed Piwigo on shared hosting with a new provider and found this thread.

While the solution above works to update the order of albums, is there any way to set this as a default so you don't need to keep doing it?

As a new setup I'm about to add hundreds of new albums to this site over the next week or two, and having to do this every time I'm done for the day is less than ideal or efficient.

Once you apply an automatic sort order and include sub-albums, why is that not remembered for all new albums created moving forward?

Yeah that would be handy I might have it a go when I do have some time to spare. Now When I know it it is easy. Still I'm automatically syncing some content and it seems silly to login and just do these few klicks.
