I searched and didn't see this covered before although I thought I saw a post about it.

 

My trailer sort order is reverse alphabetical even though I changed it to descending release date. I thought maybe Y-Trailers was the issue so I uninstalled then a Library Scan triggered (May be on a schedule of maybe triggered by uninstalling Y-Trailers)

 

At any rate, the sort order is still not what I expect to see.

You can't change the sort order on the home screen, it's only for the screen where you charged it.

I'm sorry, @Luke

I'm not quite understanding what you mean.

Thanks!

So I set it for Release Date Descending in each folder (Netflix, Blu-Ray, etc) and did a full library scan. It is still by Descending alphabet.

I'm not sure where else to make this sort order setting.

I'm usually pretty good at figuring stuff out but I'm being dense this time..

Thanks

And were are you seeing the wrong order?  It is not the same page where you set the sort order, correct?  Those other pages have there own query (ie Home Screen-Latest Trailers).

 

But there is still something wrong as your Latest Trailers would appear broken to me.

The sorting only applies to that page.  I believe Home Screen section have there own queries, independent of those pages.  (list.html does not equal home.html)

So where do I set the sorting for the trailers on the home screen that are in Descending Alphabetical?

You can not set this.  To me you have a defect in your installation as it should be doing this by default (release date-descending).

 

What dateadded and releasedate information is shown for those items shown in Latest trailers?

These must be trailers from Archived Trailers? This is what I see on the Media Information Page for example:

 

Attached File  Yogi a.PNG   1MB   5 downloads

 

Attached File  Yogi b.PNG   393.81KB   5 downloads

 

There is no DateAdded or ReleaseDate shown. Where else would I look for this information?

Click "edit metadata" on the trailer.

 

This makes since now.  Did you must just enable Archived Trailers?

 

I just did and now my Latest trailers are all old traiers. Pretty sure everything on the Home Screen is queried by Date Added, all the Archived Trailers have the newest date added.

@Happy2Play thanks for helping sort this.

How to undo it?

I did recently check the Archive Trailers check box. Wish I knew this would be the result.. makes sense that the end of the alphabet is first now as those were probably pulled last.

@Luke any way to expose the settings for this or revise the logic? Any way to revert?

Thanks!

Mobile web client Chrome on Android with either mobile or desktop site checked in settings.. I'll try in a browser on my PC when I get home.

I don't think there is a easy way around this. 

 

I opened the database, went to the MediaItems table and filtered type column with "10" for trailers, then went to the Premieredate column and sorted that column and copied all the items with dates and pasted them in the datecreated column.  So now all the trailers have Release date for DateAdded.

Ran out of time to check last night. I'll try for tonight.

I run a beta server on a separate machine but with the same library and on there my trailers are fine.

I'm not afraid to do this in notepad++ if more detailed instructions are provided.

Sorry information only reside in the database.  So you would need a database browser program like SQLiteDatabaseBrowser.
 
 
Filter type "10", sort "premieredate" column, select those dates, copy (crtl+c), go to "datecreated" first item and paste (ctrl+v)

Ensure you backup your library.db before doing any edits.
 
This is what the TimeLord plugins do, but only applies to Movies and Shows.  We could ask @BeppoMonkeyBoy to add Trailers also.
