@Happy2Play

 

Example:

I use sort titles to display these movies together:

 

- Raiders of the Lost Ark
- Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

 

Without sort title the first movie displays under "R" and the other under "I". But I want them to be display together.

I see how this example would work, but to me that is what collections are for.  And what are you sorting Bumblebee to?  But I would never look for Bumblebee in "T" though.

 

But as a feature request I guess anything is possible in the future.

I understand your point. But I use the sort title as a replacement to collections to keep it simple.

 

Yes, Bumblebee is kind of a weird example and to look for it under "T" is not perfect. But everybody has their own system... maybe I will switch to collections if I have the time...

 

Regardless, giving the option to incorporate the sort title in search results may be an asset to some users maybe... just an idea.

 

CHEERS

I believe "Original Title" is used for searching, so you could enter the information there. It's not displayed anywhere I'm aware of, so it won't look "wrong" or anything.

 

I have Lucky Number Sleven, which was released here as The Wrong Man, and Airplane!, released here as Flying High! I have their Australian titles as the Title, and their US titles as the Original Title, and they show up when I search for either.

Example:

I use sort titles to display these movies together and in the correct order:

 

- Raiders of the Lost Ark
- Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

 

Without sort title the first movie displays under "R" and the other under "I". But I want them to be display together.

 

Other example:

 

Title / original Title:

 

Transformers
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Transformers: Age of Extinction
Transformers: The Last Knight
Bumblebee

Sort titles:
Transformers 1
Transformers 2
Transformers 3
Transformers 4
Transformers 5
Transformers 6

 

So they are in the correct order and all together.

Exactly. Just put ‘Bumblebee AKA Transformers 6’ in original title field and it will show up in search. That’s what I do with the alternative titles present. Sort title doesn’t have to do anything with the search results.

Thanks for the inputs. But I like to use the original title field for the actual original title as intended.

To use the sort title in search results was just a feature request.

Cheers

It achieves what you want without changing anything else.
