Sorting Library albums by Date
Hello.
I've been using foobar for a week with the skin Musikarte, it looks really great.
One think I didn't like was the artists panel. It featured a list of the bands in my collection with a missing picture of the artists. I found it useless to spend my time looking for 50x50 pics of every single artist.
So I tried to change the way it displayed my music with my little knowledge about this stuff.
I opened Preferences window and then Tools > Es Playlist. Then I made a preset that looked like this:
Code: [Select]
*checkbox:   checked* %<artist>%
*checkbox: unchecked* %album%

Now it's fine, but I noticed the albums displayed for every artist is not sorted by date.
I've been trying to get it fixed but I can't find a solution. It looks like this now:

For example, the order of Genesis' albums in that image should be Trespass then Nursery Cryme then Foxtrot and finally Selling England by the Pound.
Is there any way to change this?

Thanks!

Open the ES Playlist preferences and change %album% to %date% - %album% (the dash is optional) in the Grouping box. You can still use only %album% in the Title box if you want.
