Track Number in Columns UI's

When I'm trying to user Columns UI's the tracks are not in onder.
So for an album i get

04
08
02
05
01

Instead of

01
02
03
04
and so on.

Am I missing something in the config, or is this an issue with my tags. All my music are in FLAC format

Thanks for any help

Hmh, what kind of sort string are you using on your playlist and are all your files properly tagged ?

In case they are all properly tagged you can sort your playlist with this string
Code: [Select]
$if2(%album artist%,%artist%) - $if2(%venue%,%album%) - %__codec% - %disc% - $tracknumber() - $if2(%title%,%_filename_ext%)


You can also add this line in the core preferences under "Sort incoming files by".  Foobar should then sort all new files that you encue in the proper way.

Still not working. I have to question if its my tags, because if I ask to sort the playlist by track number it comes up correct

Thanks For the help

If you sort by tracknumber and they sort fine then ur tags are fine. Are you sure you entered the above code into the correct place? It should be going in "Playlist > Sort > Sort By..."

Sweeeeeeeeeet!!!!!!!!!, that worked for a single artist. However when i add a compilation I'm back to square one. I know i starting to be demanding, but any more help would be great.

The trick would probably be to add an "album artist" tag to your compilations. Simply enter the bame of the album artist, DJ, compilation, or whatever there.

Then the above string should also sort your various artist albums correctly.

Thank you very much. Both work for albums by the same artist, but as before not with compilations. I think I will have to revisit my tags for CDs with multiple artists.
Again, thanks for the help

Finally! Had one hell of a time trying to get my track 100 at the bottom, finally saw this little bit from acedriver, "$directory(%_path%,2)%artist%$num(%date%,2)%album%$num(%tracknumber%,2)" and I modified the $num(%tracknumber%,2) from 2 to 3 and kachow! Everything magically lined up! Next thing you know I'll end up with a #1000 track, 100 doesn't even fit on a cd of average length songs but the discogs tagger will put them all on a single album instead of multiples.
