YesThat sort tab is very confusing and needs tweaking for 1.2. It only changes the tracks list not the others.
Just confused as you say you want no folders but it looks like you actually want a folder per album but show "album artist - album (year)" as the label?
All my music is placed with one album per folder.
So I have...
Music/Bruce Springsteen - Darkness On The Edge Of Town
Music/Carpark North - Best Days Greatest Hits
Music/Dire Straits - The Best Of Dire Straits
When I browse my shares view, this is really simple to navigate through. But with 300+ albums (folders) MP takes some time to load the main directory (Music).
Year label is not mandatory. But I would like to see both artist and albumtitle for each thumb.
