Hello

A lot of my album titles are prefixed with 'The'.

Is it possible to make AlbumPlayer to stop seeing 'The' if it's at the beginning of a title? So that:

The Goodfellas Soundtrack

will be seen as:

Goodfellas Soundtrack

Then it is shown under G when the titles are sorted.

I spose I could take off 'The' ... but there is a LOAD!!

TIA ... Mick

are you using the folder/filename or the tag to generate your collection listing?

You can't get rid of the "The" because that's part of the album title and AP doesn't change those. However, you can get the album artists to sort at the correct place by adding them to the Artist Database. If the album artist starts with "The", AP will move it to the correct field automatically.

Unfortunately this won't work on album titles. You can either rename or retag them, or edit the album within AP and change its title. That will make it sort the way you want, but leave it untouched in your library.
