We still need this feature, particularly for song and album titles.

Not possible with the current release.

"The" in Album Titles

by PiercedOne » Wed Jan 17, 2018 5:57 pm

I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere; I searched the board, but didn't find it.

Please tell me how to get MM to ignore "The" in album titles in the same way you can get it to ignore "The" in Artist names. It's making me crazy.

Thanks

Hi,
Does anyone know if the feature to ignore prefixes 'The' 'A'' etc has been added when sorting by albums, Title etc.
It does appear it has been requested for many years but I can't seem to find if its been added.

I want to bump this thread. I see that this has had an open ticket for 7 years now.

Like other commenters in this thread, I'd love to see the option to ignore the selected prefix in other fields besides the Artist and Album Artist. I agree that Album and Title are the most obvious candidates. This enhancement would be much appreciated.

Any chance we will ever see this enhancement?

Sorting by Song

In the options menu, there is a checkbox for "Ignore prefixes when sorting by Arti(st)" Very useful, as I don't have 10,000 bands sorted with "The" as their first word.

suggestion: create another checkbox for Ignore prefixes when sorting by Title" Many songs start with a parenthesis, as in (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (Rolling Stones), others start with "...", quotation marks, etc.
If we had that ability, then we could sort songs in a logical way, by the actual words, not the punctuation.

It is only for artists, which all of us here appreciate, but "The" prefix is not ignored in other fields such as albums. The inability to do so makes a mess of viewing Soundtracks when they are sorted by the album field for example. This feature request has been tracked (#4564), but there appears to be little movement on it in over four years. It may have been lost in the shuffle, especially with the MM4 roll out and issues related to iDevices synchronization.

Yes, this is rather annoying for me as well, especially when iTunes ignores the prefix "The" when sorting via album names.

Yes. Adding an ignore prefix for song titles would be helpful as well.

bump

I've been a Gold user for a couple of years. I'd love to be able to ignore symbols such as ( " and ' in addition to articles such as A An and The.

Thanks.
