Default podcast sort order

Post by Yerushalmi »

This has been bugging me for some time but I can't figure it out.

If you click on one of your podcast subscriptions in the tree on the right, what is the order in which the files appear by default (before you've clicked on Title, Track Number, or whatever)? They're not sorted by anything that I can think of.

It's important because it seems to be the same or very similar to the unchangeable ordering used by my SansaClip+ (if and only if there is no track number) and as a result, if I can find out what it is, I can edit it, and get my podcast episodes to play in the order I want...

Unplayed podcasts show first in order that they are listed under the podcast node. Then played podcasts show. Full podcasts are sorted by the order in the node and then individual episodes show in reverse order of date.

I'm talking about in each individual podcast. Individual episodes don't actually seem to be displayed in order of date. I don't have a screenshot on me because I'm not at that computer, but I'll bring an example tomorrow.

They're always in reverse order of date for me.

Ah! I just realized the reason I'm having trouble communicating my question - first of all, podcasts are always (in MM) displayed in order of RSS feed. Which is by order of date automatically.

My problem is that I have a "manual" podcast - i.e., files labeled with genre "podcast" but that do not actually come from an RSS feed. The little orange podcast icon next to the name of the podcast in the tree in these cases is gray instead of orange, and the podcasts aren't listed in order of date.
