Sort Title and exclude words (The, A)

Post by whywilson »

Love media monkey been using it for over a year now for all my music movies and anime.

I'm just curious if there is some way to disable certain words that are automatically sorted such as "the" "an" "a" as they often times are the first word in a movie title or song.

Thanks.

I believe that is only for Artists and the original question was about titles. In response to that question, I don't think there is any way to get MM to ignore these words in titles.

Yes, ignoring prefixes is only for Artist/Album Artist.

Any idea if a patch will be released that will include the same function for titles?

There's no movement on this issue (first reported 8 years ago! :-? ): http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=4564

Other players like Musicbee (mediamonkey-style configuration) and foobar2k (manual configuration) ignores user-set prefixes in other fields including <Artist>. I consider it essential when navigating <album>-sorted genres like soundtracks.
