#1  Massreader 03-14-2019, 02:58 PM
Hi,

normaly calibre2opds is sorting books from A to Z.
How can I change this to get a Z to A order?

Thank you very much in advance!

This is not an option at the moment. I cannot remember anyone else ever asking for this.

Just for interest are you asking for this just for book titles or also for other items like authors or series? Implementing a reverse Sort is only a line or two of code. A much bigger issue is making appropriate changes to the UI to present such an option in a way that would not be confusing.

For me sorting by book title or date of publication is by far most important.
Sorting by author is (with some distance) my number three.

@itimpi
Maybe you are involved in developping Calibre2opds?
If so, is there a chance to get the function for sorting I asked for?
Would be VERY helpfull!

I am thinking I should have some time to look at implementing this. The actual code that needs amending to do the sorting is relatively trivial - it is the GUI changes to support this that require more thought and more work. I will post an update when/if this gets implemented.
