CSV Export, key:title

Postby robertrobert » Sun Apr 17, 2011 3:57 pm

I export my DVDPedia library to a CSV format using a template I've created. One issue I have is with the [key:title] values. I have many movies that being with "The" or "A". These movies are all grouped together in the "T" section or the "A" section. DVDPedia is smart enough to ignore those words in the title when sorting. Would it be possible to get a new export value in addition to [key:title] which would move noise words to the end of the title. Such as "The Neverending Story" would export as "Neverending Story, The" or something like that.

Thanks for the feedback. We can look at creating a key like that in the future. In the meantime regular expressions might help you move the articles to the end of the title. Especially if your custom template lists the title first. (Just look for 'the, an, a' at the beginning of the entry and move it to the first tab.)
