Ignoring "The " at the beginning of the artist name sort for the grid

Should not the sort for the artist name for the song grid be able to ignore "The " at the beginning of the artist name (ie, "The Beach Boys" sorts as "Beach Boys").  I could be OCD and change the artist names myself, but editing song info for official DLC is not allowed, so they will always show up in the grid as "The XXXX"

Kinda ironic don't you think, wanting 'A Flock of Seagull' but not 'The Beach Boys'.  Anyhow, CFSM can handle it.

>Song Managaer>Custom Mods>'The' mover  should do what you want.  I hope.  :)

As a FYI, there's no official DLC as far as i know that keep "The" for the sorting in front, it's always put at the end unlike for the "A" that is kept at the beginning.

 

So "The" should be put at the end like it did already and "A" should be kept at the beginning if the goal is to be ODLC like.

For a long time now toolkit CDLC validation has placed 'The' at the end of the 'Artist Sort' field just like is done in ODLC.

 

CFSM also gives the user the additional option of moving the 'The' to the end of the 'Artist' column as well.  This option only modifies the display and does not modify the CDLC itself.

Not ironic at all, as this sorting and cataloging convention has been the industry de facto standard for many, many years. 

 

<Song Manager><Custom Mods><'The' Mover>  appears to do exactly that.  I'm not sure how I missed that.

 

Thanks!
