I have a quick question... how does one sort artists in order to bypass "the" in the beginning? I know where to place it, just not the code. Thanks in advance!!!

The best solution for album list (and facets, too) would be, if there was a separation between display and sorting. I use for sorting an extra field %artist sort%. So there is no need for complicated title formatting and I can sort all artists the way I want. For example: I want to sort "Ludwig van Beethoven" under the letter B, but display it as I wrote before. I use "BEETHOVEN LUDWIG" as sortstring and get the desired result. It's a little bit more work while tagging, but it's worth it.

While it's not a bad idea per se, making it fully configureable doesn't make much sense.

It allows too many nonsensical combinations. How would you sort %artist% by %tracknumber%, for example?

In Facets, you can already add both Artist and Artist Sort columns, sort by the Artist Sort column, and finally hide the column by resizing it to a width of 0px.
