Order book by metadata value in the collection manager UI
The same logic implemented for ordering chapters within a book applies to ordering books within a collection. All ordering is automatic. There are three options for the "Order book by" setting:
- Publication date
Note: Please discuss this implementation with @John.kopanas. I think only
title is saved in the database at the moment. There is work to be done to save Publication date and Volume from the metadata (I'll create a separate issue).
If the ordering value is missing, follow the same implementation done for chapter-processed books:
- If the book does not belong to a "custom title" group, place the book at the top of the collection manager table and show "TOC?" icon
- If the book does belong to a "custom title" group, place the book at the top of the group and show "TOC?" icon.
