This book is sorting under "The" instead of "Last".

TIA!

These books are having the same issue:

Are special characters supposed to change the way books are sorted. Déjà Dead sorts to the very end of the D titles.

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 145 comments I fixed the first three, but I’m not sure what to do about Déjà Dead.

Letters with accent marks and similar can be replaced with the unaccented letter in the sort-by field, just as we do with the sort-by field on author profiles.

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 145 comments Done. As Watson would say, “How absurdly simple!” Thanks, Rivka.


Linda ~ they got the mustard out! ~ (linda2485) | 60 comments Thank you both!

One last one, hopefully. This isn't so much a sorting issue, but a title issue, which effects sorting.

All the other books in the series start their titles with "Infected: Book title" except this one. Can this be changed to "Infected: Prey" so they're all the same? Thanks!

Linda ~ chock full of hoot, just a little bit of nanny ~ wrote: "All the other books in the series start their titles with "Infected: Book title""

None of them should, as it's contrary to Goodreads policy on how series titles are formatted. I will work on correcting them in a little while, unless another librarian gets to them first.


Linda ~ they got the mustard out! ~ (linda2485) | 60 comments This book needs fixing too. It's sorting under the A's instead of the S's. Thanks!
