I found two four/five years old threads on this, saying that it isn't possible in rockbox.

Now in 2019 I just want to humbly ask, if anything changed on that topic. I am a complete newbie concerning any custom configs in rockbox, so be kind.  :)

My request is the same as in the threads above, I would like to have something like this in the database:

artists -> band xx -> "(2019) album", the year taken from the tag of the album files. This this would be instead of the alphabetical order of the pure album names. Imho this would be a large improvement for a discographywise chronological view.

Thanks a lot for your answers!

It's possible but it requires a bit of handiwork. See my answer (by chris_s2) on IRC, specifically the second part that refers to this patch: https://www.rockbox.org/irc/log-20190313

If you're interested and aren't able to do it yourself, I may be able to compile you a version that includes this functionality next weekend. In that case, let me know which device you need it for.

I should be able to, but may not get to it before the weekend. Feel free to drop me a PM in case I forget.

Personally, I've actually stopped using the yearalbum patch and have ended up simply copying the album title, prepended by the album year, to the Comments tag of each my audio files, which achieves pretty much the same thing and doesn't require you to modify the Rockbox source. You only have to add something like this to your tagnavi.config:


--- Code: ---"Albums by year" -> albumartist -> comment -> title = "fmt_title"
--- End code ---
