Hi Michael,

I haven't written the section in the Bible yet although plan to do so soon, so I'm happy to help answer your question.

Episode groups is a new system to help organize TV shows in ways that are not based on the original air dates and orders. This all came about from the need to better support anime but is something that can actually help many other TV shows. For notes that I have made about it since I launched it, check out this post.

Short version, take a look at Firefly, or Batman: The Animated Series and you'll see we can now group episodes in their intended order (Firefly) or DVD order (Batman).

Thanks i take a look. Michael

And how do I add episodes on Episode Groups like DVD or Digital?

I made some small edits to the Episode Groups you created for Clarence. The DVD group is here. You can click on the volumes to add the episodes. You have the options to double-click, drag or click on the 'move selected episodes' button to add episodes to a group. You can also use the Ctrl or Shift keys to select multiple episodes. And you can easily re-order the episodes or remove them from the group by dragging them. :smiley_cat:

Also, the episode groups names and description are not (yet) translatable. Please use English!

But before adding episodes to the groups, it would be best to fix the episode data. Could you please make sure all the episodes are in the order they aired on Cartoon Network and have the original CN air dates? :worried:

Hey man I just realized I did another mistakes with episode names in spanish, I put the latin american Clarence Episodes names on spanish from Spain, is there anyway I can move ALL of them to Mexico Spanish?

@shefryrandel Sorry, I forgot to respond! There is no easy way to move the data, no. :worried:

edit: Or maybe there is. :smile_cat:

@shefryrandel I can bulk move the language tags. To confirm, it looks like you saved them all to "es-ES" and and you want them moved to "es-MX"?

And remove the info on "es-ES" which I can do later

I think that's what Travis already is gonna do, move the content from es-es to es-mx, thus emptying es-es.
