The Movie Database Support

I've got a list that I view in "Original" order (ie, the order that I added the films in). It's the order that I watched the films in but I've realised that I missed on when I was creating a list. How can I insert a film into a specific point in the list, or change the order of a list after films have been added? I was expecting to see some drag-and-drop handles or up/down arrows but I can't find them. Am I missing something?

Hi, Chimpanzee (that feels funny to say!).

If you open your list, then click on "Edit", look for where it says "Sorted By". You won't be able to relocate a particular title to just a completely random place on your list, but will have a number of other order options that may prove desirable. (I personally have each of my lists set to present in Release Date Ascending order, as I find it easiest to locate things - example here - presented chronologically, oldest at the top, newest at the bottom, and everything else in the right release order in between.)

The available order options are:

  • Original Ascending
  • Original Descending
  • Rating Ascending
  • Rating Descending
  • Release Date Ascending
  • Release Date Descending
  • Title (A-Z)

Am I missing something?

There is currently no custom list order, but you can follow/vote for this feature on Trello.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I was looking to move specific items to another position in the list instead of using the predefined sort orders. I've added my vote on Trello. 👍
