Hi there, I was working on my collections, and from one moment to another I wasn't able to sort my elements anymore. The Drag-n-drop arrows as well as the sorting numbers disappeared. Am I the only one having this problem?

I think that after reaching a given number of elements, you can't rearrange stuff as you could. But it seems that you can use the 'Sort' button (which appears close to 'Edit') to do that.

The limit for arranging seems to be at 30 elements. But where's the "Sort" button? I cannot find it. Neither while editing nore when it's published nore when it's saved as draft.

That's weird. Doesn't it show up to you here: https://imgur.com/a/iBdwtZg ?

I cannot load the image.
But when I'm on the published page of my collection, I only see the buttons "view" and "edit". When I'm on the page while editing, I can see the numbers, but there's no drop down menu nore the arrows to drag.

That's weird. I can see it in all my collections that have many items...

Now it's getting even weirder: I've checked my other collections (incl. two large ones), and everything is alright. But I have those problems only with this collection: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/collection/worlds-longest-song-titles

I had that once, too. After adding a few more elements to the collection, the "Sort" button appeared...

SiHo_92 is right, the "Sort" button becomes visible for 30+ items collections. There was a glitch for collections which contain exactly 30 items, which is now fixed.

What does 'sort elements' mean?

@lt: Thanks, it's working.

[@BreezyDay]: You can put the elements of your collection into any order you want. Example: For my collection mentioned above I need to sort my elements according to their name's length.

Is that the same as changing the sequence of songs numerically in the list? Because I've been having all kinds of grief and anguish with that feature.

I complained via the forum and also directly to Admin, but so far the suggestions received did not resolve the problem. I feel the need to group songs within my collection. Then, if I add a song, by default it is added to the bottom. So I want to drag it up to the right place in the collection but it doesn't work on the computer or phone. Someone taught me about row weights and experimenting with them was stressful and ultimately made one of my songs drop off.

Apparently I am the only one who cannot drag my songs into the correct position. I have tried my phone and three different computers. I feel like I'll have to re-do two of my collections from scratch to get the songs in the correct sequence, and then not allow myself to add new songs.

I'm quite frustrated about this.

Actually, "sorting" means exactly this. I use a mobile version of LT on a Nintendo device, and I can change the order of the songs by both dragging and numbers.

Hmmm, I forgot about mobile apps. I usually just go directly to the website on my phone. I'll try downloading the app. It's still weird that I can't do it on a computer. Then again, none of my collections are more than 30 songs. Can we not sort if we have 30 or under?

For collections under 30 elements, you should be able to sort the elements while editing your collections. BTW, I don't use an app either, it's just a simplified website.

Can't do it, can't figure out why. Cry smile
