What I am asking is that when movies have numbers in them, both the search and ordering look at the word version:
Code:
21 Jump Street
Read as: Twenty-One Jump Street
Code:
3 Ninjas
Read as: Three Ninjas
Code:
300
Read as: Three Hundred

Not a bad idea, at least as an option.

In the short term, you can probably do this with <sorttitle> in an nfo file: Import-export library

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Yea, currently you would have to manually edit the titles of the movies, which could easily be done in the http web interface with the XWMM add on.

Not sure why you want this though as the numbers are the "proper" movie name as it is what is scraped from imdb or tmdb

I think it will be hell concerning localization but who knows Smile

More or less for organization purposes, and already use sort title to accomplish most of this (no method to do this with movie sets). Thank you for your responses
