Everything seems to be working, except: How do I get the titles to list in alphabetical order when both the "seriesinfo" and "series" fields are empty?

You might also want to investigate the Control sorting of titles and series in the library display tweak.

Good Luck.

Conclusion of Issue above:

After much tinkering, I've come to the conclusion that I have to choose. I can either sort by:
Code:
(('authors', 0), ('series', 0), ('title', 0))
or by:
Code:
(('authors', 0), ('#seriesinfo', 0), ('title', 0))
I can not, however, sort by both '#seriesinfo' & 'series' if I also want to also sort by 'title'.
