That explains it. I wasn't sure. We all start somewhere. You've been pointed to the tweaks. You need to look closely at the metadata editor screen to see if you've got problems with your title_sort and author_sort fields. Changing the tweaks affects future entries, not the past (although sorting is affected, field entries are not). If the data in the author and author_sort match according to the present tweak, the sort field will turn green.
