Device: nook hd
Book sideloaded onto nook hd don't appear in series order

I've spent hour twiddling with the template language and finally gave up on accomplishing my goal without help. My goal is to have books loaded from calibre to my nook hd sorted by author last name then series (in order of series number). I was finally able to get the books to load to my nook with the proper subfolder by configuring the device with the template language but they still appear in my nook library in no particular order (not even alphabetical by title).

I've tried restarting my device and computer and have un and reinstalled calibre to no avail. I've also double checked to make sure the series name matches all books and there are no articles in my test series "Immortals after dark"

My current template language is {author_sort}/{series_index}/{title}
After configuring my device with that the files on my nook show author>series title>series number the folders are in the proper order but in my nook library on the actual device the books have no apparent order.

Anyone have a fix for this? Not super tech savvy so the for dummies version would be appreciated.

Try this as a send to device template.
{author_sort}/{series}/{series_index:0>2s} - {title}

When I had a nook touch and used folders I used to use this
{tags:re([\.],/!)|!|}/{authors[0]}/{authors}/{series}/{series_index:0>5.2f| |-}{title}

But both these will work for browsing by folders only. If nook scans and uses the epub internal metadata. You will also need to use metadata plugboards to add series name and number to the title.

This didn't work for me-still loads in no discernible order. I tried fiddling with the metadata plugboards this morning and that resulted in my test series being loaded 3 times without being able to delete them from the device so I'll have to do a factory reset

after a reset my original test series using the above template still doesn't load in order though a different order before...but still not in any order that makes sense
