    v3 and earlier allowed you to manually sort groups, but they removed the functionality with no reason or vote from users a couple years ago.

    A shame because of the exact reason you mentioned. MCU is another example, the standard release date or alphabetic order makes no sense in these instances.

    Your best option is probably going to be using some custom categories or creating sagas per country. You'll have to manually group them, but I suspect it'll be the only way to do what you're after from a country grouping perspective.

    So I was browsing Movies tonight and noticed I have a Sort option for Recent Additions from newest to oldest, or oldest to newest, and it shows ALL titles.

    I was told this option wasn't available when I contacted Zappiti Support, which is why they made these changes to Recent and removed the option to limit it.

    If the option is in fact there, why can't we then set a limit? Why was the limit removed to provide functionality that already exists elsewhere in a Sort menu?

    If you want Recent as your Showcase, you can't use it because it takes far too long to load. It also takes much longer to load the Recent module when it has to pull 500 titles, regardless how many pages you view. It has to preload as many pages as there are so it responds quickly.

    How does having a user defined limit (by number of titles or days since adding) hurt anyone who doesn't want this? They can just set null value 0 and have endless. But the thing is, they have that choice. Like we used to.

    A user selected limit is the ideal option, either by number of titles to max out or a date added cut-off. ZMC was date added and you can set the number of days, not sure if there was a max limit but I usually had 30-45 days.

    Then rename it, it's no longer recent if you added it 2 years ago and thousands of titles ago, is it?

    It's absurd to have this when you have hundreds of TV series and thousands of movies.

    Also worth noting, if you have Recent as your showcase module, it becomes unusable unless you like spending 5 minutes waiting for pages to load.

    Everything is labour intensive, they have forgotten how to make a positive user experience with their product.

    I support option 2, but I have no votes left to help you out. I want to have multiple selection options and be able to run an action on that selected set of content. It's common sense and I thought basic functionality for applications spanning decades.

    In older versions it was 2 tabs, but you could still only do one at a time. I believe it shouldn't kick you out of this menu as soon as you select an image, there should be an OK button and it should allow you to select Cover and Background before clicking OK.

    If I had more votes I would give it to this, it's the reason I came here today. Allow users to select both images at the same time before exiting the screen.

    There's a couple related suggestions here rolled into one which comes from v2 ZMC.

    1. The ability so customize existing categories. I want to be able to select the right icon for the categories. When I right click to Edit it says I can't change a defautl category. Why not? That was standard functionality previously and something I used a lot. It would be good to see previous ZMC functionality restored here where a user can not only change the icon to an existing stock image, but select their own image from their PC.

    2. When creating a new custom category, again allow for custom images to be used from the PC.

    Both of these can be seen here where I created custom categories and applied my own images, and updated the default categories to more colourful images. https://i.imgur.com/D8zClUI.jpg

    Can this please be restored?
