Sort by name, excluding the first word

I was wondering if there was a way to sort folders by name, excluding the word "The".
example: "The Dark Knight" is sorted by "Dark" instead of being sorted with all the other folders that start the 'The"


Yes, you can set The (there should be a space after the word, which is important) in the Ignore Prefix field, either in the Global Filters section of Preferences (if you want it to affect all folders) or within a Folder Format's Sorting settings (if you only want it to affect specific folders or types of folders).

If you want to ignore multiple words, you can use something like this:

The |A (with a space at the end of the A, which the forum hides)

Thanks so much. Happy holidays my dude.
