Why can I no longer sort on Artist headings?

Gig Goer

I used to be able to click on an Artist's songs to rate them alphabetically. Now I am just stuck with the 'most popular' sort and have to hunt for a song!!

 

Why was this feature removed?

I'm assuming you mean on the search results page? If so, the way the page is being rendered has been changed over from a playlist view to how the artists pages are generated and it appears in that transition the sorting ability was lost.

Luckily for the time being there is a workaround to make it render with the old view:

Thanks....I will try that.

 

Why was this removed?  It was great to be able to search by artist, get all their songs, sort on the title and then scroll down to the song.

 

Will it be restored soon?

It doesn't look like it will be added back anytime soon if the staff response in this topic is anything to go by:
