My Question or Issue
while reordering the tracks in my playlists, i noticed that the default playlist cover (4 tiles) is not always in sync with the four top tracks, specifically when viewing from my public profile versus from the playlist itself.
for instance, my playlist "fall 2019" has four albums displaying in 2x2 format as the default playlist art. my playlist has a "Custom order" and I've arranged the songs to appear:
1. Choke - iDKHOW
2. Gossip - SWS
3. Allergic - Post Malone
4. Welcome to the End of Your Life - THE DRIVER ERA
you can see that order reflected in the default tiled playlist cover here:
however, the playlist cover does not correspond with my preferred order when viewed from my public profile, as seen here:
just kinda bugging me as i like to re-order my tracks and customize those little default playlist covers! thnx in advance for any insight :")

Hi there @hoppeellie,
Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!
The cover image is based on the order of the tracks the playlist was created with initially. Any change to those tracks (to the top-4), like removing one of them, should cause the cover to update automatically.
Changing the sorting order via the menu will not cause a change as this is just a personal sorting filter.
Hope this info clears things up. Cheers.
