This is not an urgent matter at all, but rather, just something I noticed. 

I have a client complaining that their folders do not line up in alphabetical order. After staring at it for a minute, I realized that they are in alphabetical order with all of the folders in Uppercase from A-Z, and then followed by the folders named with all lower case from a-z. 

Why would the folder alphabetize by uppercase first, then by lower case?

If we rename the folders to all be in upper case, the links to those images will break, correct?

Thanks in advance for your input!

Hi robynlingen,

Thanks for pointing this out. You are correct in highlighting that the folders would indeed order as A, B, C, a, b, c. Rather than A, a, B, b, C, c.

I agree, it doesn't look completely logical. However, this is the default behaviour of the programming language behind Ark Media (and Joomla). Even Joomla's default media manager follows the same behaviour pattern (see attach screenshots). That being said feel free to add a feature request here and we can take a look into altering this logic in a future release of Ark Media.

Finally, most web servers are case sensitive so changing your folder's case will indeed break any existing links you have, unless you start setting up redirects to fix broken links.

Hope that helps!
