Hello!
I don't know if this is the right place for my issue. So please forgive if it isn't.

Since V3 there is the possibility to switch to an alternative order on the main page.
Can anybody tell me if it's possible to get those other sorting methode scrapped by the Kodi pluging?

Thank you.

No. The alternate order is not exposed to the API and is a website only feature at this stage.

No media manager or scraper can access the alternate orders until TVDB update the API.

Thanks for reply.
Is such an api update scheduled?
Without the ability to scrap them, the feature is nice but useless.

I agree, nice but currently useless.

As far as I am aware, there is no known release date so it is up to the TVDB admins to complete the feature and release.
