Wimpy PHP and Wimpy ASP offer two sorting options:
By default, the playlist is sorted ascending according to alpha-numeric A-Z, 0-9 -- top to bottom based on the file name. You can flip this so that the order is Descending, Z-A, 9-0 Bottom to top by editing the wimpy.php/asp variable named fileSortOrder. To do so, open wimpy.php/asp up in a text editor and set fileSortOrder to "des" -- there are additional instructions and examples in the comments of the wimpy.php/asp file. as:
// Controls the sort order of how the files should be listed.
// Can be set to:
//"asc" - sort the files in alphabetically ascending order (A-Z)
//"des" - sort the files in alphabetically descending order (Z-A)
//$fileSortOrder = "des";
