This is a script I took and modified from Ricardo Pescuma Domenecci. It grabs 1,5, or 10 of all comics defined in a Series Group, that are unread, by published date. I modified his original script because I have some comics, like Hellboy series where I put BPRD, Hellboy, Abe Sapien, etc,. in the same Series Group. I wanted to read them all in the order in which they were published but I didn't want to sync them all to my iPad.

This smartlist script does that for me. It basically gets up to 10 comics per Series Group, in the order they were published, oldest to newest, and unread. This way, every time I sync this specific list the read ones drop out and the next unread comics by publish date in each series group are sync'd up.

There are times where the publish date may be the same for a given set of comics in the same series/group, and in this case the order will be based on the series number. I build an "order #" to sort by using YEARMONTHSERIESNUMBER. I haven't tested this out thoroughly but spot checking against my collection seems to be working well. Hope someone finds this useful.




Enjoy!

Yeah... that was supposed to be more than an Idea. :) Totally forgot to attach the script into the body of the message itself. Just attached to the post. Just put out v.02 on a new thread that I'll use for tracking updates.

Thanks!
