List keywords in alphabetical order

  • Answered
Plot keyword pages have recently been updated to the new design, e.g.:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0903747/k...

Would it be possible to also implement alphabetical ordering of the items, as has been the suggestion of many users and contributors over time? Currently, keywords are listed in no discernible order.

This would be a good idea. From what I can tell, the keywords are listed in the order they have been added.

I agree. This is an important modification that IMDb should make to ensure survival of the entire movie-searching public, including the incredibly smart, good-looking, tall, and suave (yes, suave) author of the topic. Everyone start commenting so IMDb pays attention.

Since I use Firefox, I have added the Greasemonkey script IMDb Plot Keywords Alphabetizer  2013.05.02, which I now consider an essential for my use of the site.

Unfortunately the UserScripts.org site, which hosted this script, now seems to be down, and the creator does no appear to have posted it to other sites.

Hey, David:

Sorry for the delay in replying (I hadn't seen this thread until today that it's been bumped by Peter's response). You can get all the scripts made by David-CG, including IMDb Contributor, IMDb Message Boards plus or IMDb Plot Keywords alphabetizer, from this mirror site:

There is now a feature allowing alphabetical display of keyword pages. Well done.

I go one step further and feel that alphabetic keyword order should be default. No one seems to know what "Relevance" really means.
