My Content Management - Can't get alphabetical filter to work (5 posts)

    I have installed My Content Management and My Content Management - Glossary Filter and activated them both. I have created a Custom Post Type titled "Artists" which was made using the People Template.
    I am trying to get the list to display the alphabet at the top to help visitors find the specific artist in the list.. like this

    All | a | b | c | d | e | ..."

    I read a support post and it said all I had to do was activate the My Content Management - Glossary Filter but that didn't change anything in my existing list. Any suggestion how I can get this to work?
    Thanks

    I appreciate the link but will it work with pages and sub pages? If you're familiar with "My Content Management" plugin you know it creates lists by also creating it's own set of catagories. It then lets you create a list of items, in my case "artists" through the use of sub pages. I wouldn't know how to apply the information you've pointed me to to apply this to this setup. I've tried some alphabetical list plugins too but they only apparently work for regular catagories and now what My Content Management creates. I think the only solution is to get it to work using MCM itself and it appears there is a way... I just can't seem to make it work.

    I've never used the MCM plugin, so hopefully the developer will have an answer. Sorry.

    The Glossary filter only works with the Glossary post type; it's not designed to do anything else. If you're comfortable with PHP, however, you could explore that sub-plug-in and fairly easily modify it to work with your Artists post type.
