  1. tags page search & replace all & skip

    As there is a search option already on this page would it be possible to implement an " if found replace with box" to allow a user to type in a whole or part of a tag search but then implement the change. Hence if a tag requires to be changed on mass then it would save a lot of typing.
    Perhaps have a global "replace all option" as well as a safer method of skipping through one at a time so if you have over looked something then you have an option to skip this incidence & skip to…

    • tags file size album wrap

      When editing under the tags page it would be useful to be able to have a column that shows the actual file size so that a user could identify an album wrap and tag it accordingly. eg. ALBWRAP

      • Filtering/Searching on 'Linked Release' compliancy

        It would be useful to be able to filter and differentiate albums that are only compliant by 'accident' - Ones that it hasn't been possible to find a 'linked release' as the tags are incomplete or invalid. By default, these are marked as compliant. It might also be useful to be able to filter on linked releases that only have a low confidence factor.

        • Add stop service or scan button (synology nas)

          The idea behind this is a simple way to stop the service mid scan to enable any number of things to take place. Currently having to navigate to the package & stop the service. Perform various things then restart the service. Just a nice quicker way to do this

          • Persistent album navigation buttons

            I'm validating Bliss's artwork and metadata suggestions and I've just gotten to the second 96-album page of the album list. Unlike the first 96-album page, I can't always move from the current to the next album: the buttons that let me move backward and forward in the album list sometimes disappear, leaving only the "Back to album list" button. This slows my validation considerably because I need to navigate to each album rather than simply clicking a button to move to it.
            Here's how to reproduce the problem:
            * Navigate to the second page of the album list.
            * Click…

            • Failed to update tags (pop up not clearing) temp recolour background

              When editing tags manually and assume bliss is already doing something to that file then you get a pop up message stating "failed to update tag" However the pop up box does not clear and so you have to come out of tags and back in. Re-select to show the tags that are wanting to be edited again e.g. in this case Genre.. Then continue down the list to find where you were. Skip that album & continue....... somewhat annoying ... Any way of identifying a locked file ? say temp recolour back ground to red so you know not…

              • Allow license to be added as parameter on startup

                I've been playing around with docker version of bliss that has been started by grant Shipley (credit: https://github.com/gshipley/bliss).

                One thing I've noticed is every time I start it, while I can preserve the config for the database the license information is lost and I have to manually re-enter it.

                Suggestion from this idea is to find a way to allow the user to pass in their license on startup. Suggestion is setting a parameter in startup script that will load if valid.

                Unless there is a way already to do this?

                • clear tags & standard comments tag

                  As been mentioned perhaps before an ability to clear certain tags would be good. Especially when starting with a jumbled messy collection.

                  Not least as an addition to the settings page have a setting that allows a comment to be set as standard for the comment tag. Allow a radio button/sub control to state append or overwrite or clear current comment tag. So when found Bliss will append or overwrite or clears any current comment that is within the comment tag. Gets rid of or tidies the comment tag.

                  • missing art shortcut

                    When missing art is found as non compliance, and you are viewing albums , by clicking on the empty thumb nail this immediately takesyou to the page where you can search for missing art.
                    back end of URL below....
                    /coverart?startAt=0&page=.*&albumsCount=96&complianceState=noncompliant%253AGroupedMissingArtAssessment

                    This would save on repeated navigating through the menues to get to the websearch function..
                    Just an idea

                      • Make compliance active from Rules with single button click

                        After library analysis according my rules I got the result:
                        Artwork Too large - 278; Incorrect image format-156; but I already explicit put the rules previously so why do I have to go one by one to make clicks to do this actions. I bought bliss for batch and massive actions over a big, probably huge music collection. If I have to make it effective one by one it's a complete waste of time! Probably it's good to be presented like it was but then it should have the option to make it effective! If I'm seeing it wrongly or…

                        • Missing album art, auto own image.

                          Rather than having multiple missing album ar as potential fixes, have a default image of your own choice that automatically gets uplaoded & inserted into the music file. (done within the settings) When time allows you can search for no album art files & correctly change to an alternative if required or leave a is.

                          • Take non-audio files to the new directory when renaming albums

                            I think subject says it all. When bliss is auto-renaming files and album directories according to tags and if the album name is different than the directory where the current album is stored, it creates a new directory in correspondance to the album name and moves all files there in, however non audio files (like pdf, additional art directories) are left behind in the original directory. The make this fantastic feature really useful, the whole content of the old directory should be moved to the new one.

                            • a compliance setting to ensure artwork is consistent across all album tracks

                              Whilst cleaning up id tags in beta version of PerfectTunes for Mac discovered that there were some music files with singular embedded artwork but they were not consistent across the whole album.

                              Bliss confirmed artwork was compliant with just one embedded artwork per file but occassionally there were differences across the album. For example two different album covers or more often two different file sizes.

                              It would be useful to have Bliss scan music tracks and alert you to those that have different artwork across one album.

                                On my synology nas I reach the watch limit at around 3149 albums with activity log of :- Reached limit of inotify watches permissible on this system. Please review http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/13751/kernel-inotify-watch-limit-reached for remedies

                                So ideally require Bliss to work out the maximum watch limits & then simple warning message when clicking on the watch album radio button that if you have xyz albums do not watch for changes. OR alternatively a simple inbuilt button for any system including a NAS tweak that allows more albums to be watched than current limits.

                                • For genres, optionally pull in music "style" as well

                                  The 'style' field in Discogs tends to have valuable information for organizing my music, for example, a movie soundtrack I own has "Rock, Pop, Classical" as it's genres in Discogs. However the 'Style' field in Discogs is "Soundtrack", which is what I would like to categorize it under. Currently Bliss marks it as non-compliant and suggests I set the soundtrack to "Rock". This also means most sub-genres (post-rock, trance, house, etc) are marked as invalid and are suggested to set to their parent categories (Rock, Electronic).

                                  I can see how this could be a non-issue, as most of the time…

                                    • Fix priority and dependency

                                      So you have a list of all the fixiable issues but should they only be clickable if they do not upset another clickable fix of say incorrect path (especially when you have auto move set) Or even would be helpful if the fixes are given priorities over other fixes so like a priority system that you should click on 1st before anything else?(perhaps with a coloured red green blue highlighted key ) Just so you know what you should click 1st beore a rescan

                                      • Resourses or Throttle or Set priority of functions

                                        What about a number tag or slider bar to throttle bliss altogether i.e run in background or half or full according to resouses ?

                                        I dont know if there would be any benefit or possibilty of doing this according to different functions or parts of Bliss.

                                        However just a thought so that if using the PC or NAS to stream at the same time I could set Bliss to background or even pause quickly

                                        All teh best Ian.

                                        • Save whole different multiple configurations & restore from file/location

                                          Useful feature would be to be able to save & reload diffierent configs for dirrent family library preferences, situations or experimentation so you can save & reload say Sarahs,Toms, Dick, Harry music .

                                          Also usefulif I have to reload Bliss onto a different PC / Nas due to failure of system or upgrade etc. Then all I need is a simple saved file that was previously backed up somewhere rather than trying to remember all the various tag settings etc. Perhaps even the whole database so it doesnt have to rescan 1000s of files.

                                          Thoughts on a post card
