  1. Removing folders after files move

    When files are moved by file reorganisation, there are many empty folders everywhere. it become difficult to find which contains files or not.
    maybe a folder whose every file have been moved could be deleted (and parent folder if nothing left in) ...

      • Be Able To Choose Album Art from Your Existing Collection

        For Double Albums, Bliss will sometimes fail to find a matching cover for Disc 2. You may have chosen a particular cover for Disc 1 and then find that the only covers available for Disc 2 do not match. This could be fixed if one of your options for choosing Cover Art was from your existing collection of covers - especially if it was shown in "Most Recently Added" order - you could choose the same cover as you chose for Disc 1 with a couple of clicks. At the moment, my only option is to separately upload cover.jog from…

        • Display Directory name and complete path for manual choosing album art

          When choosing the album art manually nowhere you can know the directory name of the current "album" and that can help alot for choosing the good cover matching good album version

          • Allowing for custom sizes and dimensions for the album art minimum and maximum settings.

            My sonos system allows artwork up to 320kb and 1024x1024, but I can't specify those values (unless I'm missing something). Would be nice if I could add those in a 'Custom' setting.

            • List recently added albums first

              Sometimes album art is added and the album is compliant, but it was a slightly different cover to the one you wanted e.g. special edition.

              An option to list recently added albums first, would be excellent so you can easily see them as they are added, and select alternative album art.

              • To be able to adjust the file tags using web editor PER ALBUM.

                I'm glad to see that the file tags can be adjusted using the tags menu, but the problem is that all files are listed in one big long list, making it extremely clumsy when trying to find and update a single album.
                What would be best if from the album list, just click the album to show all information about the album, and allow anything to be changed, file paths, cover art, file tags, genre, etc.
                In this case making it much easier to update incorrect or missing tags.
                Also it would be good to be able to apply tag…

                • Add options to rescan button to rescan specific types

                  Add more options to the rescan button for rescanning albums of the different statuses, and for forgetting and rescanning albums of specific statuses. I am thinking:

                  * Re-scan all Unknown
                  * Re-scan all Compliant
                  * Re-scan all Non-Compliant
                  * Purge all Unknown and Re-scan
                  * Purge all Compliant and Re-scan
                  * Purge all Non-Compliant and Re-scan

                  I often want to re-scan my collection, but don't need to re-scan the albums which are known as compliant, so being able to re-scan just the ones that need re-scanning would speed things up no end. Especially the ones that are "Unknown".

                  • Handle folders containing Singles

                    I have a main folder called "Full Albums" which contains the folder structures defines in my rules. I also have a number of folders like "Various - 00s", "Various - 90s" etc. Each of this folders contains lots of individual mp3 singles, each mp3 has it's own genre, year and file naming convention (without track numbers).

                    The only way I could think of doing this is allowing multiple music folders, and allowing us to setup rulesets for a each folder (or group of folders).

                    • Override artist case rules to enforce canonical spelling [was: Fix OST/O.S.T.]

                      As discussed previously...

                      Dan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented · August 21, 2015 10:37 ·

                      Adding every artist name would not scale, so I want to solve this alongside the canonical artist rule. I think I could add a checkbox to the rule saying "if the artist is canonically correct, ignore the case rule".

                      That said, OST are an interesting one! http://musicbrainz.org/search?query=OST&type=artist&method=indexed

                      Could you add this as a new idea? The same fix can also be applied to album and track names.

                      • not to rescan all after adding a Genre

                        Each time I allow a new Genre to Bliss starts rescanning every single file.
                        Even if there is a good reason for that I suggest it does so only if requested.

                            • [BIG ONE] Changing bliss to a task queue work flow style.

                              I believe this idea will fundamentally improve the usability of bliss. I purchased bliss in hope it would save me huge amount of time w/ managing a music collection of (5000+ albums and growing...) However, I found bliss saved me some time, but not that much!

                              What I realize is while bliss' idea and its features are great, the productivity issue is in the UI workflow design.

                              Bliss automatically scans library in the background, but most fix actions are designed to be done interactive(in real time). I found I choose the non-compliant album and click on fix, and then *WAIT*…

                                • Control over the case of a file/folder name

                                  Currently bliss always performs case sensitive comparisons of music tags to file/folder names. It should be optional to force bliss to consider what a file/folder name should be in light of a preferred case.

                                  For instance, when using <fileextension> to organise music files by their file type, it would be useful to be able to enforce capitals, otherwise on case sensitive file systems we may end with folders like mp3/, MP3/ and so on.

                                  • Adding a "Restart bliss" option to the web interface.

                                    This is a feature that I did not think would be needed, but with the latest version being released I was not able to see the update from the web UI until bliss was restarted. Since I run bliss on CentOS, there is no provided init scripts and the one I have created only starts bliss so the easiest and quickest way for me to reboot bliss is to bounce my server (which also serves media via SubSonic).

                                    The update process restarts bliss at the end so I assume the code for a restart is already written and could easily…

                                    • add logic to conditionally use tags in filename

                                      i like to name my files with as little info as possible, but as much info as necessary in order to be able to clearly allocate the correct artist, album and track:

                                      <artist> - <album> - <discnumber:nn if greater than 1><tracknumber:nn> - <songtitle>

                                      example for a single disc album song:

                                      Jim Morrison - An American Prayer - 02 - Ghost Song.mp3

                                      example for a multi-disc album song:

                                      Booker T. & The MG's - Time Is Tight - 0208 - Johnny, I Love You.mp3

                                      i suggest to be able to conditionally use tags in the filename such as "IF discnumber >…

                                      • Exception to case rules

                                        When enforcing a title case rule, it should be possible to make an exception for abreviations so that an album can still be compliant.
