  1. Date formatting rule (e.g. trim the date field to just the year)

    It would be helpful if you could force the date field to be just the year - as in, 1997/02/28 to simply 1997

        • Auto tag compilations

          bliss should auto tag compilations. I would like bliss to tag every album that has either Various Arist (or some other similar moniker in a defined set) in Album Artist tag with the compilation tag and tag every album that has the compilation tag with the same Various Artists title in the Album Artist tag.

          See also http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1760321-add-setting-for-compilation-directory-name-seems- which occurs because the "various artists" alias in bliss is hardcoded to "Various".

          The reason for me wanting this is so that I can get control over all my compilationalbums when I look through my album collection on my music player. If…

            • Automatic tag completion

              I expected Bliss to fix missing tags automatically (genres, years, etc.). I have around 3,000 albums in my library, over 1,000 of which don't have a year. I was surprised that a scan didn't automatically fix this. Instead, I need to go to my "Inbox" and tell it to fix these, but only up to 96 at a time - that's over 100 clicks to fix them all (hardly automated). Can't Bliss be set to automatically fix anything you put in your criteria without so much manual intervention?

              • Capability do delete inconsistent entries in the database

                After changing title or artist tag of an album with an external program, bliss' automatic reorganization of files and folders makes the changes accordingly but leaves the previous entry in an inconsistent state, showing 'Unkown' and a number of errors. It would be useful if the compliance filter could be added with an entry to filter these albums, giving a resulting page where each album found has a delete button to get rid of these inconsistencies, instead of doing a complete rescan of the music library.

                • Ability to enter Freedb ID directly. Instead of bliss having to search for the artist/album

                  I have a few discs that Bliss cant find, but i find them quite easy on MusicBrainz, there is also a FreeDB ID wich could be copied and pasted into Bliss.

                  • Bliss Docker Container

                    With the introduction of Docker to a number of NAS devices, in my case Sinology, it would be great to have a Docker Container to enable Bliss to run.

                    • Better log output.

                      Right now there isn't really any way to tell what is going on... Why not print messages to somewhere like "Embedded artwork from X into Y files of Z album"?

                      • Display more files

                        Redesign the main interface page to take up less real estate and dedicate more lines for the display read out.

                        I have Thousands of files and viewing them on a screen 96 at a time is difficult. Increasing the default to 250 or 500 or 1000 or all would be awesome.

                        Also tighten up the display a smaller font and no lines spacing between the lines would be helpful

                        • Use of ORIGINAL Release date instead of Reissue date and Album Label / Publisher

                          As a long time collector the original release date has always been important to me for at least a couple reasons. Take a jazz artist like Miles Davis as a simple example whose work spans 4 decades. Knowing where a particular album falls historically within his body of work has more relevance / usefulness in my opinion than a reissue date that will continue to change over & over. Additionally, original release dates really help keep things in perspective for those of us that have been listening obsessively for years. It used to be easy to know approximately where music…

                                • Re: Album artist. Blissgives me no choice in determining what I prefer as a "compliant" entry.

                                  Re: Alblum artist. Bliss defaults to the found alblum artist, but gives me no choice in determining if I want that as a "compliant" entry. For example; in the 1987 album Anything Goes, the "complaint" album artist enrty according to Bliss is "1987 Original Broadway Cast". But I would prefer "Various" or Various Artist. When I make that change with a tag editor, the album remains uncomplaint, but THAT is the way *I* would prefer it, so when I sort via artist in my preferred player, this album shows up correctly FOR me.

                                  • Add a table/details overview (in addition to the grid)

                                    Iit would be good to have a list/table view with album names down the left, and columns for other aspects like artist names, compliancy of different rules and maybe shortcuts to functionality, e.g. changing the art, file paths or tags within the overview screen.

                                    The analogy are file explorers: typically they allow grid/thumbnail views as well as detail views where files can be ordered by different columns, and different metadata about the files can be viewed in the column cells.

                                    Just as with the grid view, you would be able to filter by compliance or startsWith. The option would likely…

                                    • White list of tags - Remove all others

                                      One of my work on mp3 tags is to clean them.
                                      Some rippers automatically add useless informations in tags..

                                      For my use, I just want these tags :
                                      - Artist / Album artist
                                      - Trackname
                                      - Album
                                      - Tracknumber
                                      - Genre
                                      - Date (year)

                                      Is it possible to automatically delete others tags?

                                      • process improvements.

                                        I am processing 170,000 files. So I have some comments on this very good software...
                                        1) Please allow me to auto-accept size and track number changes without clicking each album
                                        2) Please have some intelligence in the Genre such that "country" automatically becomes "Country", (as well as "Singer-Songwriter --> Singer/Songwriter", "R&b --> R&B"), etc. And let me autoaccept those
                                        3) Please give me a way to clear out all uncessary information that is not part of the standard IDV tags (and clear out any comments, etc, that are part of the tags standard but are not necessary).
                                        4) Please don't…

                                        • Adding a "right click" to analyze tags and art with BLISS.

                                          Adding a "right click" to analyze tags and art with BLISS. This would allow a way to check a mp3 without having to do a full scan with BLISS.
