    Thanks - can you explain how the situation isn't handled?

    Normally, each album will have a different album artist, so there would be four separate albums:

    Greatest Hits by Billy Idol
    Greatest Hits by Fleetwood Mac

    ... and so on.

    Yes - I think some level of consistency is also important.

    A similar UI could conceivably be used to communicate what _has_ been done.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    This is a timely request as I'm currently looking into the way we communicate upcoming changes (although outside the album page).

    The challenge is balancing information and *too much* information. The obvious solution is some form of progressive disclosure (a "more detail" button") but this and the expanded panel need to be designed in.

    I think broadly you're right though, it's too confusing and not easy enough to see what will be done. Although, generally speaking, if it's an album level change, all files in an album will have (in this case) the artist tag (and/or album artist) changed.

    Do you mean _all_ albums sorted by year, or have year links and then show _only_ albums in that year?

    Have you done this accidentally yourself? I can't remember ever doing it accidentally...

    You should be able to click "Edit" underneath the cover art, or "Change cover art" on the albums list, and change the art there.

    This will give alternatives and allow you to upload an image.

    So when you say "it would not accept my phots" this sounds like a bug - please send a debug archive "Help" > "Download debug archive" to support@blisshq.com

    Ok. In theory that should work for a small number of singles - in the same way you can have one folder of multiple full albums. However, this wouldn't scale to 4000 tracks at the moment.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Just want to add a clarification here (for anyone reading)...

    When it is said bliss is "album" oriented, what is meant is that it is "release" oriented.

    If you have complete single releases, they should work just as well as albums. For example, if you have the A side, B side and other tracks, and they are in their own folder together.

    It's more "odd tracks" that are the problem, and what is meant by "Singles" in the title. But I can understand the motivation.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Max, maybe see http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/3758349-add-logic-to-conditionally-use-tags-in-filename also?

    Do you have tags that dictate whether a given release is a single, compilation or album? There's such as thing as a COMPILATION tag but no well agreed "single" tag or similar. I ask because it may not always be possible to look the data up - it may be missing for more exotic releases.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Yes, I suppose there's a few ways of cutting this particular cake. Different libraries with different rules is one. Specifying certain directories are ignored for the file org is another.

    I kinda like your original idea though. Seems quite powerful.

    I think this gets a new lease of life with "linked releases".

    An extra option could be added to put an album into "synchronised" mode - whereupon the data contributed from all linked releases overwrites the existing metadata.

    This would've been useful recently when I imported one disc from a multidisc classical release which was incorrectly identified, and the artwork automatically filled in incorrectly. The release title was also badly formed, coming initially from CDDB. The correct release was in the linked releases list.

    It would've been convenient to link to this one release and then also synchronise the data in one step.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    I've had this in mind for a while. What I thought was that markers could appear next to existing metadata saying some online database (probably MB) has different data, with an option to change.

    This data would have to be run through the 'pipeline' to make sure it's valid for your current rule settings. For instance, if MB has a certain genre for an album, then bliss should convert that to something you are allowing (if that rule is enabled).

    I updated the title to be more specific. At the moment it's assumed all tracks are in the same album, and there are fewer than 100.

    Also see http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939/suggestions/1871581 which relates to "odd tracks".

    This is similar to other requests to have different data per track. Note this might cause issues in players, because if an album is shown, what date should be shown for it?

    There are fields for storing the dates of individual recordings, which in principle could be used, but it depends what music player you are using as to the tags it will support.

    Sorry - what do you mean by "route" folders?

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    As per some other ideas here, I often come up against the need to have different rulesets, although sometimes for different reasons, e.g. different rules for compilations

    It's been a long term vision to have a way of "selecting" music to be managed in different ways. Here you might have a selector "album.tracks.size==1 || track.album.isEmpty" (or something) and then any release that matches that gets organised in a different way. Does that make sense?

    Once you do that, it becomes a case of implementing the data points which mean you could differentiate your music. It sounds like it's just odd tracks, so in my example above that's: files with an album with only one track OR files without an album tag. I think that would generally pick out what you wanted.

    Also see:

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    This is a really nice idea. The main question in my mind is: what if one library is a child of another? E.g. say your libraries are C:\music and C:\music\compilations. Should the most specific rules win?

    Having two instances might work if you were strict about the settings, although liable to confusion if both instances are looking at the same files and trying to do different things to them.

    This sounds a bit like rulesets - https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/08/01/ruleset-selecta/

    Yes, I can see it's broken right now - it's not just the thumbnails either.

    I think really a print-friendly output should not include the headers nor the filters.

    Sorry, I missed this one!

    What would be good is if the cover art filename allowed absolute paths to be specified, with tokens.

    So "cover" means store a file called "cover.[whatever]" in the album folders (this is what happens now).

    However, "/covers/<album name>" stores them in the "covers" folder off the root of the library, with the album name as the filename (the same tokens as in the file organisation rule should be used).

    This is going to have an overhaul in the coming weeks, although the initial target is not to use a native browser as such, just make the current browser easier to use.

    We *could* use a native browser, _if_ bliss was running on the same computer that it was being accessed from. This is a very common use case, so it's probably worth doing.

    Typically this would mean a conversion from A or B to DISCNUMBER 1, C and D to 2 etc. However there's also autocoupled releases, where A and D are DISCNUMBER 1, C and B are 2. Luckily that is recorded in our metadata so this is definitely a possibility.
