    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.

    Sounds like a sensible one we can automate...

    Could you give some examples of album and artist names this leads to? I assume you're just talking about album and artist?

    This sounds like http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/31738582-derived-tags , would you agree?

    Agree - if an album is named incorrectly and an album is "split" this will mean duplication detection will not work across that album - the album name needs to be fixed first.

    Yeah, this is confusing. It should be a red X or a green tick. I'll watch out for this.

    Yeah - I was actually wondering if simply varying the case of the token would be elegant:

    <TRACK NAME>
    <track name>
    <Track name>
    <Track Name>

    Unfortunately it's difficult to communicate all capitalisation possibilities in that way. But simply "parameterising" the token could work:

    <track name:uppercase>
    <track name:lowercase>
    <track name:sentencecase>
    <track name:titlecase>

    Yeah, I can understand. Personally I would suggest just performing a copy to a consistent name. How you'd do this depends on your OS...

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Yeah - you can't. _All_ of the filenames are used. I can see the use here (I think) - you want to just work with what you have. But wouldn't you also rather change all artwork to a common name, if you could?

    Yeah, that's right. Maybe you want something like http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2739754-automatically-complete-album-artist ?

    The reason I'm a bit reticent to add AA editing functionality to the album page is it makes it (the page) more complicated. If you don't know anything about AA then you have to ask yourself the question - what's the difference between these two artists?

    Another approach would be to make the Tags panel easier to multi-paste, e.g. select the AA column and ctrl+V.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    When you edit the artist name, if the AA tag is already set, the changed artist name will be used for AA.

    Does this relate to when you have a missing AA?

    Thanks for adding this. I think this occurs for releases > 99 tracks. It was done as a short term (ish) workaround to memory problems if a large album was fingerprinted. We could definitely do something to fix this though...

    Why not just add "Folder" as the image name in the missing art rule?

    Or are you saying you want the ability to rename the image file?

    Note you can add your own genres - type "Cajun" then press the tab or comma key.

    I'm guessing it comes from audio fingerprinting...

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Yes; at the moment we don't allow a separate manual search, and picking the releases to link could be easier.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Good point. Also, more generally, we could attempt to lower the score of albums which aren't from the locality of the user. Or maybe that's trying to be too clever.

    Thanks for posting this - my initial reaction was: "that's already done" - then I realised it's just track name and number that's done...

    Thanks - I ran into this myself today. You're right - it's when there is no write access.

    Don't you think this is specific to the system though? For example, I have a "music" user on my home server and that's what bliss runs as. That's not appropriate to everyone and is, in fact, an impediment for quick set up.

    Generally I would advise *never* to install/run as root. Well, maybe install, but with subsequent changes to make sure it doesn't run as root.

    I agree this is a problem. Two other potential solutions:

    1) Don't rescan, just save the update to the allowed list (pop up a message to say a rescan will be required).
    2) Add a confirmation before the rescan begins.
