    Are these albums where the track titles have been corrected? I suppose this is an inconsistency in source databases, therefore we'd have to have a setting in bliss to reconcile this to a consistent form in some way.

    Yeah, I agree on the before/after text. I've been trying to think up a common UI for such changes which would be used on all the screens. As ever it's a case of balancing the real estate required for such a change.

    This is an interesting development of http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1928497-ignore-compliance-for-certain-albums I think - it takes it one step further, giving a _reason_ for 'ignoring' the compliance, as it were.

    Why not just click the button again?

    Yeah, I agree. We could even make the single fix buttons a bit less prominent (currently they can look a bit... ugly) and have a separate "Fix album" button with a pick list for all fixes you want executed, and then a single rescan.

    Nice idea - I think this would have to be built into the existing rules, because otherwise they would conflict (e.g. what would it mean to have the missing tag and remove tag rules configured for GENRE?)

    Cool, thanks for the update. Obviously this approach isn't ideal, but wanted to provide a workaround if you needed it.

    You'd have to use ssh, like in https://www.synology.com/en-global/knowledgebase/DSM/tutorial/General_Setup/How_to_login_to_DSM_with_root_permission_via_SSH_Telnet

    Then:

    cd /var/packages/bliss/target/var/.bliss
    cp setttings settings.bak
    nano settings
    [make the changes then ctrl-o, ctrl-x to save and exist]

    Then restart bliss.

    So, similar to http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/3132936-allowing-for-custom-sizes-and-dimensions-for-the-a

    Workaround: this is possible to do yourself by following these instructions: https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2018/01/09/custom-album-art-sizes/ except change:

    com.elsten.bliss.music.policy.coverartpolicy.CoverArtPolicy.maxDataSizeBytes=262144

    To the number you want...

    Yeah - currently we just use the fingerprints on their own. If we combine this with data online, we could recognise where the fingerprints _should_ be the same.

    Do you have an example album when this happens? If it happens it's not because of the name, it's because the audio is judged to be too similar.

    The Inbox is due to be replaced soon; this is good feedback that can be applied to the new page.

    I'm guessing this is coming from the source databases. There's potential for recognising these albums and enforcing something, I guess.

    Yeah, performing a full rescan (rather than migrating the database) in the case of a change would be a good compromise.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Yes, all new versions initiate a clear and rescan.

    Shall I change the title to "don't clear and rescan on every new version"?

    Nice idea. I get a lot of Cyrillic for Russian composers.

    To avoid the album being used to make corrections you can also click the "Unlink" button in the "Linked Releases" panel.

    Do you want to enter the information about the album, or choose a different album with existing information online? For the latter, see http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/20231899-add-a-capability-to-add-the-correct-linked-release

    I always thought on the settings page somewhere - if you change the file path it would have a consistent track path to update.

    We do already have some examples, how are they not useful?

    In this case, are the tracks all in one folder?

    Are the tracks "odd" tracks, i.e. not alongside other tracks in an album/single/compilation/whatever?

    Interesting idea to have user specified prioritisation... thanks!

    That's cool - note that differing album counts are often because different software counts albums in different ways depending not just on the content of any one tag, but also which tags exist (some may use COMPILATION, some may use the file paths, etc.).

    Obviously I'd prefer bliss to provide the controlled correction environment! Let me know how it doesn't...

    What do you want to do with the resulting CSV?

    So... I think we should merge these ideas, agree?

    And also it is important to try to fix the incorrect assignment of linked releases where possible (but those are separate issues).

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    I just mean that in the albums grid the existing cover art, existing album title and existing deduced album artist are more there for identification to group a bunch of tracks, call it an "album" and use that "album" as the basis for checking for compliance.

    (Attached is an example of bliss showing "Incorrect album artist" which is what I initially thought you were asking for; re-reading it looks like this is more about filters?)

    So, how is this different to http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/31154179-fine-grain-filters-in-the-compliance-is-section ?

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Can you expand a bit - assuming you're talking about the albums "grid" the album name and artist name is already shown - are you referring to something relating to compliance? If there's something wrong with the album name it should also show that.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Thanks, sounds sensible. One other thing - the compliance states that appear in the filter are derived from the currently active rules, so the number you will see depends on your settings. Either way, they don't show anything as detailed as per-tag compliance though.
