Add a goto folder in finder/explorer button to album detail page
have a button to open an album's folder in the os on the album detail page to let the user manually examine/fix files/folder.

Hey, just started to use bliss to clean up my mess of a library and loving it so far. This would be a huge feature to implement for me as I do have non-released mashups and other one offs that were bundled in with the original album. This is causing the whole album to flag and the simple fix (for me) is to move it to its own folder.
If you could implement a pop-up file browser within the Bliss UI where I could move and edit files, that would be brilliant. Thanks!
As it's unlikely browsers will lower their security standards, I can't see a link to the folder ever being a possibility.
Since https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2018/03/01/release-20180301-album-tags/ we've had the ability to see the folder name. In addition I've added the ability to copy/paste to the next beta.
The final option is to add a file based browser to bliss, and link to that. If there's some support for changing this idea to support that, I can change this idea's title. Otherwise, I'll mark it declined.
It depends what you mean by "bring the user to the location in the file system where the represented album exists".
It's hard to just pop up an instance of Windows Explorer pointing at that folder.
Chrome won't even let you open file:// links *at all* when the original content is served over http.
However, if you just want to see the locations listed so you could copy and paste into Explorer, that's easy.
I'd like to add a vote for this feature request, and see if there's a way to talk through options you may have. Reading this thread I do recognize you're server-side and also the product is browser-based, so there are limitations.
Could a presentation-template hack add anything that would bring the user to the location in the file system where the represented album exists? I'm noticing that the adjustments or repairs that I'd like to make involve going to the location where the content lives, making an adjustment, and re-scanning. It would be a HUGE help if there was a simple way to get to the directory where the content lives. Maybe a directory icon next to the "why" pull-down below the album art.

Yes it would help!
I like the intent of this idea. There's a fundamental problem though, in that bliss is designed as much to work on servers as it is a local desktop or laptop. If bliss is installed on a different computer you cannot open up the OS's file navigator to that location.
This is why the 'Browse' button, when choosing your music library, doesn't show the standard OS navigator, it shows the file system for the server that bliss is installed on.
If bliss listed the actual files within the Web UI, would that be ok? Were there things you know could not be achieved by doing this? I guess I'm asking what sort of things you would do with the OS navigator.
