Synology Bliss - Albums page genre suggested & custom tag
On the albums page & on showing the fixes would it be possible to amalgamate the suggested genre with the custom genre that may have been set by the user. Then only one genre tag button to deal with?

So ref the dual genre idea.
Admit I dont know the full repercushions or the best way to go about it, however
THE IDEA & THEORY
Have a "readonly suggested genre" next to an "editable genre" tag/field so the user can see both at once.
1) On first run Bliss goes out on line & finds the best genre for the file. (as currently)
2) This genre is then copied into the both genres areas
3) Bliss then tags the file according to the "custom genre"
4) The end user can now edit the "custom genre" to a more apt built in recognised genre as required. (Bliss will stop a null value been entered here)
5) Bliss now sets the tag according to the "custom genre"
This dual "custom genre" tag would be seen & editable on any pages where the current genre can be edited.
a) Somehow stop the custom tag from been over written when already populated either on subsequant scans or when manually changed by the user. A lock/unlock radio button or reset that copies the readonly back over all "custom genres"
b) Dont know if the "read only genre" to save any confusion should be shown as "suggested genre"
Hope this explains it better
When you say "a genre set by the user" are you referring to the genre consolidation rule (the list of permitted genres)?
If so, is this genre then allowed on all albums, or just this one? If it's just this one, that's quite a lot more work.

Just revisitting this again and What I was thinking is that rather than having an auto button for genre on the albums page is have a dual one. So if there was a genre set by the user but bliss found a possible more apt genre then alow the user to see both and make a choice between the x2. e.g a track was set by the user to "heavy rock" but bliss thinks it is "heavy metal" then have a LH & RH fix button to show the x2 genres & pending which genre is clicked then this is set..... Just an idea to possibly help quickly see what may of been previously entered by the user.
Can you send a screenshot of this to firstname.lastname@example.org ?
