    You could set up a reverse proxy on the Synology to provide authentication, e.g. https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/03/07/setting-up-bliss-authentication/

    Thanks - so does this happen to all HTTP traffic to the NAS's IP?

    Hi - can you explain what you mean by "synology servers, configured with HTTPS access" - are you referring to a setting in DSM?

    That's odd - if anything I tend to get comments that we over group!

    Can you click "Help" then "Download debug archive" and send it to us at [email protected] with some example album names?

    The only thing I'd add is that because bliss is written for a different purpose than Plex et al (it's an organiser rather than a player) sometimes the way we present your library has to be a bit different. It might not be the case here, but in some cases Plex might go to lengths to group an album to make it easier to play, but bliss might want to show the album is split, to make it more obvious to re-organise. Hope that makes sense.

    Nice - there are probably some browser plugins that will do this for you. E.g. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/site-color-changer/ (for Firefox) https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/change-colors/ageghplgcapnfpdhapeemolbmfccclke?hl=en (for Chrome).

    I guess an ability to "skin" the interface could be something... if you know CSS you can probably do something yourself with a browser plugin to override the CSS.

    Nice idea. Some people have large folders of assorted files and may only want to tag a subset of them.

    The untagged page *will* use external data. It uses fingerprinting to identify the music, and provide metadata. Assuming the fingerprints are found in the database of course!

    But the other issue - where existing tags aren't shown - is an issue. Co-incidentally I added this to the bug tracker the other day. I've linked this page with it so I can update this when we fix it.

    Yes - I think currently a custom tag might be shown, but all custom tags may be combined into one cell. E.g. a TXXX field.

    Makes sense - I can see how that would be useful for playback. I'm a bit surprised there's such a need for organisation of music, but life's full of surprises :-)

    Sounds nice, but quite complicated! Do you actually have a need for this? In most families I find there's one person responsible for organising the music, but maybe this isn't a family group?

    This sounds a bit like some ideas I've had around "post actions" - something done to music when compliance is assessed. It could be moving files... but it could also be telling a music player about the change (for example).

    Not sure if it helps as a workaround, but the rules are stored in files with the name "settings". If you have just one set of rules, it's just "settings". This should be in:

    Windows: C:\Users\[username]\.bliss
    macOS: /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/bliss
    Linux: /home/[username]/.bliss

    Sounds like you almost want to save groups of rules, and be able to switch between them?

    I think this is actually a bug. I'll look into it.

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

    Do you mean on a per-album basis?

    If you mean globally for all albums, why not just remove from the settings page - is it basically a quicker way of doing that what you want?

    @Pete Yes, I don't think we can do that right now - it's the wipe-then-fallback-to-original that we are missing.

    What if it worked from the point of view of genres first - you could think of it as a table of genres, and then if you update that genre, all albums with that genre would be updated? That way you can change to the consolidated list of genres. It assumes that all albums for a genre want to have their genre changed in the same way.

    I don't understand why the custom genre column would be needed?

    Thanks. Internal to bliss there is a genre tree. It's here -> http://www.blisshq.com/app/genre-tree . When bliss encounters a genre not in the allowed list, it looks in the genre tree and looks up, parent by parent, until it encounters an allowed genre and suggests that.

    Currently this tree is fixed, static.

    For your case, this would imply Jazz parenting "Stride Piano" etc. It would also suggest a way of editing the tree itself as part of the configuration... or maybe simple "parent of" relationships between genres can be stored and shared by bliss users to make the genre tree both more accurate and more complete.

    I initially thought I would have to merge this idea elsewhere because people have asked me about it so much by email etc... but it turns out it isn't on the ideas forum yet!

    Here's one which is close, but I want to keep the ideas separate because they have different intents: https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/9161260-move-music-files-between-libraries

    Also see https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/4191110--big-one-changing-bliss-to-a-task-queue-work-flow which has some overlap.

    This idea would qualify under a broad idea I've had called "post actions" which means: once an album matches a given state (say: it is compliant) then perform some action.

    Ideally, to improve maintenance, these actions would be derived from the potential rules encoded in bliss. I've also thought about making these actions available on a manual invocation basis for each album (e.g. just an action on the album page to change the capitalisation of tracks, or whatever), but that's another subject!

    @Markus do you mean if you have nested directories? E.g.

    All Things Must Pass/
    - Disc 1/
    - Track 1.flac
    - Track 2.flac
    - Disc 2/
    - Track 1.flac
    - Track 2.flac
    - cover.jpg

    You're referring to "cover.jpg"?

    The URL that you would need to paste would have to be the direct one to the image. You can find it by clicking an image on the album overview. For example: http://localhost:3220/thumbnail/LCD+Soundsystem/This+Is+Happening/?1330939691913

    Yeah, good point. This is something I have wondered about before, briefly. It would be very useful for those multi disc albums as you say.

    This seems a common request for DJs inparticular.

    Did you see:

    - https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1871581-handle-folders-containing-singles
    - https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/42192883-mark-as-singles

    Do they cover similar ground?

    I assume you mean "singles" as an individual track rather than an actual single release (which often, although not always, contain other tracks). In that case, "album" is synonymous with "single" - what it really means is "release".

    What appears to be happening here is some confusion around what is denoted the "album artist" for the album.

    We choose the album artist based on:

    - The ALBUM_ARTIST tag
    - The ARTIST tag
    - The COMPILATION tag
    - The location of the files (which act as a grouping indicator - the file/folder names are not used)

    If "Various" is chosen at any point, this normally means the album was combined for some reason - is it a compilation, or are the files in the same folder?

    Thanks - what do you mean by music "assignment"? Do you mean lookup so that Plex can find information about music?

    Thanks for this.

    This can already be done with the file organisation rule if the \ImportMusic folder is in the same root as the music folder.

    If it's important that \ImportMusic is separate, then https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/9161260-move-music-files-between-libraries would work, with the proviso that the "target" isn't being analysed.

    Agree?
