Questions / Re: Release data formatting (slashes or dashes?)« on: January 13, 2022, 09:37:06 PM »
Awesome, thank you for your help. = )

It sort depends on whether you're using ID3, APE or VORBIS tags.
If the latter two, you can put whatever you want, but if the former, MB will eventually split the YEAR tag into both a YEAR and DATE tag to conform to the ID3 specifications, and uses a slash to separate the month and day."Original release date" would be month, date, year, while "original release year" would be only the year. Hiccup will correct me if I'm wrong.
By the way, your request isn't really related to the original request in this thread.Oh whoops, I interpreted his post as wanting to set sorting/grouping settings on a per-artist/per-album basis. I guess I might be misunderstanding it then, my bad.
Maybe a moderator could move it to a separate thread and give it a suitable name...?
Try creating a custom tag and adding that tag to the Sorting/Grouping settings.That's a good idea. I had been trying to use "set subtitle" and another related virtual tag for this grouping at first, but it broke it all up in a similar way, except more fragmented... Using "disc #" was the closest results I could get out of it to what I was looking for. Just tried the custom tag and it made everything group together just the way I wanted. Thanks for the advice!
Then you can tell MusicBee to display separate disc art for just the albums that need it, instead of all of them.
(I'm not sure what you've done for Set Subtitle, but that might work too)
$If(<Disc Count>>1,$IsNull(<Set Subtitle>,"➢ Disc "<Disc#>,"➢ Disc "<Disc#>" || "<Set Subtitle>),$IsNull(<Set Subtitle>,,<Set Subtitle>))
