As marked in red: Is there any way to remove the play/pause button?
(the one that is in the expanded panel — I think that's how it's called.) by checking a box inside of MB or by tweaking it in the skin's.xml?
No, there doesn't seem to be. It's just one of those features with no need for configuration options.
With it there, it's not hurting anybody. On the other hand, if it wasn't there...well, those who deem it useful would then miss out.
Having said that, please know that you can always post a wishlist request if you feel that strong about it.
I already spend hours on end on social media. Might as well spare a few of those to a greater purpose here.

Assuming your custom tag for 'explicit' is <Explicit>,

    • Create a virtual tag:
    - label:
Explicit album
    - formula:
$If($Sum(<Explicit>,<Album>)>0,Explicit,)

    • Then as a highlighting rule for your Albums view use 'Explicit album' has a value.  


OK, so this worked exactly how I needed it! I read the whole virtual tag post and couldn't understand how $Sum() worked, lol. Now that I know how to get it to work, It will help me a lot with other statistics tags, thank you!!

Loving the look can you show me the steps you took to achieve this for the explicit tag ??  I use the tag itunesadvisory and can't seem to get it to work

I'm assuming most set up a Custom Tag to achieve this.
I use the <Keywords> multi-value tag and add "explicit" to any songs that are such.
Then I use an $If() function Virtual Tag to display the explicit symbol if a file's <Keywords> tag contains the word "explicit."
