The <group> token - support for <tag field>

The <group> token is part of the file organisation rule. Used in a file organisation pattern, it creates a folder using a defined number of start characters of the specified field, and then groups child folders under that. For example:

<group:artist name, 1>

… might create the A and B folders in a structure like this (only one character is used, as defined in the pattern):

├─ Adele
└─ Arctic Monkeys
├─ Belle and Sebastian
└─ Blur

Before, <group> only handled certain pre-defined fields. We’ve now combined this with <tag field> to allow any field to be used. So now you can write something like:

<group:tag field:artistsort, 1>

… which would use the ARTISTSORT field from your music files for the grouping.

Other improvements

Some other, smaller fixes:

  • For ID3v2.2 tags, use the correct DISCNUMBER field ID when removing said fields.
  • On the untagged page, use the space better for the folder path and allow the folder path to be shown fully when clicked.
