"A" & "The" also codec bit rate - mikeesnz - 27-05-2017 22:30

I am brand new to Minim server and am switching from Foobar2000. I would like to replicate "swap the "A" and "The" prefix in artists names" this is so The Beatles comes out under B and not T
Also I would like to have a section which is Codec and also Bit Rate which would be great. This way it would be easy to see my hi res music. Thanks

Welcome to the forum and Minimserver

For A and The see ignore under tag option on this page of the manual:
http://minimserver.com/ug-library.html

For Codec and Bit Rate see Special index and item tags on this page of the manual:
http://minimserver.com/ug-browsing.html

Post back if it's not clear

Hi, I've just got a new Asustor NAS drive and using Minimserver
I've read the above, followed the links but it's all gobbledegook to me. I am not a computer programmer.
I got as far as trying to access the scripting but no matter what I typed in the address bar it just said service not available or a similar message

Yes, NAS drive is switched on and awake
Are there any easy to follow guides anywhere?

I want to ignore THE and have album list present in chronological order

The other method is to use the ArtistSort, AlbumArtistSortfields (these can be edited in a tag editor) and then configure MinimServer to use these for sorting. So the the ArtistSort for 'The Beatles' would be 'Beatles'

Then you would modify the configuration as follows:

itemTags: artistsort, albumartistsort

tagValue:artist.value.sort={artistsort},albumartist.value.sort={albumartistsort}​
