Indexing with ArtistSort

RE: Indexing with ArtistSort
Aha! The tagValue linkage is useful to know. I'll find some time to think this through and experiment. Thank you again for your assistance - it's a remarkable programme and when I've got the basics sorted out (or should I say Artist-sorted out!), I look forward to exploiting its further possibilities. But, as in so many matters, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!

RE: Indexing with ArtistSort
Just to say that everthing is now resolved and displaying as I wish. Thank you again for the programme and the help.

If I may make one suggestion for the User Guide. I found, particularly after implementing 'mergeFolderAlbums:true', that the server was not reading all the changes (or not reading them correctly) after restarts and rescans. But things got dramatically better when I changed startupScan from 'true' to 'full'. It's an obvious thing to do if you know the option is there but I didn't remember it from chapter 1 of the User Guide. My suggestion would be to highlight the usefulness and availability of the 'full' option at other points in the Guide where structural or other major data adaptations may require a full scan for successful implementation.

Structural changes don't require a full scan. The only time this should be needed is when you have been using a tagging program that doesn't update the "last modified" timestamp of the file when making tag changes.

A full scan is much slower than a normal scan, so it is not recommended to have this as a permanent setting.
