Tagging - Nearly There!

Tagging - Nearly There!
OK. I've managed to get the Artists etc sorted alphabetically. Yippee!
However, I still have a couple of queries:
When I click on an artist, I am presented with a choice of albums sorted alphabetically. The choice is show all. When I click on that, I get another choice of View all. I want to go straight to a list of albums by the artist I have chosen. Any ideas, please?

My apologies, but the highlighted quotes confuse me.
They appear to suggest you are getting the display of albums you want but clearly you are not seeing what you want.
Would you be able to provide examples to clear up my confusion?

The menu with "View all" should also contain "Hide contents". This is used to ensure that a control point "play all" action from a higher-level selection doesn't add duplicate or unwanted items to the playing queue. See this section for more information.

1. When I open up Linn Kinsky, I get a choice of the following:
[V] Albums
[X] Items
[Y] Playlists
[Z] artists
where V-Z are the numbers of Albums, Items, Playlists & Artists.
2. When I click on artist, I get a choice of the following;
>>Show All
A
B.....
Z
Where A - Z are individual folders
3. When I click on, for instance, A, I get a list of artists beginning with A.
4. When I click on, for instance, A Silver Mt Zion, I get the following choices:
16 items
>>Show All
B
H
5. When I click on >>Show All, I get
>>Hide Contents
View All
6. When I click on View All I get a list of all the albums by A Silver Mt Zion.
What I am trying to achieve is to go from step Step 4 to Step 6 without having to click on >>Show all & View All. In other words I want to be able to click on an artist & be presented with a view of all that artists albums.

Please see my reply in post #3 for an explanation of why this appears.

Hi, Simon,
I take it that this behaviour came in with the release of V5.4? Certainly, I did not have this problem with the test build you sent me of MinimServer-0.8.4.8-readynas-arm.bin.
Oh well, I shall revert to the test build.

RE: Tagging - Nearly There!
In step 4, you aren't seeing a list of all albums because your alphaGroup setting is preventing this. Instead of reverting to the test build (which won't make any difference), you should set alphaGroup to 'Artist' instead of 'all'. This will group artists alphabetically without doing this for albums.

Ah, now I understand. Thank you for the update.
I had assumed that you had only set grouping on the Artiist list.

Not surprised that Simon grasped the issue instantly.

Thank you Simon, that sorted it. Sorry for being a nuisance.
