Full Version: Alphabetical Listing In Artists

Is it possible after selecting Artists to see an alphabetical listing of folders, A, B, C etc. with the relevant artists available within each folder. At present I get a listing of all artists in alphabetical order which is a bit unmanageable?
Thanks

You can use the alphaGroup property to do this. See this section of the User guide for details.

Thanks. I read that section, and couldn't understand it. I have Artists in IndexTags, do I add something after this to get what I want.

From that section:

To use this feature, set the alphaGroup property to a comma-separated list of index tag names or other container names for which alphabetical grouping should be enabled.

In your case, the index tag for which you want to do this grouping is Artist, so you need to set the alphaGroup property to the value:

Artist

Note: In your posts, you have referred to Artists as the tag name. I have assumed you meant to say Artist.

So the only index tag I have is "Artist". How do I set the property of alphaGroup to this tag?

The alphaGroup property is the second field in the properties dialog that you get when you select Properties from the minim icon.

Thanks, I spent ages looking for something to add in the index tag field, not realising I should have been using a different field altogether. Sometimes the solution is very straightforward, and you are expecting something more complicated!!
Minimserver is working perfectly now thanks!!
