Qnap : config file overwritten
Hello again,

when i edit minimserver.config on a qnap server, some lines of the config files are overwritten when the server restart.

for example, when i change the lastIndexTags to :
minimserver.lastIndexTags = Artist, Genre, Conductor, Orchestra, Date
it change back to :
minimserver.lastIndexTags = Artist, Date, Genre, All Artists, Composer, Conductor, Orchestra
when restart.

how can i avoid this ?

BTW is my config file looks correct ?

minimserver.contentDir = /share/Classique
minimserver.license = 0.8.1
displayName = Classique
.logFile = /share/Public/minimserver.log
minimserver.lastIndexTags = Artist, Genre, Conductor, Orchestra, Date
minimserver.lastItemTags =
minimserver.relaunchScan =
minimserver.tagOptions = Album.sortTags\={Album, Artist}
minimserver.udn = 0b15f9aa-ff2e-49f9-b69e-66e3f6ef1b19
minimserver.previousAlbumArtistDisplayRole = true
minimserver.tagCustom = AlbumArtist.displayRole\={artist}, Composer.displayRole\={artist}
minimserver.tagFormat = Artist.displayFormat\={$artist$conductor$orchestra$date^^^ | }
minimserver.configVersion = 0.8.131


thank you very much !

You shouldn't be editing this file directly. If you need to change the MinimServer configuration, you should use the graphical or console interface described on this page. Editing the file directly is not supported or recommended and can cause unexpected or incorrect results.

Why are you editing this file and trying to change this line?

Ah, sorry about that, i didn't noticed there was all the options in minimwatcher ! I red again the documentation and my configuration is almost ok...
Here is what i put in tagFormat :
1) Artist.displayFormat={$composer$conductor$orchestra$date^^^ | }
works fine, taken from the docs
2) Title.displayFormat={$tracknumber$title^ - } (or indexFormat, i tried both)
I want to the show the titles (when browsing) like this : 01 - example of track
but it doesn't work, it show just : -example of track instead
3) Composition.indexFormat={$composer$composition^ | }
when browsing by composition i'd like to see it like that : Berlioz | La symphonie fantastique
Here it doesn't work, i have an error when restarting the server
4)Album.displayFormat={$album^$conductor^ (^) }
I would like to have when browsing Le vaisseau fantôme (Solti) and here it works fine i'm just surprised this is not indexFormat

Any ideas ?

BTW many thank for your awesome support Simon !

For this to work, Tracknumber must appear in itemTags and your files must contain Tracknumber tags.

For this to work, both Composition and Composer must appear in either itemTags or indexTags.

The indexFormat setting only affects entries in index lists. An index list is the list that you see when you click on a menu index that corresponds to an entry in the indexTags property.

Still have an issue here.
Composition & composer are both in indexTags.
my indextags line :Genre:Style, Composer:Compositeur, Conductor:Chef d'orchestre, CompositionTongueièce, Orchestra:Orchestre, Date
my itemTags line :
Tracknumber, Album, CompositionTongueièce, Composer:Compositeur

(here when i don't put the 'alias' name it does not work)

when starting the server it says : incorrect tag for 'Composition' in proprety 'tagFormat"

when i change
Composition.indexFormat
to Composition.displayFormat

the server is starting but of course it doesn't do what i want.

I didn't notice that you are trying to specify Composition.indexFormat. The indexFormat option is available only for Artist, as mentioned in the first paragraph of this section.
