View Full Version : Not recognising the Underscore

Hello

When I Upgraded to version 5.3.1 for windows the directories that
begin with a Underscore do not seem to be found....even with a clean
of the cache.

The playlists that are created that have a underscore also do not
work.

Anyone have any ideas.

Hi Johnathan,

SlimServer "hides" playlists and directories that start with an
underscore or a period. (And use the underscore and/or period to save
temporary files, like a players current playlist.)

Is this a big problem?

I've also noticed that when browsing the music folder with the current
nightlies running on my WinXP box, the web interface converts all
underscores "_" to spaces " ". So all my genre folders (e.g. "a_Medieval"
to "v_Post_Modern_Minimalist") display with spaces. The browse and play
functionality isn't effected, just the display.

It's a small thing, really, but if one is "browsing the music folder" tree,
shouldn't we see actual folder and file names, rather than an interpretation?
