Hi there from Germany,

I'm using Slimserver 5.4.1 with a Squeezebox.
I have a directory for every album with the cover in it,
e.g. for "Band" with "Album" it's the dir "Band - Album", the cover
is named "band_-_album_a.jpg".
Every space of the name is replaces by an underscore.
That's the default name from a internet-donwload of the covers.
How can I receive the covers in Slimserver.

Thx
Tobias

Go to "Server Einstellungen/Interface/Plattencover". There you will find
instructions and the text field to define your file names. I guess it will
be something like "%ARTIST_-_%ALBUM.jpg".

you just need the % at the start %ARTIST_-_ALBUM, and jpg will be assumed as
well. It was a cheapest way I could think of to flag the setting as variable
vs fixed, without creating yet another form box :)
