Hi
I Recently started on the nightlies again and am running 7/17 6.1b2.
I noticed that if you go to browse music folder in the Web UI, that
instead of having the letters on top that you can click to go directly
to the page containing say albums that start with an "L" it now has page
numbers.
Is this the new math or is there a way to change it back.
Went through the server settings ect.. and didn't see anything obvious.

Thanks

Matt

and you wont. 'new math' is probably a fair enough label from a certain point
of view. BMF was rewritten may days ago with an emphasis on raw speed. It is
basically now a raw folder navigation, with no formatting (infoFormat is
costly). As such, the page headers are also without infoFormatting.

I believe a rework of infoFormat is scheduled for after 6.1 release. Whether
that means it will be fast enough to be used in Music Folder browse, is not
anything I can speculate on.

That's all I can say. If you need more, you can read the other browse music
folder threads.

kdf, I'm not sure if you realize it, but "infoFormat" is pretty meaningless to those of us who haven't been neck deep in the code. Maybe you could explain a little about what it is and how it affects the web interface.

The "infoFormat" code takes a user defined format (Settings -> Formatting), such as:

TRACKNUM. ARTIST - ALBUM (YEAR)

And fills in the appropriate values for each item that is displayed.

Ya that's pretty much how I understood it.
No worries, I'll take a faster Slimserver over a little convenience any
day.
