View Full Version : Browse Playlists Changed?

Before I file a bug, I thought I'd check here for something
stupid I've missed.

I've created a significant hierarchy of playlists based on the
source (for example, a dir-tree of Magnatune playlists sorted by
genre). Previous to my latest upgrades, when I would "Browse
the Playlists," it would allow me to follow the directory tree,
which is what I wanted.

Now, it seems, every m3u file in the entire playlist directory
chain is being listed together. So, by illutration, Browse
Playlists used to "look" like this:

Browse --->
magna ----> ambient ----> Rapoon.m3u*
npr blues
radio1234 metal
whatever

Now, I just get ALL of the m3us in each of the subdirs above,
sorted by alpha. One long, hard to nav list.

Have I missed some server setting?

This is with the latest 6.2 nightly and started, by my notice,
with one of the nightlies in the last few weeks.

Thanks.

Chip,

This was changed largely due to the new database architecture, but it seems for folks with configurations like yours, it's a big hindrance. There is some discussion about this in our bug database, though:

...yes, I filed a bug (after searching, promise!) that Dan
spotted and duped, which was the right thing to do. This is
*definitely* a feature change that zaps me. Frankly, I can't
imagine who would want it the new way, but that's just me. I
have hundreds of playlists, nicely sorted, that are now very
difficult to manage.
