It just occur to me that it would be reallhy convinient to be able to delete songs or albums from the remote.

Sometimes I hear songs that I would rather delete to free up disk space, but there is no way to do it from the remote, or even from the web interface.

Press and hold ADD places it in the zapped songs playlist. This removes it from the current playlist and marks it (by placing it in the zapped songs playlist) for possible deletion.

Personally speaking, I'd rather not be able to delete files using the remote or even the web interface. I just know I'd accidentally use it.

The way it is with the zapped songs playlist, you have to go through a deliberate process of several steps to delete a file.

I totally agree with Mark. It's not a good idea. I don't want to be afraid of someone accidentally deleting my music (e.g. guests, girlfriend, friends with a different taste, myself...)

you can also just press ADD for a short time to simply delete the song
from the current playlist.

Web interface delete ability depends on the skin as to what and where
you can delete. However, even the default skin has a delete link in
the current playlist listing and for the currently playing track

Why not just deny write access to your music folder? Just read and execute. Have your playlists save to a seperate writeable folder.

oops, sorry. misread all of that. Very bad idea having slimserver
delete files from the filesystem itself. You have to be very careful
in allowing that kind of thing, especially when so many users have a
habit of opening up the web interface to the 'net. It is a big
security concern to allow any kind of writing to the file system, so
slimserver does try to keep it to a minimum.
