Hi All,

1st post:

Is there a way to browse the "New Music" folder by Artist Name, instead of Album Name? I can never remember which artist wrote which album!!

Thanks,

Olly.

The sort order is from newest to oldest and cannot be changed, but you
CAN display the Artist alongside album names with newer versions of
slimserver (not sure when this feature first appeared): Server Settings
-> Formatting -> Show Artist with Albums [Enabled]

The TrackStat plugin have a statistic list that shows "Last added artists" which I think should be what you want. It requires slimserver 6.2 or later.

Note that this setting only affects the web console, not the Squeezebox's
display.
