Hi all,

I've been trying to supress the display of multiple artists in my artist list. For instance, I currently see...

* Adam Duritz
* Adam Duritz/Ben Mize/Charlie Gillingham/Dan Vickrey/David Bryson/Matt Malley
* Adam Duritz/Charlie Gillingham/Counting Crows
* Adam Duritz/Charlie Gillingham/Counting Crows/Dan Vickrey
* Ben Mize
* Charlie Gillingham
* Counting Crows
* Dan Vickrey
* David Bryson
* Matt Malley

And I only want to see the individual artists:
* Adam Duritz
* Ben Mize
* Charlie Gillingham
* Counting Crows
* Dan Vickrey
* David Bryson
* Matt Malley

Changing the Multiple Items in Tags options seems to have no effect, so I assume that the database uses that setting to parse the tags, but doesn't prevent SlimServer from listing all the various combinations.

Is there a setting to do what I want?

Thanks!
Tony

See reference to semicolon for parsing multiple artists.
Also, watch out for legacy tags.

Hi!

Did you get this sorted?
I have the 'MULTIPLE ITEMS IN TAGS' set to ';' (semicolon).
When browsing Gengres 'Home / Gengres', I see the multiple tags as one, for example: 'Pop;Rock'.
I was expecting to see 'Pop' and 'Rock' as two separate gengres.. what could I be doing wrong..?

space after the semi-colon will do the trick
