Hi,

I would like to find or create a custom menu that I can use to list all songs by the artist. I really cannot remember which album the song I am looking for is on.

Has anyone create a custom menu like this, or can someone show me the way to do this?

Thanks,
Allan

Hi,

Is there anyway of doing this? Either natively or with the custom browse? I find it take forever to find a song without being able to go from artist direct to track.

The software itself is not very quick either, even on the computer I run the server on. At least not nearly as fast as Windows media player.

Thanks,
Allan

Just wondering if my questions are getting posted? I know I see them. But maybe I can only see my own. Can someone reply even if they have no idea how to do it. Just to let me know I am asking in the right or wrong discussion group.

Thanks,
Allan

It's better to post plugin questions in the "Third Party Plugins" section of the forum.

You can do it today by creating a new menu in Custom Browse of the menu type "Filtered Singles" and make sure to empty the "Comment Tag" parameter if you want it to include all songs in your library.

The tracks will be sorted by title, I'm not sure if this is what you want or not.

Thanks for your reply.

I will post my question in the 3rd party apps. I just thought that maybe it was possible to do this without the custom browse.

What I want to be able to do is see all the songs (tracks) by a particular Artist. As I do not always remember what album the song is on. For example, in browse music list, choose Artist then just get a list of all their songs (tracks) for me it does not matter what album the music is on.

I will follow this up in the 3rd party apps group.

Thanks again,
Allan
