    Back Cover Art

    On all my new rips I've been including both the front cover "Folder.jpg" and the back cover as "Rear.jpg" in my album folders. Also as time permits I've been adding rear cover art to the rest of my album folders. Is there any possibility of adding a feature to the LMS WebUI that when I click on the cover and a new tab opens (Chrome and the new Chromium based Edge browser on Win10) with the "Folder.jpg" that a ">" arrow could be added on the right to scroll to either "Rear.jpg" or "Back.jpg"? Then when viewing the back cover have a "<" on the left to scroll back to the front cover.

    Install the Music & Artist Info plugin, then you get Home > Song Info > Local artwork
    extGUI4LMS can also display all images in the album folder

    Thanks for this!

    Installed and it's not quite as straight forward as it sounded. I had to select the "M" item in the list (circled in red) and then I got the "Local Artwork" item in a list of things which calls up small images of what's in the current folder. An image can be clicked to bring up a nice sized picture of the image selected with arrows to move through the images in the folder.

    I thought that somewhere I did something to get the "M" in that list, but I can't find it! Is it just a figment of my imagination or is the "M" always available?

    Orange Squeeze!

    FYI- This plugin also adds the same "Local Artwork" item to the list of things for an album in Orange Squeeze to look at all the local artwork I've stored in the album folder. Dang, now I have to think about scanning any booklets or whatever came with a disc so I can have it available on the couch on my phone or on my PC in the WebUI.

    Again, Thanks!

    That setting was enabled. I tried it with that setting Disable and here's the result, but the "M" is still there. That did eliminate some other buttons though.

    Can I get it to look in a sub-directory of the album folder? I have many rips with sub-directories named "scans", 'Artwork", etc.

    Also, lots of PDFs. Would be nice to be able to read those.

    Yes, that should be possible.

    And that, too. Depends on the device you're using: available in the web
    UI and select apps (iPeng, OrangeSqueeze, SqueezePad, SqueezeControl).

    The Union (Elton John & Leon Russell) came with a PDF booklet and I viewed it both in the WebUI and OrangeSqueeze. A tablet with Orange Squeeze would be way better than my phone for viewing the PDF.

    I mean a sub-directory of the folder where the flacs are. I don't see how to do it. If I enter something relative for "Artwork Folder" like "Artwork" and click Apply it just gets erased.

    Also, the instructions say "You may choose to store all your artwork in a single folder, using the variable filenames option above." What variable filenames option?
