    genre listing suggestion

    Christine,

    As long as you're using 6.0, replace the "," with a "/" and you should have
    what you want I think. Alternatively, change the "multiple items in tags"
    settings (Server Settings->Behaviour) to "," and you should also get what
    you want. Bare in mind that this setting seems to work on all tags (or a
    range of them at least) so if you use "," elsewhere in tags you might get
    some funny results in searches.

    AFIK this is a change from the behaviour of 5.X; I'm not sure if this is a
    bug or a feature. The only reason I say this is that "Rock/Pop" is a
    recognised genre type as far as I can tell but Slimserver now splits it up
    to two genre categories Rock and Pop, both containing the same tracks (same
    content, that is, as long as you don't use "Rock" or "Pop" only for some
    tracks). I'm pretty sure that 5.X kept the "Rock/Pop" genre in one piece.
    I'm not too hung up about this as I don't really use genres much at present.

    Cheers,

    James

    This could be in the update in which will happen tonight, since the server
    is freshly installed but if not...

    some of the files I have, have multiple genre listings separated by commas.
    Was wondering if the "browse by genre" listings could be a little smart and
    show those items as well. I.E. If I wanted to make an 80s playlist and go
    to the 80s genre folder, it would also include mp3s that have the genre
    "post punk,80s", "synthpop,80s", "hard rock,80s" and so forth.

    thanks,

    --- Christine

    5.x definitely behaved the same way -- I've been using this feature on
    my collection all along with 5.4 and 5.4.1. The change in 6.0 might be
    the default separator -- I think in 5.x it was ";" (at least that's the
    separator I'm currently using), not "/".
