    Simple Questions Not so smooth...

    Ok, it seems I posted too many questions in one email!

    Could someone perhaps answer these specific questions for me? (using
    slimserver 5.3.1, slimp3 on XP):

    1. Using the default server formatting config (TITLE), browsing by
    directory for MP3 gives a sort order of 'artist', then 'title', HOWEVER,
    for FLACs it sorts them by 'title' first! Why??

    2. Why does the default formatting of (TITLE) display as 'title' by
    'artist' from 'album' ? I ask because it doesn't seem consistent with
    the other format definitions, e.g. if I just put 'artist', then that's
    all I see, when I might have expected it to say 'artist' with 'title'
    from 'album'.

    3. In the formatting config, what determines that the display will use
    'with', 'from' etc? In other words, what I really want is the format
    'artist' with 'title' from 'album', but if I put these filler words in
    manually then they are all in bold font, making it hard to read. The
    default seems to put words like 'with', 'from' in a non-bold format
    compared to the artist name etc.

    Thanks,
    Pascal.

    this is the way the skin is designed, assuming just TITLE in titleformat. If
    you add other items to the string, then the skin will remove the ARTIST and
    ALBUM if you have included them in a specific format. The contents of yoru
    format are in bold, which is why you only see TITLE in bold by default. This
    is a feature of the skins in question is is completely changeable in a custom
    skin.
