artist art location
hi

i've developed a small plugin for myself that downloads artist and album art for selected tracks
the plugin itself works ok, but i can't get foobar to show artist arts from parent folder

i've tried adding "../artist.jpg" to patterns, but it doesn't work

is it possible to do?
cause i don't like the idea to store artist art in every album folder

Try something like the following but adapted to your path and assuming the jpg is saved as the artist name.

C:\artists\%artist%.jpg

I don’t know whether fb2k supports relative path-names in this context, but note that Windows separates folders by backward slashes, not forward.
