If you used the previous plug-in and don't delete the settings, you'll need to change the Basic title formatting setting back to the new default by deleting whats there in the settings, or copying
[%artist% - ]$if2(%title%,$filepart(%filename%)) into it.
Other than that, I've been sat on this for a while now - just having no time to work on it really. I've been using the Debug version for some time and I hope it will have mostly no problems.
first off, thanx a lot for maintaining the plugin ...
Now, I seem to struggle with your new title formatting.
My purpose is to check whether a given tag field is present and print it with additional characters for enhanced formatting and better readability.
With your previous release, I used this syntax:
%?1<%1 - >%?0<%0. >%?2<%2|%8>%?3< - %3>%?4< - %4>
resulting in playlist entries like this:
01. Deep Purple - 01/10. Money Talks - Rapture Of The Deep - 2005[/i]
02. Yello - 11/14. Unreal - The Eye - 2003[/li]
where the first numbers are representing their playlist position
trying to translate it into the new syntax, I ended up with using $if(A,B,C):
$if(%artist%,%artist% - ,)$if(%track%,%track%. ,)$if2(%title%,$filepart(%filename%))$if(%album%, - %album%,)$if(%year%, - %year%,)
for easier trouble shooting, we could just focus on the first entry:
$if(%artist%,%artist% - ,)
I expect this to check for a valid artist tag and only if one is found, it prints the artist tag, followed by " - ".
If no tag is found, it shouldn't print anything at all, but unfortunately I get something like this:
01. Deep PurpleDeep Purple - 01/1001/10. Money TalksRapture Of The Deep - Rapture Of The Deep2005 - 2005[/i]
02. YelloYello - 11/1411/14. UnrealThe Eye - The Eye2003 - 2003[/li]
so effectively all queried and existing tags get printed twice
Would you be so kind and give me a pointer how to solve this or what I'm misunderstanding ?
