Going out on a guess here but did you try $char()? For " it's $char(34). So perhaps Richard "$char(34)"Groove"$char(34)" Holmes.
Enclose the query in single quotes? Try 'Richard "Groove" Holmes'and see what you get?
"$if($strstr(%artist%,$char(34)),1,0)" IS 1
This works:Code: [Select]"$if($strstr(%artist%,$char(34)),1,0)" IS 1
Double quotation marks are a special character in foobar2000 query syntax, so how can I compare a metadata field with a string that includes literal double quotes? For example what should the query expression be in order to return all library items where the artist is Richard "Groove" Holmes?
You do know that you can just enter:Richard Groove HolmesAnd it will return Richard "Groove" Holmes. If you leave out the ", it will just match the words, which works just fine for me. It doesn't need the exact string.
