    Add Date to Title Display

    Hi
    I'm trying to add the date of release of a track, (as held in the Date tag of my MP3 files), so that it shows after the title in Asset's listings.

    Is this possible please?

    Thanks.

    I see you're trying both servers :-)

    You'll need to use the User Rename List feature:
    Code:
    preformat:=title:=[title] ([year])
    Remove the parentheses if you don't want them.

        Nothing doing I'm afraid.
        I copied the code as you gave me to the AssetUpnPUserRenameList, after the instruction section, refreshed all, restarted server, but no change to the format in either BubbleUpnP or HiFiCast.

        Any ideas?

        Thanks again.

          I know there was a bug/feature where the tag you're using in the preformat had to be typed (TEXT/INTEGER e.t.c.) in MediaDatabaseFieldsv7a.txt, but I think title and year already are by default, so I don't think it'll be that.

          Are you on an up-to-date version of AssetUPnP, as this functionality was only introduced about a year ago.

          I do remember having to restart/refresh a number of times for these to take effect.

            I was just on the point of answering myself! My tags, written with FooBar, call the 'Year' Tag 'Date'. So I substituted the word in the code you gave me, and it worked!

            Thanks again

              Really? I use FLAC, and the tag that holds the release date is called DATE but it's abstracted in AssetUPnP to YEAR (to consolidate all the file formats which use different names).

              If I use DATE it doesn't work, even once I've added it to MediaDatabaseFieldsv7a.txt!

              At least it's working for you :-)
