    Re: Adding custom tags

    Ok solved, I duplicated one of the jpg file in "/share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/Asset/bin/AssetImages" and renamed it ORIGINALDATE.jpg

    great, it works

    is there any way to assign an icon to the new Custom Tag instead of the folder icon it gets by default ?

    In my QNAP TS-251 I found the file "MediaDatabaseFieldsv4.txt" in /share/CACHEDEV1_DATA/.qpkg/Asset/bin/.dBpoweramp/uMediaLibrary-v2

    Is it the right file/folder to edit ?

    I found why I couldn't get it to work. There were two .dBpoweramp directories on the system. Obviously only one was in use and I was happily editing files in the other. Once I renamed the inactive directory and edited the other files, I could build a tree with the new tag.

    One final question though. How do I get a similar grouping like for Year (1950s, 1960s, 1070s, etc) with my OriginalDate tag? It contains data like yyyy mm dd, yyyy, or yyyy mm. Thanks!

    I must be missing something very obvious. I edited the file MediaDatabaseFieldsv4.txt and at the bottom of the list I added

    Code:
    originaldate,0,INTEGER
    The field gets a YYYY MM DD or YYYY MM or YYYY value.

    I then proceed to edit the AssetUPnPDefinedBrowseTreev4.txt file as follows:

    Code:
    Artist / Album{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}
    Artist / Album\Album
    Album{_a_to_z_}
    Title{_a_to_z_}
    OriginalDate{_no_track_list_}
    originaldate{_no_track_list_}
    Composer{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}
    Composer\Album
    I wasn't sure whether casing makes a difference. If it does, then OriginalDate is the tag that should be used.

    Anyway, what am I missing*? A file? A location? Thanks for the help!

    Do you mean the tree in the webbrowser? I was expecting the drop-down list there to show the new value in the list. But I'll try typing it in later this evening. Thanks!

    I found the file MediaDatabaseFieldsv4.txt. Thank you for that.

    I added my custom tag (ORIGINALDATE) to the file at the bottom as originaldate,0,INTEGER. I saved the file, checked that the entry is there through CAT and then restarted AssetUPnP. When I want to edit the browse tree, I don't see the new field. Did I miss a link somewhere? Is my capitalisation not correct? What am I missing?

    Can we have the file names and locations? I don't need a full tutorial but some pointers would be nice. For me, being able to add custom tags like in MinimServer is make or break. Running Asset on a windows box is not an option as I'd need a new machine.

    Re: Adding custom tags

    How do we do this on unix based machines like QNAPs and Raspberry Pis?
