    Dynamic folder path - Can I remove "The " from artist name?

    Dynamic folder path - Can I remove "The " from artist name?

    I'm trying to set my folder path up like this -

    [artist]/[album]/[track number] [track name]

    I would like to remove "the" from the artist name when setting up the path.

    Any help would be appreciated

    You want it removing from the tag also?

    For what it's worth, I'd like to do the same thing.

    Thanks,

    Does it work for anyone else?

    I have tried to insert this in my current folder naming structure and just can't get it to work without ending up with folder name something like "Wreckers The Wreckers"
    I only want to remove "The" from the folder name, NOT from the file name or tags.

    My current folder naming structure is:
    [IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[IFCOMP]Various Artists[][IF!COMP][artist][][]\[album]\[artist] [album] [track] [title]

    Can you please tell how/where to add the remove command in that structure? I am new at this stuff, so it would be great if you could insert the new command and paste the whole structure that I can just copy/paste into the ripper. Thanks!

    It is actually a bug, as [IF!EQUALS]1,1,[artist][] always shows artist, when it should not...I will look at this for R14.4

    Has this been fixed? I am trying to set this up into my current folder naming structure and not having much luck.
