    How to make a plain text Browse Tree item jump directly to [All Albums]

    Hi
    I am struggling with a plain text Browse Tree item.

    I want to display all albums with genre Children in one Browse tree item. I managed to come this far:
    ChildrenAlbums**Genre&+&Children&+&Album

    This plain text Browse Tree item gives the following selection:
    - [All Albums]
    - [A]
    - ...
    - [Z]


    Now I want do ommit this additional step and automatically descend to [All Albums].

    I tried the following extension, but it just brings me to the same selection as above:
    ChildrenAlbums**Genre&+&Children&+&Album&+&[All Albums]

    I studied the description on the Advanced Asset UPnP Configuration page https://www.dbpoweramp.com/Help/AssetUPnP/advanced.html ,
    but so far, I only found the following commands for plain text Browse Tree items:
    [TOROOT]
    {_a_to_z_}
    {_no_track_list_}


    None of them achieves what I need.

    Any suggestions on how to achieve my goal?

    Also, is there a page with a descripton of all available Browse Tree plain text commands and more examples?
    I think, it would be very helpful.

    Thanks and best regards

    On the options at the bottom of the tree when you add this item, ensure a_z is unchecked if adding through the GUI.

    I am not using the GUI, but the plain text tree editor instead.
    I want to directly descend to the list of all Albums of genre "Children".
    I followed the description on this page: https://www.dbpoweramp.com/Help/AssetUPnP/advanced.html

    It is possible to create a tree item which descends into the tree automatically, for example:
    1980s Pop**Dynamic Browsing&+&Genre&+&Pop&+&Year&+& 1980s
    However I can only automatically descend this far:
    ChildrenAlbums**Genre&+&Children&+&Album

    The next level "[All Ablums]" is ignored:
    ChildrenAlbums**Genre&+&Children&+&Album&+&[All Albums]

    You need to edit the tree part where it says:

    Genre\Album

    and remove a to z there.

    Don't mean to hijack post. Trying to create new post with regards to QNAP NAS and asset premium. I keep google searching but can't find how to post a new thread. Can somebody help? I've done it before--I must be having a brain glitch. I am signed in. thanks, Tobe

    Thank you Spoon, indeed changing line 4

    Code:
    ChildrenAlbums**Genre&+&Children&+&Album
    Artist{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}
    Artist\Album
    Album{_a_to_z_}
    to

    Code:
    ChildrenAlbums**Genre&+&Children&+&Album
    Artist{_a_to_z_}{_no_track_list_}
    Artist\Album
    Album
    brings the desired effect of directly descending into All Albums for my custom entry in line 1.

    Now, why my custom tree item depends on another line item of the standard tree is difficult to understand for me.
    For me it would be more intuitive, if the custom tree item was independet and omitting {_a_to_z_} in the definition of the same line would behave like chaging line 4.
