Showing results for tags 'sub category'.
Hi all, so, here's an idea, I'd like to have all my TV in a TV category.. Funnily enough, that all works perfectly.. However, i'd like to be able to go "into" my TV library and see all my TV shows, as i do now.. but, for example.. I'd quite like when I go into a Star Trek item, for it to open up a sub-category, with the same kind of home-screen that TV gets.. I can get the category/library for Star Trek, obviously, by creating a new library.. but.. then I'll end up with a top level menu/navigation of: Kids Movies, Kids TV, Movies, TV, Star Trek.. And the reason - probably obvious - for this is that there are multiple star trek series', like TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise, original... Plus there's: - Stargate, - Breaking Bad, - Life on mars, - probably a MILLION others So, my thinking is, you open up TV, and you get all the shows.. except, for the sub libraries, you get 1 item, perhaps with an indicator to show it's a sub library ... You enter that, and it gives you the same kind of home screen (based on type) as per the parent library, e.g. with a random item, favorites, next up, resume etc.. As a file structure, it could look like: \TV\Normal Series 1\Season NN \TV\Normal Series 2\Season NN ... \TV\Breaking Bad[subLibrary]\Breaking Bad\Season NN \TV\Breaking Bad[subLibrary]\Better Call Saul\Season NN \TV\Life on Mars[subLibrary]\Life on Mars\Season NN \TV\Life on Mars[subLibrary]\Ashes to Ashes\Season NN \TV\Stargate[subLibrary]\Stargate - SG1\Season NN \TV\Stargate[subLibrary]\Stargate - Atlantis\Season NN \TV\Star Trek[subLibrary]\Star Trek\Season NN \TV\Star Trek[subLibrary]\Star Trek - Deep Space 9\Season NN \TV\Star Trek[subLibrary]\Star Trek - The Next Generation\Season NN \TV\Star Trek[subLibrary]\Star Trek - Voyager\Season NN I know you can have a similar structure supported in terms of the file system, dropping the tag and marking Breaking Bad/Star Trek etc as TV.. but then in the TV library, all seasons show up as their own item, not collapsed into a single parent item... I also assume that the tag in the folder name is probably considered a legacy mechanism.. it would be neater to have an option in the metadata manager to "create sub library" or something.. and then add items to it... similar to, though not identical to, collections.. a bit close to how collections used to behave ... bit again, still different..
