Server: Why are Media Library sections grouped together?

Hi,

 

I have noticed that the various sections created under Library are grouped together, so that they all end up being either "TV" or "Movies", regardless of which Library section (and server directory) they happen to be located under as defined in the dashboard/settings. I assume I have missed something somewhere, as I have read elsewhere that this would be possible, but all the searches I have done came up empty on this.

 

For instance, I have the following sections that I would very much like to have separate:

  • TV Shows (content type: TV)
  • Movies (content type: Movies)
  • Documentaries (content type: TV)
  • Childrens Movies (content type: Movies)
  • Childrens TV (content type: TV)

However, under Media Browser, they all show up as either TV or Movies. 

 

I know I *COULD* define this under collections, but that would be extremely cumbersome and not user friendly. For instance I would not ever want Childrens Movies and Movies to mix. Having to go through all existing movies and put them in a specific movies-section, and correspondingly adding all kids movies to its section, is not very useful and highly time consuming. 

 

It is also my impression that collections are more meant to group for instance all the James Bond movies, or all the Barbie movies for instance, in collections within their respective library sections.

 

 

Is this optional as I hope / believe, and if so, could you kindly point me towards where it is?

 

I've noticed this problem across all platforms I have tested (web, android, Kodi).

 

Thanks in advance for reading and hopefully pointing me in the right direction.

You have full control over this. In the web interface, have you tried clicking the "Edit" button that is right on the front page of the media library?

I guess I'm an idiot. Thanks! Clicked Edit, then un-checked all the boxes for grouping together, and got it exactly as I wanted it.

 

Thanks!
