I would like to request the ability to add custom categories Alongside TV,Movies,&Music in the home screen.

 

Example. I have a few different folders for different content.

 

Movies

TV

Anime

Sports

Vides.

 

Currently EMBY shows only, TV,Movies,Music & Channels.

I would like to be able to add Anime, Sports & Videos to the home page among others.

You can add these by setting your User Preferences in the Web Client. Click on your User Icon in the top right corner and select My Preferences. Any library that you don't want included in the default views, uncheck in the My Views section of the Display Tab. You can rearrange their order on the Display Tab a little further down. Most of the clients will inherit these preferences.

 

This is mine:

Thanks. Just so that we can learn something, did you ignore the tour? Or did you go through it and not understand it? Because at the end it does give you a chance to configure this

I ignored it because I was doing and update to from MediaBrowser to Emby on my freenas box and the typical male ego of who needs instructions took over for a bit, and I must have looked at the dashboard for more than and hour trying to figure out where this was, when it was under user name->preferences, as I just figured that out by taking the really nice tour and reading the helpful post!

Is there a way to set these preference and have them be the default view on my server for any user I add via emby.media?

at the moment no, it's a good idea. but in the meantime as an admin you can edit any user's preferences by editing their user record in the server dashboard. it will have a link you can click to open their preferences

Maybe have that in the admin console, since it would be a global setting.

 

Also, now I have added Anime as a seperate category on my home screen, but it doesn't show the collage of show posters like TV & Movies do. How do I get it to do that?
