Mixed Folder Conundrum

Hi Guys,

 

I am struggling a little with something.

 

Previously I had a catch-all folder for documentaries (movies & series). I would just have a "movie Title (year)" folder for each movie and a "series title" folder for each series in said folder. Suddenly it would not add series anymore, nor recognize episodes in my auto organize folder. This was mixed content.

 

So I tried emptying the folder, removing it from the library, re-scanning and adding all the stuff again. Once again all of the movie-type documentaries were recognised and scraped automatically, but the series were not.

 

In order to remedy this, I have created two separate folders:

 

Documovies/

Movie 1 (year)/

Movie 2 (year)/

etc..

 

TV Documentaries/

TEDTalks/

BBC Documentaries/

etc..

 

Instead of using mixed content, I now have each set to the relevant type (Movies/TV). However this is really messing with my OCD as I now have two sections in the emby web frontend containing documentaries.

 

SO, can I group these somehow and only display "Documentaries" as the "folder"?

 

Also another issue I have is that with BBC Documentaries, for instance, I only have a few interesting episodes but the display shows every single season and every single episode. That equates to thousands of episodes clogging up my front-end when I maybe only have 10 or so.

 

For my normal TV series I have set it to show me missing and unaired episodes so that  I can keep track of such, but it really isn't necessary for the documentaries. Is there any way that  I can enable/disable this at the folder level?

Hi, you can't currently toggle the unaired & missing settings per folder or per series. It's been requested before though so perhaps in the future.

 

As for Documentaries, there isn't really a way to group different content types together. If you really want to do this you're probably better off going back to the mixed folder type and then reporting whatever issues you have with that. Thanks.

Thanks @Luke. I might just try revert as suggested. Will do so on the weekend.
