Unset libraries / Complex folder issue

Figured I would open a separate topic on this issue.

 

If a Unset library only contains one media type Content type is unavailable.

 

Here is a library set Unset with mixed content - Appear correct with content type options for TV and Movies

A Unset library with only TV - no content type options

A Unset library with only movies - no content type options

And a library content type TV - no content type options for complex folder structure

Hope this demonstrated the issue better.

 

All testing was done in Version 3.1.6130.18236 dev

@@Luke  Is this going to be added back or will this have to be done manually as I posted in other topics?

This is still an issue example from TV library, only workaround in manually adding to system.xml. 3.2.0.100

Appreciate there are probably a million things going on at once but is there any ETA on when this might get fixed/put back, I am obviously not the only one hanging on it. Please.... Pretty please.  :D

There are manual ways to do this if you need assistance.

I saw you can edit the system.xml? Any chance you can post a real quick explainer before I break my system? Also any chance someone could update the wiki? It currently says this option is available, I spent quite a bit of time searching in here and trying to work out what I was doing wrong. Thanks for your fast response BTW.

I'm on current stable.3.2.7.0

@@Luke  is still determining the best way to handle this.

 

This post should help.  A library scan is required after making these changes.

Hi Guys, has this progressed any further yet?

I have just tried to create a couple of different sub folders under TV\N-Z\Star Trek Discovery to be \TV\N-Z\Star Trek\Star Trek Discovery

 

The metadata shows it as Star Trek Discovery as the folder when viewing via Folder type, however it's picking up all the Star Trek the original series details for episodes.

I know I can manually identify the folders via the Identify option, but kinda defeats the purpose of grouping show groups together.

 

Especially when the Marvel Universe is getting so large now, it be handy to store under 1 folder/

 

Regards

Hey everyone,
 
Has there been any progress on this issue yet or do we need to edit the .xml manually still?

It's a pain when you have heaps of series that you want to group in the content type (ie. the Marvel stuff) but can't because it picks it up as another series instead :(

Currently the only option is the manual edit of <ContentType> in system.xml.
