Path substitution missing in Webgui?

Hi,

 

i've just noticed, that all my *.nfo files contain the local (windows c:\...) path's for the actor images. I had a mapping from the local path to the unc path, which worked fine for month if not years, but now i cant find the entire "Path substituion" menu anywhere in the Webgui. I do still have the "Enable path substitution" checkbutton under Library -> Nfo Settings.

 

Was this removed when a custom unc-path (Shared network folder under a Folder-Path in the library) was added?

 

The only Forum-Article about this i could fin is https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/35508-path-substitution-setting-is-missing/&do=findComment&comment=334997 which basically just points to the Library-Setup-Wiki, which is not correct anymore...

 

How can metadata still be substituted? Im i supposed to add this into Library -> Advanced -> "Metadata path"? There i seem to be unable to add a unc-path (after "Save" the circle icon appears and stays forever)...

network paths are at the library level now.

This was changed a few versions back.  Go into your library setup and, for each folder, there is a field to enter a network path equivalent.

Yeah, i get how it works for *library* items, but how is it supposed to work for the metadata (like actor-thumbs)? Am i supposed to add this into Library -> Advanced -> "Metadata path"? There i can select a unc-path, but after clicking "Save", the circle icon appears and stays forever...

 

//EDIT: Ahhhhh, ok, i'm supposed to add the local path as metadata-path and the unc-path as (Optional) Shared network folder.... in the library i'm using *just* the unc-path (no local path)....

 

Thanks guys for the hints :-)

 

(can i mark this as solved myself somehow?)
