I Googled this, I follow the syntax just enough to almost understand, but I’m having an issue. This is the syntax I’m trying
$if2(%albumartist%,%artist%)/$if($ne(%albumartist%,),%album% - [$left(%date%,4)]/,)$if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%discnumber%-,)$if($ne(%albumartist%,),$num(%tracknumber%,2) ,)$if(%_multiartist%,%artist% - ,)%title%
It’s the default with the [$left(%date%,4)] added. In the example at the bottom it’s showing how I want is. Which is /artist/album [year]/track number - track name.mp3. Now in the syntax I’m seeing %albumartist% right after the directory / so I’m assuming that’s what needs to be removed. BUT, here’s where my confusion works. When I use the default naming, it comes out /track number - track name.mp3. When all I do is add [$left(%date%,4)] it’s populating the directory with the artist name.
I’m guessing even though the example under the syntax box looks right. I messed up the syntax somewhere, but I can’t figure it out. Since I use KODI for my music and never actually look at my directories any more. I just thought I’d leave it as it with no year in the folder name. But just so I can maybe start to understand the syntax a bit better I was hoping someone could show me what I did wrong.
