Hi, I am new to Album Player and very happy with first impressions. I have a query and hope it is possible. I have 100's of Albums that I will be adding to album player and don't want 100's on the main screen. Is is possible to create folders within AlbumPlayer ? I have lots of Now Albums so would like to create a folder that can be seen on the Front screen and when you click on it you can see all the existing Now albums only. Or a Group called say 60's, 70's, 80's etc and put all related music into them so easy to choose when looking for compilations. Hope this makes sense and is possible.

Regards,
daven

Daven,

As far as I know it isn't possible to do what you want by the use of folders.

I'm pretty sure though the many flexible views options from within AP can get you there. For example selecting a view of Artists, Various artists should achieve what you want in terms of Now albums. I would guess that you can achieve this just using the views options. If you need even greater granularity then you can also tag your music in such a way as to achieve exactly what you want, with or without Custom views of your own specification.

Hope this helps.

Glenn

The beauty of Album Player is its flexibility in organising your music.
What you want to do is easily achieved using the available Collection Categories in AP.
You could create a new genre called "Now" and put all your Now albums in it.
Or: there is already a compilation category available under the album type option.
Arranging albums by decade is possible using the Period option.
All these options can be editted to suit your needs, you can even add your own images for the Genres, Album Types etc.

Just experiment.

Ian
