Different alphabetical index rules for each share

Postby Cook66 » Wed Sep 12, 2012 10:16 am

I'd like to see a way to have seperate alphabetical indexing rules for each share.
My music share needs to be seperated alphabetically, but my video files are already seperated into folders for different letters. The result of this is that I have share for videos which look like this:
  • A
    A-C Videos
  • D
    D-H Videos
  • I
    I-O Videos


It's not helpful since using the letters above only reflect the first letter of the folders and it adds a lot of useless space between each folder.

If we could set each share with it's own abc index I could just make a "Videos(A-Z)" and the problem would be solved.

Edit: So I kinda solved this problem on my own and if anyone else want to know how feel free to ask.

What I did was this: I created a vbs script which creates a symbolic link (a fake windows folder, essentially a shortcut which windows makes look like a folder) for each folder in my video folders.

It looks through each folder for the containing folders and creates a symbolic link in a seperate place. this essentially makes a seperate folder with links to all the subfolders in the my video collection. I then add this folder to subsonic which indexes it as if all the videos were in one place, making the regular alpahabetical indexing method useful again.
