Configure random album list refresh

Postby demodulated » Thu Jul 23, 2020 1:14 pm

The default page shown when a user logs in is an automatically-refreshing list of random albums. In my opinion this has two problems:
  1. The delay between refreshes may be too frequent or infrequent for the user to choose an album
  2. Leaving this page open prevents the server's hard drive from going to sleep
I request that the refresh rate be configurable in the following ways:
  • Let the administrator configure a default refresh rate for all users, including forbidding automatic refresh of random albums
  • Let the user configure a default refresh rate for their own random album list, omitting any administrator restrictions
  • In addition to the above, make the default album list page something other than random to avoid unnecessary load on the server hard drive
Does anyone else have any thoughts on this proposal?

For Random, it is only showing random album as long the browser is open, leaving the page it is stopping.

using settings -> Personal you can choose a couple of start pages, my start page is showing 40 new albums by default, with next button, without refreh. For smaller collections it might be usefull to choose all, where 40 Albums are shown with a next button. To go back, you have to use the browser back .... having more than 20,000 Albums it is not very useful ;-)
