Ignore directories?

Postby Coupey » Tue Jun 06, 2006 9:12 am

Hi,

I think it would be really useful if it was possible to ignore certain folders in my media library.

This could be done simply by putting, say, a 'subsonic_ignore.txt' file in the relevant directories.

It could even be slightly more sophisticated, for instance if you could set variables within the text file to (for instance) let Subsonic know to include the contents of the folder but not allow the contents to be part of a randomly-generated playlist. That way I won't have to weed out things like chapters from audiobooks when I generate a random playlist.

Cheers,

Coupey.

I have to agree with this. Mine is currently showing my lost+found directory under unix.

Hi,
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll implement this in Subsonic 2.8.

It's out now in 2.8.beta1. Note that the file should be named subsonic_exclude.txt".

Can you post an example/directions of how to exclude a directory? I can't seem to get it to work. Do you have to have a "subsonic_exclude.txt" file with the name of the directory that I want to exclude within in or is it just a blank .txt file named "subsonic_exclude.txt"?

Sure. Let's say you have a directory c:\music\foo\bar which you like to exclude. Then, in the 'foo' directory, create a subsonic_exclude.txt file with the content "bar".

The exclude file may contain multiple lines of text, one for each (immediate) subdirectory or file you want to hide in a given directory.

Hope this helps,
Sindre

Just wondering, was this broken in 3.8? Neither a rescan of the search index, nor a restart of the subsonic service seem to recognize newly added folders/lines to subsonic_exclude.txt.

Not working here either. Unfortunately I added the media folder before placing the excludes file inside, and now I can't get the "Automatically Add to iTunes" folder removed from my Subsonic list.
