change default view to "newest"

Postby 3R3 » Sat Mar 12, 2011 8:42 pm

Inspiration by various posters in a feature request here: Set default view to NEWEST instead of random

to have the suggested mod (newest view instead of random view in main tab) not only show up when manually navigating to home.view or when first logging in, but also when staying there refreshing as often as the randow view to keep the newest view almost updated in real-time, follow below instructions acurately!


Backup, stop server, edit files, restart server, clear browser cache, login!

[OPTIONAL]
(to make "newest" appear leftmost in the main tab)
In home.jsp in subsonic/jetty/xxxx/webapp/WEB-INF/jsp find:
Code: Select all
<c:forTokens items="random newest highest frequent recent users" delims=" " var="cat" varStatus="loopStatus">

replace with:
Code: Select all
<c:forTokens items="newest highest frequent recent random users" delims=" " var="cat" varStatus="loopStatus">

save!


[NEEDED]
in index.jsp find:
Code: Select all
<frame name="main" src="nowPlaying.view?" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

replace with:
Code: Select all
<frame name="main" src="home.view?listSize=10&listType=newest" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

save!


in top.jsp find:
Code: Select all
<td class="logo" style="padding-right:2em"><a href="home.view?" target="main"><img src="<spring:theme code="logoImage"/>" title="${help}" alt=""></a></td>
    <c:if test="${not model.musicFoldersExist}">
        <td style="padding-right:2em">
            <p class="warning"><fmt:message key="top.missing"/></p>
        </td>
    </c:if>
    <td>
        <table><tr align="center">
            <td style="min-width:4em;padding-right:1.5em">
                <a href="home.view?" target="main"><img src="<spring:theme code="homeImage"/>" title="${home}" alt="${home}"></a><br>
                <a href="home.view?" target="main">${home}</a>

replace with:
Code: Select all
<td class="logo" style="padding-right:2em"><a href="home.view?listSize=10&listType=newest" target="main"><img src="<spring:theme code="logoImage"/>" title="${help}" alt=""></a></td>
    <c:if test="${not model.musicFoldersExist}">
        <td style="padding-right:2em">
            <p class="warning"><fmt:message key="top.missing"/></p>
        </td>
    </c:if>
    <td>
        <table><tr align="center">
            <td style="min-width:4em;padding-right:1.5em">
                <a href="home.view?listSize=10&listType=newest" target="main"><img src="<spring:theme code="homeImage"/>" title="${home}" alt="${home}"></a><br>
                <a href="home.view?listSize=10&listType=newest" target="main">${home}</a>

save!

DONE!
enjoy!

EDIT: works now! :-)

That IS weird, as this file defines the main frameset and only contains some 27 lines. Have you tried looking by hand/eye? In my case its line 16, you should really be able to find it.

nope I'm sorry. I was stupid and forgot I had edited the "nowPlaying.view" to "main.view". Use that line and it should work just fine. The line with "name="main" src="nowPlaying.view" it is.

Does this tweak :

1) Differentiate NEW from MODIFIED? If I select New I do not want to see modified entries come up!
2) work on version 3.7?

Thx!

If you modify files inside folders nothing will be registered, but if you change folder it will be shown as new in your library. About version 3.7 i think it will work fine just back up before u change anything.

:P I think we both need new glasses 8)
Yes you are right but I just checked my top.jsp file (4.6beta2) and the code is there.

Code: Select all
<td class="logo" style="padding-right:2em"><a href="help.view?" target="main"><img src="<spring:theme code="logoImage"/>" title="${help}" alt=""></a></td>

    <c:if test="${not model.musicFoldersExist}">
        <td style="padding-right:2em">
            <p class="warning"><fmt:message key="top.missing"/></p>
        </td>
    </c:if>

    <td>
        <table><tr align="center">
            <td style="min-width:4em;padding-right:1.5em">
                <a href="home.view?" target="main"><img src="<spring:theme code="homeImage"/>" title="${home}" alt="${home}"></a><br>
                <a href="home.view?" target="main">${home}</a>
            </td>
            <td style="min-width:4em;padding-right:1.5em">
                <a href="nowPlaying.view?" target="main"><img src="<spring:theme code="nowPlayingImage"/>" title="${nowPlaying}" alt="${nowPlaying}"></a><br>
                <a href="nowPlaying.view?" target="main">${nowPlaying}</a>
            </td>
