Few suggestions for the next version

Postby kapz » Sat Sep 15, 2007 5:17 am

Hello,

I use Subsonic all the time and just thought of a few small things to improve it. On the “Load Playlist” screen it far too easy to delete a playlist with out any confirmation. The “Load” and “Delete” link are too close. I personally don’t like message boxes on my WebPages so I thought you could put "load" on the left side of the playlist and keep the "delete" on the right. This make it a little harder to click the wrong link (I haven't done this, yet).


Have you given any thought to my suggestion about a checkbox to hide the "All Folders" category dropdown? I would fill the left bar with the first added music folder items initially.

Hi kapz,

In 3.2.beta1 there is at least a confirmation dialog when deleting playlists.

Yes, I've thought about your checkbox suggestion, but I think it's too specific to be of general interest. If it still is a problem, you can work around it by deleting this line from left.jsp:

Code: Select all
<option value="-1"><fmt:message key="left.allfolders"/></option>


Hope this helps :-)

After looking at the code I figured to remove that line, but the first time the list loads after logging in is like “All Folders”. After poking around I could not find the music folder scanning methods and gave up.

Maybe you might have a better idea about cutting down the number of folders in the left panel. I have put a few of my largest music collections in subfolders to reduce the number of artists listed, but that is a short term solution.

Hm, I guess you also have to change this line in index.jsp:

Code: Select all
<frame name="left" src="left.view?" marginwidth="10" marginheight="10">


to

Code: Select all
<frame name="left" src="left.view?musicFolderId=1" marginwidth="10" marginheight="10">


If musicFolderId=1 doesn't work, try with 2, 3, 4 etc.

sindre,

Changing index.jsp worked after trying a few ID's. Thanks this will work for me.
