CDPedia - Number of Tracks

Postby lousydrummer » Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:42 pm

Hi all,

Ten years in (!), I'm still loving CDPedia.

Question: I've got some entries where all the tracks are entered and correct in the 'Tracks' tab, but the "# of tracks" field is blank. Is there a way to get that field to automatically pull the track count?

Related question: Is there a way to create a smart collection that would list all titles that don't have any tracks in the 'Tracks' tab?

Thanks!

Thank you for the kind words.

If you make an edit to the tracks tab it will update the number of tracks. You could through and press the +/- buttons to have it refresh on each empty number of tracks. That you can list with the smart collection "# of tracks is [leave blank]". But give me a few days and I can add it to my cleanup routine that is hidden in a debug menu as it's a good idea to fill that out if blank.

You can list all the albums without tracks by creating a smart collection with "Any track name is [leave blank]" this should match all albums with no tracks and those with tracks and no name for that track (but there should be few of those, I do know some users use it as a CD separator).
