I just knocked up an import script to organise my movies into containers "ABC", "DEF", "GHI", etc and it works quite nicely when rendering on the PS3. However I'd like to keep track of the number of movies I have inside each of the containers e.g. "ABC (20)", "DEF (3)", etc.
What do you experts think? What's the best way to tackle this?
BTW as soon as I get my login for the Wiki I'll put my script online. It seems to be taking forever to get the password e-mail...
currently there is no way to do this via our js feature, it would also require some changes in the way how containers are created, because you would have to update existing containers to change the number in the title. Apart from that we would indeed have to add a function that would allow querying the number of items in a container, this would probably slow down the import process even more.
Sorry, but I do not think that we will be adding this.
Did the wiki registration work out?
Thanks for the reply. It's a shame you don't think that the counter is a good idea.
It doesn't look like the wiki registration is working. I never got the confirmation e-mail with my password.
Could you please try again, and if it does not work drop me an email?
I see it is working for other users, maybe it was just some temporary failure.
Sorry about the counter :>
Would you mind if I had a look in the source code to see if I could get the counters working as an option for users who may want to use them? I'll probably have to ask a few questions about the structure of the code tho.
To be honest - I think this is not easy to do, especially if you want the patch to get accepted. We generally do not like too intrusive patches and usually accept only smaller, standalone features that do not touch the main server components; main reason for that is that we want to keep our copyright ownership throughout the server code.
Nevertheless, I could of course give you some pointers if you want to play around with the code, be it for a patch or just for your own needs.
