Filter by Genre "Drum and Bass" doesnt work.

Post by RichG »

When I select genre "Drum and Bass" I don't get any albums returned, but I do in the hierarchy view.

I'm guessing this is to do with the filter word logic around "and". Is there a way to work around this?

Edit:

Just noticed that when clicking on the genre in the filter list, Genre:DrumandBass' gets entered and not the expected Genre:Drum and Bass

If I add the space and inverted commas to make it Genre:"Drum and Bass" it works.

Are you selecting the genre from the presets or typing it in? There's no special processing for the word "and".

Just noticed that other genres with spaces, such as 'Alt Country' behave the same. ie selecting from the list populates the field without the space{s).

Yes that's because I can't process and/or directives unless these are made into single "tokens" as the filter text parser sees them - but only with the Genre: presets. Will look into this.

Thanks for the quick fix - that appears to be working fine now.

However - I've just become aware that the filter list for genres is not complete, it seems to miss any genres that only have a single album. Not sure if this is a regression or was happening previously.

That's deliberate yes, it only puts in the preset list any with 5 albums or more, this prevents the presets from becoming too unwieldy. You can still search (by free text entry) any genres with fewer albums.
