  1. New Theme: Linking External Files to Albums by Using Custom Fields

    As you may know, the OrangeCD database supports a number of “custom fields” that the user can configure. I have created a theme that uses data stored in custom fields to accomplish the following:

  2. Two Suggestions

    First permit me to ramble a little, and then I will suggest two workarounds.

    As I understand your question, you want to have the content tree (the left panel in OCD) show folders for different...

    A few more thoughts

    I agree that the IF condition can only test whether a field is empty or not. I tried to pull the content from the OrangeCD tag into a variable but was not successful. My plan was to then use a...

    Found a Way to Link to PDFs and Other File Types

    I have figured out a way to link to PDF files (and other types of files) in OrangeCD. To make it happen, insert the attached code into your theme file, probably "Default V6.dax" located in...

    Linking PDFs to Albums via Theme?

    I am finally getting around to scanning my CD booklets. My entire collection is classical, and as you may know, classical CDs often have quite extensive booklets.

    Initially I OCRd the booklets...

    Wow, after a year, I figure why not respond. I'm sure you have checked every day for a reply.

    As far as I can remember (and I did not go back to look at earlier posts), this feature was requested...

    Thanks very much for your response, Andrei.

    I love the level of support, as well as the honesty. I can think of a dozen software companies that would have said "It is a design choice" before...
  9. Not working for me...

    I followed the steps you suggested, but "various artists" still does not show up in cloud view, even if "1000" is selected. I have a total of 183 artists and a pro membership.

    I noticed that there is no entry for "Various Artists" when artists are displayed in cloud view. "Various Artists" does show up if artists are viewed as a list.

    Is this a bug or was there some...

    1. Select the album you want to submit.

    2. Select "Album &#124; Submit CD info."

    3. Follow any prompts.
  14. Crash on bulk edit if different Date Added

    I am running the latest version (6.1.7 Build 11609). Here's how the bug manifests itself:

    1. Select two albums that have different "Date Added" values.

    2. Open "Properties" dialog box.

    Improved Statistics

    It seems that the only part of OrangeCD that remains unchanged from version 5 is the statistics feature. It would be great if that could be brought up to speed.

    It might be a good first step to...

    The main thing I miss about the old theme is the way the album page was laid out, with the cover picture and selected fields at the top, followed by the tracks. The new theme has the tracks bunched...
