    Default credits (2 pheisholt)

    I tried new crisp theme for v.6. The thing i liked is:
    In default theme it goes:

    CREDITS
    Producer: John
    Producer: George
    Producer: Paul
    Producer: Ringo

    In crisp theme it looks like:
    Producer: John, George, Paul, Ringo

    which i like better. But is is possible to make it this way:

    Producer:
    John ( Track 1 )
    George ( Tracks 2-5 )
    Paul ( Track 7-8 )
    Ringo ( Track 9 )

    ???

    I don't see any way to do what you want with the <dax> tags currently available. It could be done with a pair of Javascript functions, but they might be slow, especially on older computers.

    I'll make this change for the next update. It's simple change, no need to code this in javascript (which would be pretty hard anyway).

    Pheisholt seems to be a bit slow. I asked him because I see he's deep into templates, and I just didn't want to distract Andrei from his main job.

    Another question:

    How to make 2 columns for recently added/played/reviewed albums on start page? I tried to think of something but the only thing I got was a table with two identical columns...

    Hi
    I'm afraid I have nothing further to add. As Balok and Andrei have pointed out this would require javascripting, and may end up a mess.

    Creating two columns also requires a javascript, which has to loop through the entries and start a new column when it hits the 5th of 10 entries (if thats the number of entries you hav set OCD to display)

    It can be done. I've done something similar previously. Look in the forum for postings on 'LP mode'. That should give you an idea of what you need to do.

    It's really more or less the same. You create columns using regular HTML-elements (TABLE, TR and TD). The tricky part is to fill them with data in a correct way.

    As you pointed out yourself, what you got was two identical columns, simply because the [fixed]dax[/fixed]-tags can't be used to determine when or how to
