Ok , i worked out how to do this , following the same logic to a question i asked a long time ago (i'd lost the original action i created , when i installed a newer version of MP3TAG) , anyway -
create a NEW action in the action group
Action type Format value
Format string: %album%
i then highlight all the files in that folder , and apply the above action
This does exactly what i wanted to achieve in my first question
So ! , now i have a similar problem that appears to be a lot more complicated !
Here's the example
i have a 'parent folder' which is named The Cure , if i click on that folder , there are two sub-folders named CD1 and CD2 each with 15 mp3 files .
All the mp3 files in both of these subfolders have the album tag Cure (The): Greatest Hits
if i apply the above action to all the files in subfolders CD1 and CD2 , the parent folder name remains un affected - but ! - it moves all of the 30 files into one new subfolder , and this is named Cure (The): Greatest Hits .
The sub folders CD1 and CD2 do not exist anymore
how can i get it to rename the parent folder <b>Cure (The): Greatest Hits</b> ?
I'd be happy for the subfolders to either be renamed Cure (The): Greatest Hits 1 and Cure (The): Greatest Hits 2 , or preferably , to get rid of the sub folders all together and put all 30 mp3 files in the parent folder.
Is this possible ?
