Did you not only change the release number but also the way that you installed MP3tag, so that the configuration folder has changed?
Usually, the data from genres.ini is imported also in the new version.
Thank you for the response. I searched the forum before posting and read the instructions on the link you provided but it details about how to add genre field to the tag panel. I want genre drop down field on the panel which displays the tag data after searching the online database if that can be accomplsihed.
Hello, thank you for the response. I did not change the way I installed the application. Configuration folder is intact and working properly. I think the missing user defined genre field on the review panel is hardcoded in the newer version and has nothing to do with the configuration itself.
Please refer to the screenshot in the firstpost where I highlighted where this field was in v 3.08
What you are talking about is the web sources results dialogue which has nothing to do with the tag panel.
As the web sources scripts display the data as found at the source, there is no choice, you have to take it as it is.
If you want to change the genre, then you can do that after you have applied the data from the web source with the means of MP3tag.
Thank you again for the kind support. Yeah, that's precisely what I'm talking about but I don't think it's a script issue as I've done tests with the same scripts back and forth with the newer and older version of MP3TAG. Regardless of what data the web source returned, that drop down field enabled us to quickly set the custom genre.
It was so convenient to be able to parse the custom genres with the drop down with just a click, not sure what prompted the dev to remove that feature. Where can I make a request for the dev to consider it again for the future versions ?
In the mean time, is there any other way to manipulate the genre tag ?
yeah, I noticed that but the field is edit type and not the drop down type with users defined custom genres like it use to be. It's just better to be able to select a genre from the drop down instead of having to write it over and over.
I doubt that there has ever been a function in the web sources scripts to use the genre list defined for the tag panel.
You would have to change the offered genre later, after you have written the data from the web source scripts to the files.
I would like to thank you from the core of my heart for the valuable and kind support. This is not the first time you've helped me with strings, you're such an asset to this board, I highly appreciate your contributions as I'm sure other do as well.
