I've searched around and can't find an answer to my issue, so I figured I'd bug you guys. I've only learned how to use this program with just the basics, like pushing the artist to albumartist and some basic IF statements. Right now I have the issue that I'm trying to have one ridiculous format string to rename all my songs via tags. Usually this isn't an issue, but I've run into a problem.
This is my format string:
E:\Media\Music$if(%albumartist%,%albumartist%,%artist%)$if(%album%,(%year%) %album%,Misc Tracks)$if(%album%,$if(%discnumber%,$num(%discnumber%,1)-,)%track% - ,)%artist% - $if(%title%,%title%,'[untitled]')
As you can see, a lot of IFs. If there's an album artist, use it; otherwise use the artist. If there's an album, use it or put Misc Tracks (if you have a better idea for this folder name, let me know), if there's a disc number, append it to the track number, and if there's no title, call it untitled.
This doesn't seem to work on any tracks that have a slash in the album name, however. Everything else seems mostly fine. In the case of tracks with a backslash in the album name (in this case, Indie/Rock), it freaks out. This example, for instance, should have stayed exactly the same as it was already how I wanted it:
"E:\Media\Music\Various Artists(2013) IndieRock Playlist April (2013)\001 - Tessa Rose Jackson - (All The) King's Horses.mp3" ->
"E:\Media\Music\Various Artists(2013) IndieRock Playlist April (2013)\E\Media\Music\Various Artists(2013) IndieRock Playlist April (2013)\001 - Tessa Rose Jackson - (All The) King's Horses.mp3"
As you can see, it appends "E\Media\Music" to its current directory rather than what was intended.
So what exactly can I do about this? I'd like one end-all-be-all format string for my MP3s, and I felt like this was it. I'd appreciate any help or pointers.
