I really like the new discogs function in the 2.83 release, both the standard and the by-ID function.
I've added/updated a bunch of discogs entries lately as I work my way through my 3500 vinyl album collection, digitising each complete album. Mp3tag is a huge part of that.
One function that would be a huge help in the discogs by ID function, is optional stripping out any non-numeric characters.
On the top right of every discogs release page is the release code, in the format [r219536] using a web browser you can click to select and copy and then paste into the ID field in MP3tag. However, unless you manually remove [r ] discogs fails.
Since every entry is the same format, can MP3TAG just remove those characters if present? It save a few keystrokes....
Just for reference, this is available since Mp3tag v2.85
In release 2.98 this function is lost/removed?
If I try discogs by releaseid using [r2012688] I get a 404 not found. If I use 2012688 it works, as does the new function search by artist/album.
Was this a deliberate change or an oversight?
It was an oversight.
I've implemented the new multi-value search dialog and forgot to add the magic Thanks for pointing, I'll bring it back with the next development build.
Thanks. I've now tagged the MP3's of just under 2,000 albums... I try to record 4-per day, so every day this saves me 36 key strokes, I've been almost 1-year 3-months since this feature was added, which means its saved me something like 16,000 keystrokes...
But if MP3TAG didn't exist, it would have billions of keystores....
The feature is back with Mp3tag v2.98a Thanks for reporting!
Sorry to re-open this old topic, but the issue seems to have returned.
I'm using v3.03 and I get the "404" error when using the [r ] and I believe this also was happening with v3.02
