renaming folders


#1

Hello!

Please can anybody explain me how to do this:

Rename folder with some particular album mp3s to "year - album" (or whatever) format. Is there any easy way?

Thank you.

well. i found it's possible to rename folder by making a new action that replaces _DIRECTORY with explicitely stated folder name (eg The lost sounds of mu) to explicitely stated new name. but even if i put "%year% %album%" (without quotes) to "replace with" it gets renamed to exactly "%year% %album%".
So, probably I need to things:

  1. How to find in "original" everything after last slash
  2. To replace it by actual year and album title, not to %year% %album%".

Sorry for maybe lame questions, I have just installed mp3tag, spent about an hour in this forum and help, and could not find anything.

The action type must be Format value to use placeholders.
