String-manipulations

Hi,

On FreeDb, some users use the notation "Singers, The" instead of "The Singers". This is applicable also to the CD-title and/or the Song-title.

Is there a way with mp3tag to convert (with stringmanipulations) these fields back into a "The Singers".
This should conditional, as in case of Various-cd's not all groups or titles are concerned.
I saw a topic todo the opposite

Thanks

Walter

Isn't this what you are looking for: Actions

Anyways, you will have to manually select the files which you want "The" to be inserted.

Hi!

You can do this with regular expressions, when artist is in format "some artist, the", so "artist1, the feat. artist2" etc. will not be changed:

Action:
replace regular expression
field: ARTIST
expression: (.*)(, )(the$)
replace with: $caps($3) $1

Look at scripting functions in help if you want to format the capitalization in some other way.
