Somehow I made all my artist fields display as albums (I realized what it was doing and force closed mediamonkey to prevent it from doing further damage)

doublepost, but I figured it out. Sharing this to anyone that would like to do the same.


Album Name <- [<Artist>] <Album>

Figured out why it wouldn't install. You need to put the script in C:\Users\Andrés\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\Auto and not in program files.

seriously though that other script is stupid complicated. Completely not worth my time to learn, or most other people's. And his 200+ presets take forever to look through and usually don't have what I want. Please bring this script back from the dead.

Does the manual install not work anymore? How should we install it instead. I just did the copy to notepad save as .vbs, and move to auto folder in scripts that has worked so many times before, but it doesn't seem to anymore.

Right click mentions type 0 scripts only... not sure if this is possible.

In the script's code, replacing Menu_TbStandard with Menu Pop TrackList should somewhat do the trick (in MM4 the standard toolbar isn't visible anyway, so you won't miss anything).

This script is an autoscript (it starts automatically when MM is starting, e.g. to add a button the MM's toolbar) so the RightClickForScripts script isn't applicable here (it works only for 'type 0 ' scripts, i.e. scripts that are added by MM to the menu Tools > Scripts and need to be started manually).

Am I mistaken?
For me it works in MM4, that is, it shows up in menu Tools > Scripts > Extract Fields, and Ctrl+Alt+X works. I didn't actually test changing the tags. My guess is that the script wasn't installed properly.

Where/when do you notice that ExtractFields isn't compatible with MM4?

Well, I guess many of us have to learn how to use the Reg Ex Find and Replace. Like others, the "easier and simpler" scripts worked fine for us. Upgrading to MM4 has now placed some us back to the drawing board for simple tasks. I am certainly one them since I cannot clean up my files quickly like I was able to pre-upgrade. I suppose this is alright because I do not mind learning new things, but what a time waster. I have to search all over again how to split artist and titles in MM4 among other things. I see all the posts that say Reg Ex does the same, but I cannot find the preset yet that does what I want it to do. I will find it eventually, I suppose.

Moving from performing-a-task to understanding-the-concept in order to troubleshoot and advance my db clean up skill is the name of the game for me now. Good luck to all in my boat.

@Rednroll - Have you tried RegExp Find & Replace? viewtopic.php?f=2&t=28510

Or if the Album name is coded in the files or directories names, you can do it with Auto-Tag From Filename.
Ex.: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18198

Extract Fields script, How to undo what I did?

Post by Rednroll » Mon Sep 05, 2011 3:28 pm

Ok, I've been using the "Extract Fields" script to add the "Year" in front of all my album names and have the combined result entered into the Album Name field.

Now, there's been some instances where I would like to be able to remove the "[<year>]" information I added via running a script but I haven't been able to figure out how to do it.

So here's what I've done to all my albums with the Extract Fields script and it's worked perfectly. Now I'm looking for a way to copy those songs to another location and then be able to remove that Year information with the "[ ]" around it, that I stuck on the front of all my album names in one quick swoop, just like I was able to add it.

Any suggestions on how to achieve?

Example:
Album Field= "[1990] Facelift"

Select all songs within album, run script

Result Album Field= "Facelift"

of course I want to be able to do this on multiple songs with multiple different album names all at once, where it will essentially remove "[<Year>]" from the Album Field.

If I had a script that would erase the 1st 7 characters off the front of the Album Tag field, that would work also.

How do the album names look in your ipod? Are they listed "Year space Album title"? or does the year title not show up in the album name on your ipod and they just ordered chronologically?

Whooohooo!


Sorry...been away for awhile. Albums show up in chronological order on the iPod but with the date in front of the album name. I have it enter the date in brackets. So for example on the iPod it would show like ALBUM> "[1996] Devil Without A Cause". I actually prefer it this way because the iPod doesn't show the DATE meta data in any of the displayable fields.
