the auto play lists are not made until you click on the list to view the songs.
auto lists are just a set of rules looking for the item in the song properties that you told it to look for.
Cowboy forgot to tell you that. And about the magic nodes script that you can also use for more advanced rules.
A few questions about the auto-playlist function:
1- Does anyone have a created "custom code list" that they are willing to share? I think that creating my own from scratch would be very time consuming & reiterative & will require many iterations.
2- To add the custom codes: You just click "properties" for each track and type the custom codes in any of the custom fields, is that correct?
3- Would the autoplaylist work if the code is in different custom fields for different tracks?
4- Is there a reason to use the different custom fields for each code rather than separating them w/a comma in the same custom field?
5- Can someone kindly explain the magic node script in a way suitable for the little people?

2) Yes
3) Not really, it's best to use a single field for the same type of value, otherwise AutoPlaylists will be a big hassle to setup (although possible most likely)
4) Custom fields aren't multi-value, but AutoPlaylists can do Custom 1 contains value x.
5) Ask Addon related questions in the Addons own form thread.

1- custom code I'm talking about and imagehopper posted is just a code you make up for your own unique library of music it is not possible for someone to make a code for others as it involves the likes of the library owners artists and musical style.
