Orange circles with numbers

Can someone tell me what these circles with numbers are? Must be for something, but I can't figure it out.
Thanks!

Artists' top tracks pulled from last.fm. You can then play the artists top tracks that you have in subsonic.

Thanks. Okay, how would I do that? If I click on Artists I get only a search box. If I enter an artist name, nothing is ever returned.

This feature looks very useful, it would be great if I could figure it out.

Hi Clifford,

this info should help you to get Artist TopTrack to work with Madsonic 5.1 final


if you start from scratch you should check your media folder setup:
  • go to > Settings > Media folders
  • add your folder with artists to your collection

  • select the folder group Music for this folder otherwise you artists are not indexed.
  • save your Settings
  • scan your media folders
  • wait until finished (search index will generated at last)
  • go to > Settings > Last.FM
  • enable Last.FM TopTrack search

  • select the request result size for Last.FM and your local database.
    10 for best performance/weaker results or 50 for best match results/weaker performance.
  • the Last.FM cache is implemented in three phases, xml files, database and memory.
    The caching happen only on the first time, so it may take some seconds longer depending on the search result size.

  • in this example you see the result: from LastFM 50 tracks found/local 22 tracks found
  • in the PlayQueue frame you can see the orderd result of the artist ABBA.
  • nice gimmick: use tag editor to add/edit your own ranking. ;)
best regards

Thanks for posting that. I'm doing a track cleanup as I type.
