Tag editor missing?

Unread post by troycarpenter » 14 Feb 2017, 19:47

on Madsonic 6.2.9240 I seem to be missing the MP3 tag editor. It used to be available from a track listing for an album, but now it's not there.

Did it move or is is MIA?

Tag editor is visible only in the album view, recheck your MediaType.

to enable on main.view: Settings > Admin Panel > Show MediaType button

I have that enabled. Here's what it looks like now:

If I hit any one of the buttons (Videoset, Artist or Album), I get this:

And hitting any of those two buttons (Albumset or Album) puts be back to the the first picture (which says now ALBUMSET)

In none of those screens did I get the "edit tag" command.

So somewhere along the way, I got the list from ALBUMSET to ALBUM, but I don't know how. The tag editor does show up in that mode:

And just like that it's gone again...I never changed anything:

Is there a difference in how I get to that screen? The screen shot in the last post was after an artist search, but I thought I did the same to get to the screen above.

please go to Settings > Admin Panel > Show MediaType button

... and activate with this option an additional configuration panel to switch between MediaTypes.

Thanks,

This is now acting differently for the admin user vs. my personal account which is setup as an admin user. When logged in as admin I can see the Media Type button, and I can see the Tag Editor button. But when I log in as myself, with admin privileges, I don't get that. I have yet to figure out if there is something missing from my account permissions to make that happen.

Also, I've now seen a few times where I log in and all my permissions are gone. I then have to edit the user to add the appropriate permissions/options back. I have seen that with at least three other users, all of us are configured for LDAP authentication. I usually figure out this has happened when songs stop downloading in DSub.
