Done ヾ(@⌒ー⌒@)ノ
I currently have an issue in which any TV show I download, it moves the files into the following directory;

Code: Select all

/home/<username>/Cloud/Shows/<Name of Show>/TV Shows
And instead I need it to just be

Code: Select all

/home/<username>/Cloud/Shows/<Season Number> etc.
Here is what is set up in my rtorrent post processing;

Code: Select all

filebot -script fn:amc --output "$CONFIG_OUTPUT" --action copy --conflict skip -non-strict --def "ut_label=TV" --def "ut_label=movie" --def "ut_label=music" -no-xattr --log-file amc.log --def unsorted=y music=y artwork=y excludeList="/home/<username>/.filebot/.excludes" ut_dir="$ARG_PATH" ut_kind=multi ut_title="$ARG_NAME" ut_label="$ARG_LABEL" --def @/home/<username>/.filebot/formatting &
My config_output is set to;

Code: Select all

CONFIG_OUTPUT="/home/<username>/Cloud"
In my formatting file however, here is my current setup;

Code: Select all

movieFormat=Movies/{n}/{plex}
seriesFormat=Shows/{n}/{plex}
animeFormat=Anime/{n}/{plex}
musicFormat=Music/{n}/{album+'/'}{pi.pad(2)+'. '}{artist} - {t}
I've tried all different ways to get the formatting right but I just can't work it out. Any advice anyone can give, would be appreciated.

Thanks

Please read this:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4116


e.g. {plex}

Code: Select all

TV Shows/Alias/Season 01/Alias - S01E01 - Truth Be Told
e.g. {plex.name}

Code: Select all

Alias - S01E01 - Truth Be Told

I guess you'll want to use {plex.name} since you only want the file name according to Plex standards, but with your own custom non-standard directory structure in front of that:

Code: Select all

Shows/{n}/{plex.name}

I highly recommend using the FileBot Format Editor when prototyping your custom formats, and only copy & pasting them in into your CLI script later on if and when you're happy with the results in the GUI:
