Help collections with year

Post by gabwzr »

Good Evening,

I am looking to organize some films better and I would like to separate some into collections. in the research done here on the forum, I managed to get close to the result I would like using the following code:

Code: Select all

{vf}/{collection} {cy.join('-')}/{n.colon(' - ')} ({y})/{n.colon(' - ')} ({y}){if (ext == 'srt') '.pt-BR'}{fn.match(/.FORCED/)}
Result:

Code: Select all

1080p/Avatar Collection 2009-2028/Avatar (2009)/Avatar (2009).mkv
but only the year of the collection between brackets is missing. I would like a result close to:

Code: Select all

1080p/Avatar Collection (2009-2028)/Avatar (2009)/Avatar (2009).mkv
1080p/James Bond Collection 1962-2020/Quantum of Solace (2008)/Quantum of Solace (2008).mkv
1080p/3 Things (2017)/3 Things (2017).mkv
I tried to put the parentheses manually between the {cy} function, but when there is no collection a folder "()" is created.
I also tried to use the {any {collection} ...} function but I was unable to make the years appear. I didn't quite understand this function.

I would like to know if anyone could help me with these questions.
Thank you very much.

Code: Select all

{vf}{ any{'/' + collection + ' (' + cy.join('-') + ')'} {''} }{'/' + ny}{'/' + ny}
or

Code: Select all

{vf}{ allOf{'/' + collection + ' (' + cy.join('-') + ')'} {''}.join() }{'/' + ny}{'/' + ny}
or

Code: Select all

{vf}{ allOf{'/' + collection}{' (' + cy.join('-') + ')'}.join() }{'/' + ny}{'/' + ny}

I'd write it like this:

Code: Select all

{vf}{"/${collection} (${cy.join('-')})"}/{plex.tail}
If collection fails, or if cy fails, then {expression} yields no result:

Filebot syntax of Collections with the year is cy. I need reverse order how should I do or is it possible? I want to start greater values of the year then descent order to lower values of the year.

{cy} default is [2004, 2020] which lower year is first, then next. But I want rather do it reverse order [2020, 2004]

Any help would be glad. Thanks.
