No season folder for miniseries?

Post by AbedlaPaille »

Can filebot skip season folder creation on miniseries but still retain them on 2+ seasons shows? Sorry if this has been asked already.

Yes, of course, but you'll need to somehow guess at what constitutes a "miniseries" in code.

Situation 1: TVDB has several seasons for this show
Result 1: Season folder creation
Example 1: Fringe/Season 2/Fringe - S02E02 - Night of Desirable Objects
---
Situation 2: TVDB has only one season for this show
Result 2: No season folder creation
Example 2: Firefly/Firefly - S01E01 - The Train Job

That's how i see it working. Based on a combination of id and season count. Not sure how to make it happen though.

e.g. {sc} season count binding:

Code: Select all

sc == 1 ? "Single Season Series" : "Multi Season Series"

Although this could backfire if a show is ongoing and not ended, you may want to check that as well.

I suppose {genres} could work then:

Code: Select all

"Mini-Series" in genres

Code: Select all

{n}{sc == 1 && ('Mini-Series' in genres || info.status == 'Ended') ? '' : "/Season ${s.pad(2)}"}{'/'+plex.name}
btw: Missing on TV

Code: Select all
