Artist and Album Navigation

Post by alzarath »

It looks like the only way to actually browse your music collection is to use a playlist or search for specific artists, tracks, and albums. It would be very useful if we could have access to full lists of all available artists and albums in the web view.

There are many other options:
  • List Artis by first letter # a - z.
    • Afterward you can Explode and Implode the view (this will be remembered for the next click)
    • And switch between list and thumbnail view (this will also be remembered)
  • To view all tracks from one Artist click on "View all nn tracks from Artist Name"
  • View by
    • year
    • new
    • popular
    • genre
  • View Albums by filetype in Config > Media statistics
And there are tons of navigation options to switch between artist, album, year and genre.

This is already implemented: go to the "media" tab and press enter (Search album artist with an empty query)
When afterward clicking on one of the two white icons in the blue row you get all albums, first will list all albums and second will show all thumbnails of the albums.

I suppose it's more of an accessibility thing, then. Perhaps the view of items could be placed below the search box immediately on load and the search box can be used to filter it? If not default, as an option.
