Rename Mask for Plex

Hello, as I am using more often the Plexamp app I thought it would be a good idea to rename my files and folders according to their recommendation.
The existing template does not follow exactly the recommended naming convention of Plex:

The problem I have here is the handling of multi-disc album, which is not covered in the existing mask.
Could someone give me support for creating the mask which follows exactly the recommended file structure?

One additional question: I just want to rename my files and folders. I don’t want to mess with the tags inside of the files. What is the recommended way to do this with Songkong?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, okay if you go to Preferences, Edit the [ Plex Music Scanner ] AlbumArtist/Album/Track - Title rename mask and add

+ ifmultidisc(discno)

so you have

+ ifnotempty(album,'/')
+ ifmultidisc(discno)
+ ifnotempty(pad(trackno,2),' - ')
+ title

and select OK does that work as required, I think it should and I have raised an issue to address this

Currently the only way to rename files without modifying them is to modify the Fix Songs task so that Search for a MusicBrainz Match, Update from Discogs and Search for a Discogs Match options on the Match tab are disabled. For most users this will prevent matching and work but cannot eliminate every single possible change, there are a few modifications that could still occur.

In the new version of SongKong (due within the next two weeks) there will be a new Rename Files task to make this easy.

Plex rename mask is now fixed is now fixed in new version - SongKong 9.0 Drukqs released 11th of May 2023
