Ability to exclude a sub folder in a shared folder

Postby helenseven » Mon Jul 23, 2012 11:45 am

Hi,
I think the ability to exclude a sub folder of a shared folder is an important missing feature; http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=14885.

For example say I want to share
User/Helen/Movies

but within that folder I want to exclude
User/Helen/Movies/Office party video


Perhaps one way to implement this might be by making PMS ignore folders that contain a text file in them called "noPMS.txt" ?

I like this idea, a lot! Unfortunately, over the years, my massive collection of MP3s have been renamed and reorganized so many times by so many different apps, that I may have triplicate subfolders with identical names to the main folder.
That said, "ignoreFolders.txt" is a great idea but might I further suggest that for each shared folder in PMS' config, a tick box be added for "recursive" - meaning, use the main folder and no subs. What this might cause is having to add "User/Helen/Movies/Horror", "User/Helen/Movies/Comedy" rather than "User/Helen/Movies" (with recursive UNticked).
Thoughts?
