Yeah, I put a halt on using this plugin until I get my skin basics up in order. I used the wrong background, and for some reason some of my album cover art just stretched instead of reflecting. Eventually, I want to get back into it and figure it all out, just right now, it's been placed on the back-burner.

I'm updating my skin with this plugin and if I understand what I have to do to sort my databases by dateadded is:

First add an entry in .ini file with :

General - Add Standard Tags = true
General - Get Date Added From File = true

Then execute the event "database add extre tags" with database as parameter.

Now I can sort the database.

That's working ok, just take note beginners to define Format Date Sort = yyMMddHHmm instead of Format Date Sort = yyMMddhhmm.

But.... So, to see a new entry in my category I have to do a refresh event to add the entry in xml database file, then xdb add tags event to add new info, and finally do again a refresh event to watch it.

Is that right? may it be easier? I'd prefer not see two screen redisplays.

Thanks in advance.
