hi, i had a look through the wiki at conditional tagging, and i tried looking on google, but i'm still stuck.
i make a lot of use out of foobar's 'file operations' menu, i use the 'move to' option, and use it to organize my music into folders that makes everything more managable.

at the moment i have something like this:

%album artist%/%album%[ '('%date%')']/%tracknumber% - %title%

i'm not sure why the date in enclosed in the square brackets, but it has been like that for months and it works smile.gif
could anyone explain what the square brackets do?

i have a problem when i come across a release with multiple disks, it wants to put all of the tracks in the one release directory.

i want something like this:

album artist
-album (date)
--DISC 1
---01 - etc etc etc.flac
---02 - etc etc etc.flac
--DISC 2
---01 - etc etc etc.flac
---02 - etc etc etc.flac

i was hoping that someone could help me with the syntax/code to make this possible smile.gif
is it possible to ignore the disc folder if there is only 1 disc? as in, if the disk total tag, or whatever it is called, is 1, or empty, then to simply ignore making the disc subfolders?

thank you very much for this, i appreciate it!

p.s. also, what is the difference between using $meta(something..) and %something%? are they interchangeable?
thanks again smile.gif
