Trouble using "time" for directory naming


#1

Hi,

I’m currently having trouble getting this directory structure to work:

"$%time{$added,%W.%Y}/[$year] $album%aunique{}/$track - $title"

When I execute the ‘import’ command, I get this result:

%time{2017-07-24 01_30_00,%W}

Not sure what I’m doing wrong. Any help here is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Hello! To use functions, just use %func{}; there’s no need to proceed that with a $. In fact, doing so “escapes” the % and inserts a literal % instead of interpreting it as a function call. So give this a try:

"%time{$added,%W.%Y}/[$year] $album%aunique{}/$track - $title"

Or, if you really meant to start the whole thing with a $, use $$.
