Ah ha! I'm not the only one missing the old v16 "Recently Added" sub-tab under "Movies"

Question: with this edit to Confluence, can you change the number of Recently Added items from 5 to, say, 20? Or, perhaps, specify how far back in time "Recently Added" considers something 'recent'?

Thanks

Watch the first youtube video in this post. It is a program addon that allows you to edit the nodes within Kodi itself.

Thanks. Installed the node Editor and mucked around with it a bit, but w/o success. Was able to add a new node ("New Adds"), and it defaulted to 25 items (YEA!), but can't find any Rule that selects based on most recently added library items. So, the tab simply lists the 25 titles starting on the first hard drive. Sorry - I'm only mucking around in "Movies'

Also found a subtab under Movies called "Recently Added Movies" and was able to move it to be first in the subtabs under "Movies", but - again - can't find a way to Rule it to listing those most recently added to the library (and my new subtab "New Adds" shows up under this "Recently Added Movies" subtab.

In V17 the Welcome Screen, under Confluence, has as a standard feature a "recently added" list that is shown above the main menu items, but it only lists 5 titles. If there is just a way to increase the default to, say, 25 titles this whole problem would be solved!

Has anyone been able to use this add-on to re-add the 'Recently Added" buttons to the Home Screen under Movies and TV Shows?

I am only able to edit/re-order sub menu items under the Videos menu, similar to how the You Tube video earlier in the thread creates a new menu item under music.

I am running Kodi 17.0 Git:a10c504 on LibreELEC 8.0.

I figured it out. I had to toggle the "Flatten Hierarchy" setting as described in the post below.

Once I toggled it, I was able to get the Library Node Editor to display the proper options and I could make the necessary changes.
