Full Version: Library node and category removal
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Well, to start, I am brand new to the forum. There are endless resources but couldn't find exactly my situation. I am wanting to remove the nodes or categories from my home screen that show genres, studios, etc. I had them all removed but the minute I added tv shows from my source, it added se of them back on? I just want to see ghe tv show poster, then go into seasons(which I also am struggling to figure out) and then each episode in that season. Can anyone help me? Please?

There is no setting to remove those. You will need to remove the Category files from the program folder.
In the program installation folder you would go to \system\library\video\tvshows (not the Kodi data folder (wiki) or Userdata (wiki) folders)
Delete all the *.xml files.

What is the problem with Seasons?
I added a Library Node that allows for changes and delwtions to these different categories. I went in there and deleted them all and they are still appearing. I have screenshots but don't know how to attach them for you to see.

As far as the seasons go, I got that figured except for 1 minor thing, it gives the folder "*All seasons." Is there a way to get rid of that? Otherwise, I think I'm doing good. Thank you for your help with this.

ah, ok. That has copied those xml files to the Userdata (wiki)\library\ folder for user editing. So you need to delete those files in both places. Delete or remove the xml extension, in case you want them back at a later stage.

Setting 3.1... https://kodi.wiki/view/Settings/Media/Videos#Library
Ok, slowly getting there. I have ghe all seasons resolved. I located where the xml files are and there are no xml files as it relates to the categories. It would seem that when I deleted yhem from the menu, they were deleted from the xml files BUT I follow that Kodi has go be picking up that info from somewhere within  the program. I just can't find where. I could read them and try to delete from xml file?
What OS is Kodi installed on? Windows?
Post a Debug Log and I can tell you exactly where to go on your system.
Its on a firestick 4k, so Android I think. Sadly, I don't know how to do that. However, I did find a skin with nodes configured the way I'm looking for. I really appreciate all your help.
