Using a human friendly folder structure and multiple music sources
#15
Wanting to navigate sources directly to albums  is very reasonable, shame I didn't think about that when I implemented it! I will look at making that improvement (and sort out the whole group by thing that jjd has brought up if I can).

Meanwhile the only way around explaining to the wife I can think of is for you to make a set of filter type custom nodes of  "albums" each with a "source is X" rule, and put them under a separate menu. It is not slick, and tedious if you have a lot of sources now or will be adding news ones frequently, but it is a way to avoid that extra step at artists level.

Example for one of my music sources: ClassicalSourceAlbums.xml
Code:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<node order="1" type="filter" visible="Library.HasContent(Music)">
    <label>Classical Albums</label>
    <icon>ClassicalAlbums.png</icon>
    <content>albums</content>
    <rule field="source" operator="is">
        <value>Classical Music</value>
    </rule>
</node>
