Hello,

I have only been using therenamer for a few days, so it may have this feature hidden. I have tried searching here but the things recommended to me via the "rename based on folder" topic doesnt work.

Ok so first off I am running Windows 64bit and TheRenamer does work. I have been getting a lot of !Episode title missing! however when I click on it, it brings up the proper shows page with no mysql errors.


I found out it couldn't figure out what season it is.

The file structure that I am dragging to TheRenamer is like this:
American dad\Season 1\1.avi
American dad\Season 1\2.avi
American dad\Season 1\3.avi

Now when I attempt to put this into the renamer.. it doesn't work. I have tried ticking "folder name" but that just makes the episode titles "American Dad Season 1.avi" in the renamer. It would be nice to have heuristics that read the file path to see when to start using the search terms. All my tvshow folders are like this.

Perhaps a setting to tell TheRenamer what file structure I'm inputting from?

Anyways, what DOES work however is:
American Dad\Season 1\1x1.avi
American Dad\Season 1\1x2.avi
American Dad\Season 1\1x3.avi

For some reason, that works perfect. So if you are unable to program in some search heuristics please try to work on a file renamer (afterall your program is called TheRenamer). So that way I can say, 'rename everything in this folder to have 1x infront' without having to pissfart around with batch files or for the less knowledgable.. individually put a 1x infront of each avi file.

I really like the idea of your program. I've wanted something that would actually move files for me rather then just 'import' everything into their stupid database and not physically sort the files on my drive.

If you could sort out this problem I would be very greatfull.

Oh here's my log:

As you can see manually renaming the file works but is time consuming. So if you are unable to add some more search strings when the initial scan of the file happens (ie if season after season shows number make myseason number else continue. I can't program but I'm sure you get the gist)

Otherwise could you please try to add a decent inside folder manual renamer? Perhaps like a popup "error found, please rename this file by clicking on me" and it shows the file path and has the option to rename the file right there in the program.

I really like your program and I hope you can make it work for me :).

Looking into it now. I have some ideas.

I presume ALL your Season folder name is the same?
'Season ' + number.

I can match how you've setup Season folder name from the TV settings (Moving File Structure).
If it's the same, then I'll know the folder is actually a Season folder and not the name of the show.

Sorry, after trying, I don't think I'll do the changes.
It's more complicated as theRenamer looks for valid TV show formats S01E01 / 1X01 /101 (min 3 digits).

I'd rather just pass u a .bat file that adds "American Dad.1x" in front of all your files. or whatever season you wish.

I'll post the .bat up for anyone who needs something like that.
