Clicking on artist in player should send to 'artist' page

Post by alystair »

in topic, basically clicking on the name of song should take you to the album view, while artist should show all songs by artist :D

I'm pretty sure MM already does this if you enable the "Links in tracklist" option at Options > Appearance.

Yes, I already understand what you mean. You want to click the names in the Player. MM already allows that if you enable the option I mentioned.

It does not? Or maybe I am not looking in correct area? This is the only place I see 'appearance' with what I have currently checked off..

Yes, that 's the option I mean. It worked in MM3, in MM4 it wouldn't work depending on how the skin has the display set up in the player. If it's using the "Summary" format in the player, then it wouldn't work in MM4.

Wouldn't this be considered a bug then?

No, not if the skin was using the Summary format.

For example, try with this skin:

It works just like you described.
