Post subject:  Adding YEAR Option to TV Show File Names

Hey Pete,

I have a small request regarding file naming for TV shows. Right now I use this naming scheme:

Doctor Who - S01E01 - An Unearthly Child [1963-11-23]

What I'd like to be able to do is have this option:

Doctor Who (1963) - S01E01 - An Unearthly Child [1963-11-23]

The main reason for this request is consistency. Some shows have a year in the title and some and some don't. I believe all movies and TV shows should have the year included to help prevent version confusion.

Thanks,

Todd

Currently the token (Y) in episodes returns the episode number.

There is a workaround. But it is manual work renaming series via metadata tab.

Add the year to Show Name hit save. then click file tab and auto-rename all.

If Metadata Show Name respected the T T (Y) series name then you wouldn't need an additional token.

That's not much of a workaround if you have a lot of shows. Any chance the (Y) token could be fixed to deliver the expected result (YEAR)?

Feel free to add it to the Issue Tracker with a link to this topic and post the tracker number in this topic.

I believe this would be a feature request because it was probably never intended for episodes. But that is my opinion, it could be a considered a bug.

I cannot speak to whether this worked in the build number above but I just downloaded and installed v2.17 build 26917.859, and when I enter (Y) to the episode naming scheme I still get the episode number.

ex: Gotham (2) - S04.E02 - A Dark Knight, The Fear Reaper.mkv

What are you trying to do? What token are you using? As (AIRED) provides what OP wanted.

From your example do you want this?
