Hello people

please forgive my ignorance I am new here, even though I have been using DVD profiler for some years.
It has always done everything I ever wanted of it.

Now I am starting a Blu-ray collection and wish to keep the new collection seperate from the old DVD collection,
how do I do this is it possible to run 2 databases within one copy of dvd profiler
or do I run 2 seperate instances of profiler each with it's own database

Wht I would really like is something like the tabs for all, owned, ordered and wish list.
and have something there that gives a choice of say DVD or Blu-ray.

I guess for now I will put all my blu-ray movies in the wish list tab since I have never used that before.
but would like the program to accept divisions like
1. Zone 1 DVDs
2. Zone 2 DVDs
3. Zone 4 DVDs
4. Blu-ray Discs
as I have a fairly large percentage of overseas DVDs

Hope someone with a better knowledge of this program can show me what to do
Regards

Bernie

are you asking for the desktop program? because you posted this in the feature request of the mobile version. if you are this probably would have been better placed in the technical support forum (or possibly feature request forum) for the main program as there is generally more traffic there.

however, to answer your question. What you really want is custom tabs, which has been requested at least once before but probably more. mediadogg has made a My Tabs plug in that will allow you to do this. it is available from the plugin download page
he also has a forum post about it.

as far as other ways. You could also create a separate database as the program allows you to have more than one. You can only upload one database though and can only view one at a time. And I believe you can only sync one to the mobile device (though by your icon it does not appear you use this)

you can also filter on formats and view just DVD, just Blu-Ray, just HD-DVD or even a combination there of. you can also create a tag for this, but thats kind of pointless since you can already filter by this field. as for your Zones (i assume you are referring to Regions) you can also filter by regions under general but unlike other filters you couldn't filter by say all dvds that are region 1 and\or region 2. tags for each region would be able to accomplish this however.

I believe the My Tabs plugin uses filters as one of its methods for whats on each tab

Thanks for your comments Agrare

yes I have posted in the wrong place and this thread should probably be closed / deleted
I think you have answered my questions regardless of my ignorance.

I will go and read the Plugin forum post and thread
hopefully this will make it easy for me to do the thing I am now trying to do

Regards

Bernie
