Optional Features

Post by blaubär » Sun Aug 18, 2019 5:11 am

It sometimes happens that optional features are still accessible although they are not enabled - bug or feature ?
See here for a recent example where this inconsistency (or so it seems) confounded a user :

since last few months, the "playlists" tab where you can see the artist,genre. folders and sources is keeps disappearing. only way i can get it back is to go into the settings/user interface/media library. Once i go there, all i have to do is move it randomly and save and it appears again. I close the app and open it and its gone again. anyone know why this happens? real annoying having to go through all that to change playlists. thanks

What exactly was the reason to make some features optional ?
I found an old topic suggesting something similar - was this the starting point ?

Hi, it would be nice to have an additional settings option (with the radio buttons you use) to turn off/on unused features and even the settings in the main settings screen as there are way to many that never get used.
One would be the option to remove the wake and sleep timer buttons at the top of the main screen as well as their settings at the the top of the settings screen. Even the main screens settings button, as the settings can be accessed from the phones menu button (Galaxy S4). I never use these and find them somewhat annoying, and I wouldn't be surprised if others agree on this.

The best solution I would suggest is to have all these settings hidden from the settings page by default when first installing the app at first instance and have an additional setting that gives the option to turn ON or OFF other additional settings within the screen
