Description

Most songs' titles in Lyricswiki have this format: "Title" featuring Singer/Group, where featuring is not part of the song's title - it's just an extra informational suffix.

Meanwhile songs in anyone's collection are named either: "Title feat. Singer/Group" or "Title (feat. Singer/Group)", so the lyrics wiki plugin doesn't yield any results.

Please, make this plugin strip everything in brackets, e.g.

"This is a name of a song (feat. Some Singer) [Year 2013]" should be queried as "This is a name of a song".

Thank you.

Are you saying that the songs in your music collection are tagged with titles similar to "This is a name of a song (feat. Some Singer) [Year 2013]"?

#2 Updated by Artem S. Tashkinov almost 11 years ago

Yes, some of them are.

Some are "This is a name of a song (feat. Some Singer)"

Others are "This is a name of a song (featured Some Singer)"

Then I have some songs "This is a name of a song (ft. Some Singer)"

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
  • Target version deleted (38)
  • Affects version deleted (3.0, 3.0.1, 3.0.2, 3.0.3, 3.0.4, 3.1, 3.1.1, 3.2-alpha1, 3.2-beta1, 3.1.2, 3.2-beta2, 3.2, 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 3.2.3, 3.3-alpha1, 3.2.4, 3.3-beta1, 3.3-beta2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.3.1, 3.3.2, 3.3.3, 3.3.4, 3.4-alpha1)

An option could be added for this. It wouldn't do to make it the default behavior, though, since that would break song titles that legitimately contain parentheses.

I'm only asking this thing to be implemented only ...

"if it cannot find the lyrics for the original title".

No plans to implement this currently. Probably better for it to be implemented on the server side anyway.
