[BUG] Duplicate Episode Names

Postby JuzzyBear » Sun Oct 02, 2016 8:06 pm

It appears you guys have released a new feature (?) to stop the same episode name being entered twice. This is fine if it checks within the same season, but if it checks in multiple seasons, then we have a big problem. Like now.

If an episode is called "Episode 1", "Episode 2" in each season, of which there are a LOT of shows like this, then your check takes place and doesn't allow the episode to be created.

I believe this is a bug, but correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks!

I can confirm that this is a problem - have just had issues adding a few new episodes because of it...

You're correct, it stops duplicate seasons (of the same episodes) being created but there's many series that have the same generic titles. Let's see if we can do something about that.
Please link to the series/episode page and your sources. Wikipedia is NOT a valid source.

It's adjusted now. It will only check within seasons.
Please don't PM me. Post in the forums instead unless there is a very good reason for a PM or I won't respond.
