    Why is the mixed artist name searched in addition to the the two single artist names? The separators were introduced to handle mixed artists separately.

    The separator simply adds options, but does not remove the option that is recorded in the music tag.

    There was one artist in the tag, and depending on the name of the artist and separators we get from one to a number of artists. And each of this option is equivalent and processed the same way.

    A1 and A2 if separator and present, return three variants: A1 and A2|A1|A2 ... If not present then only one variant A1 and A2...

    OK, I give up this improvement proposal. This case will happen seldom and I have a workaround to handle it (change the key and file names in the FH DB).

    But could you please tell me why the new DontSplitArtistByAnd option doesn't work anymore since your optimisation? Before the Fanarts for "Marina And The Diamonds" had been stored only once, now they are duplicate again:
    Code:
      <section name="Advanced">
        <entry name="SkipFeatArtist">no</entry>
        <entry name="DontSplitArtistByAnd">yes</entry>
      </section>
      <section name="Separators">
        <entry name="sep0"> feat </entry>
        <entry name="sep1"> feat. </entry>
        <entry name="sep2"> featuring </entry>
        <entry name="sep3"> pres </entry>
        <entry name="sep4"> pres. </entry>
        <entry name="sep5"> presents </entry>
        <entry name="sep6"> vs </entry>
        <entry name="sep7"> vs. </entry>
        <entry name="sep8"> versus </entry>
      </section>

    I added this option and immediately removed, I wrote about it. This option is not, therefore, it does not work.

    Sorry, I missed this information!
    It worked out well when it was implemented. Why did you remove it?

    I think that this is not necessary ...

    Oh, what a pity! I really appreciated your change!
    Many single artists have "and" in their name and the separator causes wrong search results.
    Could you please leave this choice up to the user, by an option in the XML file? It doesn't harm.

    I won’t add an option, but maybe I’ll remove it from the source code altogether ... We need to find out when and why it was added ...

    But if you don’t have And in the delimiters, then nothing changes for you, except for a little more pictures. But the Fanart will be visible as before.

    I did an extensive test when the DontSplitArtistByAnd option enabled when it was implemented and the search worked perfectly fine.
    I think it was implemented at a time when the FH processing was not as intelligent and safe as today and therefore is not necessary anymore.
    If you remove the "and" separator from the code I will do an extensive long-term test and five you feedback. In case of issues you can revert this change. What do you think?
