Naming more than one tv show Specials for scrapping

Jul 25, 2016 at 10:00 PM
Usually I'll name the example s01e00 and that works but what if the show has multiple specials in the season?

You can look up the specials on TheTVDB website. Under the name of the tv show look in the specials season. Put all your specials in a folder name "Specials" or "Season 0". In the specials folder use the naming convention of S00Exx.

too slow again... LOL.

Yes, as BesterH13 mentioned above.

Just a note:
Moderators on TVDb do not allow DVD specials to be listed against the Series Special folder.
If the series is locked, you can ask in the forum to have a episode added to the Series.

All else fails, copy a NFO from an existing episode, and edit it to have Season 0, and increment the Episode number.
If the special airs before a specific episode in a normal Season, you can add the tags
<displayseason></displayseason>
<displayepisode></displayepisode>
ie:
<displayseason>1</displayseason>
<displayepisode>10</displayepisode>
for the special airing in Season 1, and before episode 5. Kodi will list this episode in this position when displaying the season 1 episodes.

Finally, Having an episode listed as Episode 00 is not correct, and shouldn't be done.
