Old hat at *arr/Plex, but new to PGBlitz so maybe I’m overlooking something.

Sub folders - I need more than just /movies, I need other directories such as /movies.kids, etc. This does not appear possible?

*arr file naming - I’ll customize how I like, save, and find my setting overwritten. Is this expected?

If both of these are by design.... WHY, and is there a way to return to the level of customization I’m used to?

Just add the wanted folders in *arr, this will work. So eg. if you add a movie to /mnt/unionfs/movies_kids or /mnt/unionfs/movies/kids it will upload to that folder (which you may have to create first on the shared drive).

No, settings should of course not be overwritten, never had this issue...

Whatever the hell was going on with *arr, it's fixed now. Maybe it was the Safari browser on the PC I was using?

As for the subfolders - I was creating subdirs but they were being deleted. There must be something that deletes empty folders. If I made a subdir and simultaneously moved something in there, ie: "mkdir kids.tv.shows; mv ../DuckTales.2017 kids.tv.shows/" then that folder stuck around. New to this and it was late, I should have been more patient. Thanks!

Are there any special permissions that need to be created? As I understand it, the docker containers for each *arr app have specific permissions that are automatically configured during install.

I'd love to have my library organised into sub categories too, but haven't yet found any way to do this easily.
