Summary0006742: Podcast UI issues
DescriptionThere are several small UI issues in Podcasts handling:
1. An attempt to Subscribe to a Podcast that doesn't exist (URL isn't accessible) causes showing of 2 error dialogs - both showing the same content.
2. Podcast Subscription List isn't updated on:
 2a. Podcast Addition
 2b. Podcast Deletion
 2c. As a special case of 2a, if no Podcasts are subscribed and the list is expanded, the plus sign disappears and on a new Subscription it doesn't appear until MM restart.
3. Unsubscribe dialog always appears in the top-left corner of screen.
4. On Subscribe, the dialog defaults to
  [x] Customize subscription rules...
 I think that it should rather be unchecked by default (and preferably the controls below would be hidden in such a case).
TagsNo tags attached.

2a) Yes, this is intended to not subscribe invalid podcasts

2d) I don't understand what you mean by "Location isn't updated"

5) Fixed in build 1349

2a) The subscription to the invalid Podcast does happen and collapse/expand will show it in the Subscription node.

2d) Under the Podcast > Location node the new folder doesn't show automatically when it's created by adding a new Podcast.

Confirmed on Lowlander steps.

Thanks, you are right.

BTW: If I think about it, MM should add and focus even currently inaccessible podcast URLs (the server might be just down for whatever reason and user wanted to subscribe it immediatelly)

Fixed in build 1350.

Verified in 1350, subscribing to invalid podcast works as expected.

6) When subscribing to a Podcast in the Podcast node (Right click on Subscription node) it will focus on the new Podcast subscription in the Entire Library node. I think it should focus on the subscription in the current Collection.

4. Is fixed now, but it results in a lot of empty space in the dialog. What should happen is to resize the dialog in this case. (Alternatively, the checkbox could be converted to a button and open a new dialog, but the current solution is probably better).

4) I would go with resizing the dialog, there is enough proliferation of dialog boxes in MediaMonkey as it is. Alternatively showing all the options but disabling them has the benefit that the user sees what options are available.
