Background fanart from same catagory?

TibolTibol Posts: 3Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I'm really loving this skin. Is there a way to have each catagory only show fanart from its own catagory on the main page? For example, it shows movie, tv, etc.. fanart when on the music catagory and vise versa. It would be nice for my (2 yr old) daughter's video catagory to only show her art and not some other movie art I'd rather her not see.

 

Example:

 samsplex.jpg

 

Oh, one more thing. Is there a way to remove empty boxs like the ones below?

Thank you,

 

Tim

    I don't know if I understand you correctly but this should already be the default behavior right now. If you select a specific library section in the home menu only fanart from this library should be shown in the background. Also if you want to prevent certain library sections/backdrops showing up you should create a new user account for your kids which only gives them access to the libraries you want them to have access to ...

    Im not sure whats up with mine, but my fanart is definitely not being pulled from its corresponding folders.

    My setup: Server running PMS on WinXP64bit, HTPC running PHT on WinXP64bit.

    Scratch that, I meant My setup: Server running PMS on Win7 pro 64bit, HTPC running PHT on Win7 pro 64bit.

    XP is pretty damn old, unsupported and not secure since Microsoft no longer releases updates. Time to upgrade?

    Wow, did I write XP?  I meant Win7 Pro 64bit on both the server and the HTPC. I guess old habits are hard to brake.
