Hi, would it be hard to make artist names in top 5 on the main page to links to their discography? Or is it like this on purpose? It sometimes gets annoying when I want to quickly get on Davis' or Coltrane's discography.

Thanks

The top 5 list on the main page is the top 5 most popular albums, not the most popular artists, needless to say, if you click on that album's title you will get that album, not the artist page.

If you want the artist involved, just click on the album, and on the next page click on the artist and you will get their full discography.

As far as changing the front page so that it would not show the 5 most popular albums, but instead show the 5 most popular artists, that would require a change from the site owner plus lots of work, I doubt he is going to want to do that. Wink

I'm talking only about changing it to:
Kind of Blue (link to album page)
Miles Davis (link to his discography)

nothing else :)

I'm not sure if that can be changed, and either way, it would require the owner to change it and I don't think he's going to do that.
I understand the convenience, that would be nice.
