Brick  How to hide items from root view?
Post: #1
In MyMusicNav.xml from context menu if we select "Go to root" we reach at the root of navigation.
That root screen displays many items for example: Genres, Albums, Artists, Songs, Years, Top 100 , Search , Playlists etc.
How can we tell xbmc (through skinning or any other way) not to display items named "Search" and "Compilations"?

Thanks for help in advance.

You can't in music.

You can in videos (check a May nightly).

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Will this eventually get rolled into the GUI or is it strictly for the advanced user and manually editing .xmls?

If we can come up with a decent way to do it, sure.
