Support
Due to high volume of PMs request for support, plus it's unwise to repeat an answer over and over in different PMs therefore, please note :
  • In-Topic Support priority is given to Everyone who has installed
  • Private Message Support is given only to Contributors, Helpers, Donators and Beta Test Volunteers
Introduction
This is the SEO friendly yet Advanced AJAX powered Musicbox by DnP Network™. It is found by Silveryhat in the late 2008 and early 2009. The original version was first use way back in the '06 or '07 with limited functions and no ajax support. A serious upgrade and rebuilding have been made few weeks ago for this release. Main goal was to make it faster and compatible with all vBulletin forums. This project is the hard work of Silveryhat and DnP Administrator of DnP Network™, we wish to bring the best to the vB community.



DnP Instant! Musicbox is free for non-commercial, non-profit use. Otherwise, please read the Notice at the end of this post.
Requirements
  • Host supports AJAX
  • Administrator skill level MUST be intermediate, for you must know what you are doing. 70% of the issues was because Admin does not have a clue of the host configuration and what the notice tries to tell them when a problem occurs. Also the other 20% is because Admin does not read the 2-Step Installation Guide carefully. I will not give support for such situations.
  • vBulletin from 3.5.x to 3.8.x
Simplified 2-Step Installation :
1. Upload all files and folders under the "upload" folder to your forum root.

2. Run forum_root/install_dnp_musicbox.php to setup new tables to your database. This little friendly webpage is also AJAX supported. Delete it after you have finished installing the data.



[Note] : For Unix host, please make sure the folder you have uploaded the musicbox content to is CHMOD to 666 or 777 (writable) if you receive a permission error during installation.
And, That's all for the installation step!

IF you have installed successfully :
Read HOW-TO & F.A.Q
Mark as Installed for Support - Vote for it.
Nominate for MOTM.
Was the Installation Process easy ?
Customizations :
  • Now proceed to AdminCP » DnP Musicbox Options to add new categories, artists (optional), and albums (optional).
  • Use the Configuration Editor from Musicbox Homepage » Administrator's Quick Panel to customize the your personal musicbox !
There is no manual template change needed, unless you would want a musicbox link to show on navigation bar, too.

Access forum_root/music.php to start your musicbox!

Brief
Now, it is time to speed up the rest of the introduction. Here's the small summary of DnP Instant! Musicbox with some picture links and one giant screenshot.

Member's Instant! Musicbox:
These are great boards that have supported the development of DnP Instant! Musicbox. Some of them has donated money or purchased the branding-free license which greatly encourages further growth of the musicbox itself. I appreciate your kindness and I hope your forum will extend to its best.

All Updates and History log

Notice: Default theme of musicbox and images are properties of DnP Network™, they should not be used any where else but the musicbox without permission. DnP Instant! Musicbox Copyright notice is not to be removed without a purchase of branding-free version else your domain and forum will be reported to Piracy Report.

Paid Request & Branding-free License:
Paid request is optional and available up to demand, because a few of us would want to extend the musicbox ability to another level. Click here to check out what is available.

Media Copyrights Infringement :
Please do not abuse the use of musicbox to create an illegal source of music. It's all your responsibility when it comes to these matters.

Please be aware : For every Modification, there are always bugs somewhere that the author have not yet found them himself. The same gravity applies for DnP Instant! Musicbox. Though I have manage to solve all the issues before anyone notices, there is still a great chance it's not perfectly bug free. Even vBulletin itself. I urge any kind souls who will contribute their time and effort, will help me improve it for every coming version. Bug reports, Ideas, Feedbacks are truly welcomed.

Update : From weekly to monthly per patch. Depend on requests, feedbacks and amount of bugs found.

2-Step Upgrade:
1. Upload all files and folders under the "upload" folder to your forum root.

2. Run forum_root/install_dnp_musicbox.php to upgrade tables. Current data will not be lost, only new columns are installed.

[Note] : For Unix host, please make sure the folder you have uploaded the musicbox content to is CHMOD to 666 or 777 (writable) if you receive a permission error during installation.
(..did I just copy almost exactly the two steps of installation here ._. )
Additional Plugins (varied authors) :
  1. Comment Block on Forum Home Index plugin (free)
  2. Who's Online Plugin for DnP Instant! Musicbox (free)
  3. DnP Instant! Musicbox's AJAX New Thread on Forum Home Index
  4. Media Block on Forum Home for DnP Instant! Musicbox (Display music list on your forum homepage - Simple version - Free)
  5. Posting Multiple Media Plugin (Quick way to post multiple media to musicbox database $1)
  6. DnP Instant! Box and Playlist on Forum Index (Display music list on your forum homepage - Advanced version - $5)
  7. Branding-Free License Purchase (Remove copyright line at bottom of page and allow the commercial use - $1)

Enjoy!

Bottom line - About Search Engines, Do they really crawl the content?:
Try this or this for examples.
My site rank is not high enough to beat other big sites, so I would narrow down the search to show that google does see the content of Musicbox.
Keyword : Leaving on a jet plane dnp or Honest Graduation Song dnp, as well as Baby I would dnp.
Here is the site search where it displays everything Google has gathered from the Musicbox : allinurl:silveryhat.com/delynie/music.php

How am I going to display artist image thumbnail in 1 box? Right now, I have it stack up on each other, and only show 1 thumbnail per line...????

Also, why can't I edit the artist bio information? We (both admin and users) do need the edit/delete feature for this, please. I meant to have the feature without editing in the admincp.

Also, for the article... can't we post media together with text????

Silver, maybe a module for vbadvanced, other than your a pretty much close as to what vbtube can do. One thing, when you upload music with vbtube, you have the ability to use your logo on the videos. I haven't uploaded any mp3s using it though.

Hey silveryhad,

I still cant us "Additional Usergroups" to give my members admin rights for the musicbox.
You sayd you will fix it in the new version.

And is posible you can give de admins more rights. So the can change everthing. Because i have to give them administrator rights so the can change everthing. It wold be better if they can change it via the musicbox.

Kind regards,

Dutch_Boy.

I don't get what the first question means, a screenshot may help .

- Artist bio information of course will be able to edit on mainpage later, only time I need to implement it. I'm thinking of get rid of the musicbox admincp itself too.

- I'm not sure it is a good idea to include media in a article. How ever, the content support BBcode so you can insert media into post such as this one I demonstrate.

Guys, check this solution I provide to TeknoSounds on page 12

Hmm, you can try the direct link

./install_dnp_musicbox.php?do=setup_database&confirm=continue3
This step is to setup new columns for features of v1.0.3, v1.0.4 and v1.0.5

Ah watermark. I'll look into that later . Module for vBadvanced is already available but sadly it is not my work. DnP code it for a price

It is available. You can add more than 1 group for the 'admin_groupid_allowed'.

What kind of video is that?, please note that the musicbox uses direct link instead of a direct upload link. This is for safety purpose and reduces the work load for admin greatly..

Check out these settings
SS 1 : instantbox_media_per_line
SS 2 : something wrong with it?
SS 3 : from player_link_color to player_i_like_it_number_color

The BBcode I used was just a simple [flash] tag.

Hey maidos, I know this may happen to some of us that's why I drop in the line, it's pretty much self-explained. Or back on the mainpage

[Note] : For Unix host, please make sure the folder you have uploaded the musicbox content to is CHMOD to 666 or 777 (writable) if you receive a permission error during installation.
