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

Great! Thanks for the test. You can delete the install_dnp_musicbox.php now.

That part of code is just a simple check to see if the tables already exist in the database or not. It does not affect the installation or the musicbox/forum themselves

Silveryhat,

1/ why don't I see this feature on 1.0.6

When I tried to edit the media, the edit screen looks the same as last version

Edit: saw this option under "Artist Info Editor" .

2/ where in configuration I need to make change in order to have this?


Edit: In order for one to see the above screenshot, one must click on this icon


3/ I saw on the configuration, you have option for custom block. My question is how am I going to add custom link to that custom block?

4/ I had set "player_window_video_audio_autostart" to Yes but audio/video still did not auto play.

5/ I and other really appreciated that you have a quick admincp for us without login control panel to do editing. However, if you can think of a way that more friendly user for us, it would be much more helpful. By saying that, I mean, right now, there are more than 30 configurations and you have to scroll up and down to find what you did changed and they are not in alphabetical order. So my suggestion for next update are (if possible and do whatever best for you)

a. Sort the configuration in alphabetical order
b. Drop down menu?
c. Change color on which configuration that user made change and option to reverse back to original stage

6/ Is it possible to remove the media once it reported as broken? Or at least make it invisible to users beside admin and moderator group? Right now, user reported a broken link and the media is still show on the list.

7/ What will happen to user (not guest) when they performed a fast repeating searching process and received error message "Going to Restrict 1 out of 4)? Let's just say someone does hit 4 out of 4???

Hmm quick list is just a small list of media for quick view. There 3-column List to handle the sorting and instant! box for pages. There should not be so many elements that do similar job, only to confuse the visitors.

The usergroup feature might be a great idea.

This issue has been addressed. If you need quick fix before the next patch you can request on Bug Report & Patches

3/ Custom block content accepts plain HTML.

4/Please note that the Flash player does take use of these settings

5/Talking about friendly configuration, just back 3 weeks ago we didn't have that menu only plain setting file to be edited by notepad and reuploaded to server for changes ^^. Just wait to see the improvement because time is the only matter.

6/There is case that media is reported as broken but it is not broken, and showing it with Undo broken report is enabled allows other users to mark it working, that will reduce the work for Admin.

7/The session is completely blocked from access unless user must close down the browser and starts a new one. Settings for this can be changed in Configurations

*edit : 2/ you can turn it on by default using autoload_overview

Errors everywhere until I edited the DnPMusicbox_Settingsnew.php. Would have been nice to mention the need to edit the path in this file in the instructions?

Jury's still out on this one until the testing is complete......

You are not supposed to edit that file. It is accessed by the installer only and the folder you have uploaded the musicbox should be CHMOD to 777. Also be more specific of what errors everywhere they were.

Here's the error I get after I created some category's and such:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: ctype_digit() in /home/XXXXXXXXXX/www/rippersplace.com/forum/musicajax.php on line 1787
This came after the 5th install attempt. Everything said the install went fine. I even clicked the navbar link and the message said it went good and to go to the acp and start creating category's but still it's down to this error. Most were removed after the 4th attempt.

Too much time............................................................................ .................

This is clearly a client configuration issue. As if you search for it, ctype_digit is a default function for PHP > 4 from its offcial homepage at http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.ctype-digit.php . Your error even says that this function is not found then some setting on your host configuration has restricted it. ctype_digit is function to valid if a requested ID is numerical value. It is for safety purpose, to sanitize the data being sent.

Too bad. I have full access with no restrictions. Host is a business account and has everything wide open. Over 100 domains for the business. That's why we pay them the big bucks. Other mods installed have similar functions and work fine.

Were done,

The size of the host does not matter. What should be concerned here is the php configuration being made. You can have a host such as geocities before which thousand of users and domains but no php because it is being limited by the server settings. Full access is different from full control. You can do the <? phpinfo(); ?> to see what function being disabled.



Did you know about placing a php.ini file and use htaccess to enable certain php function that are not turned on by default ?

Depend on what browser you are using. To play mp3 on the surfing we can either use QuickTime or Windows Media plugin. I have seen plenty of people have QuickTime to handle the job because they install iTunes. You can use this plugin if you are using Firefox http://port25.technet.com/videos/dow...efoxplugin.exe
