Welcome ,

This is the SEO friendly and AJAX powered musicbox by DnP Network™, it is coded by Silvery Hat in the late 2008 and early 2009. The original version was used way back in the '06 or '07 with limited functions and no ajax support. An upgrade and modification have been made few weeks ago for this release, main goal was to make it faster and compatible with all vBulletin forums. Recently there are requests from users who want to buy this code for a good price but then, I would release it for free to the public .

Compatible vBulletin 3.6.x and earlier
For vBulletin 3.7.x and later : Click here

However, please be aware : For every Modification, there might be 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 to help me improve it for every coming version. Bug reports, Ideas, Feedbacks are truly welcomed.


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 the installation steps!

Now you could go to AdminCP > DnP Musicbox Options to add new categories, artists (optional), and albums (optional).

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!

[Optional] Use the Configuration Editor from Musicbox Homepage > Admin Quick Panel to customize the your personal musicbox !

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.

HOW-TO & F.A.Q

1 - Add musicbox link to navigation bar. Wut to do!?


Edit your style template
AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Your Style template to edit > Navigation / Breadcrumb Templates > navbar.

FIND :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

ADD BEFORE THAT :

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change the word Instant! Musicbox to anything you'd like. Save the change.

2 - I make a category in AdminCP. When I post a song I see no category appears in the list OMG!!
Category Level 1 is considered as Parent Category therefore it cannot be used. Create a sub-category under it and you are set. Currently it only supports 2 Levels of Category.

3 - Hey how I post youtube video clip?
On the Post page there are four small buttons next to the URL box, with the icons of Youtube, Metacafe,Dailymotion and Googlevideo. If a youtube link looks like this
The bold part is the only part you need to copy, and then click the Youtube button to paste the link in the box. The you choose Flash for the File type and Set!




4 - Can my members add artist ? or Album ?
No.

Why?!
Imagine how a mess it would become if one member adds "Lady Gaga" , then another adds "ladyGaga" and his friend who also plays the forum does "Gaga lady", but a random member does not like those names and wants to do "Gaga my luv" for himself while a noob dont know wat and dont know how where he accidentally creates "Lazy haha" into the list.. The same reason applies for Album records therefore only Admin can create the artist and album. It might be a hard work but you want your musicbox looks good with working portraits and correct information.

5 - silveryhat I cannot edit any song I post, a no permission page appears, are they gonna be perpetual that way now ( ?
OK.
dat wasnt the answer!
^^ you have not fully explored the configuration file. Go ahead and disable this part

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


6 - I mean no harm but. WTH should I look if I want to delete/edit a song ?
Definitely not in H , take a peek



Please note, the two buttons there, Edit only shows to poster of the song OR administrator. Delete button appears for Admin only.

Security code. If this text is shown instead of an image please contact the administrator as soon as possible.
I cannot submit a song, what am I overlooking?

Edit: Uninstalled until I see a bit more effort, this has great potential but needs a bit more attention to detail imo to make it great.
