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

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.

  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

I am having an issue. My add media button isn't displaying. It looks like it is outputting a "0" instead of the button. Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

I think you have downloaded v1.0.4 in about 5mins before I added v1.0.5. Might you download the newer version. The 0 there just indicates there is no category yet. In v1.0.5 it has a better notice.

Few suggestions/requests on next update:

1/ Under the category drop down menu (when add song), can we add a spacer/line between each of category?

2/ Can we have a popup notice or something that alert admin there are new pending media that needs approval? Like showing the number of new media next to "View unapproved link report". And this could be done also for the broken link report???

3/ Can we allow user to add album title instead admin? (like allow user to add singer name, bio, and other...)

Question:
when I click on View unapproved link report, nothing shown up???? Since I am doing the testing, then I know which media is new submit, so I clicked on that media in order to approve or deny. If users submitted, I am for sure, I will not have a clue or time to go through to check which one are pending....
Edit: found this under quick list box.

Would be nice if there is the number of new media shows next to the View unapproved link, and once click on that number, it will display all the new pending media. On top of that, it's also nice if we have the approve or deny button without viewing media.

Also, want to confirm that this media box also plays Youtube playlist, all you do is just change "v" to "p" in the coding. However, please create an icon for YouTube playlist. For some reason, the no info image did not display for Youtube playlist on the instant box top new media.

Also, will there be an option for mass prune media with selection? I believe right now, we have to delete media one by one. And you have to view the media in order to edit or delete.

Add an artist feature for user: not working. when clicked on it, only ajax box flew in and said done????
Edit: found it way below of submit box.

On the Editing media section, can we still have the add an artist and add an album feature? Let's say, user submit with incorrect artist, and when doing the editing (admin), there is no option to add the new (correct) artist... and no option in editing media to submit artist photo.

Thanks alot for the support! What I said above just means if you would want your own musicbox to be in the Demo section

I'll see what can be done, it must look good before it can be implemented.


2/ Can we have a popup notice or something that alert admin there are new pending media that needs approval? Like showing the number of new media next to "View unapproved link report". And this could be done also for the broken link report???

This is what I concern about earlier. It possibly has a hit on performance, some host cannot process too many requests and I try to optimize the speed to the most. But I may add an option to switch it on/off in later version. Admin must see the media before it can be approved. There is also new function to one click approve all later.

3/ Can we allow user to add album title instead admin? (like allow user to add singer name, bio, and other...)

Also, will there be an option for mass prune media with selection? I believe right now, we have to delete media one by one. And you have to view the media in order to edit or delete.

They are on To-Do list already

Also, want to confirm that this media box also plays Youtube playlist, all you do is just change "v" to "p" in the coding. However, please create an icon for YouTube playlist. For some reason, the no info image did not display for Youtube playlist on the instant box top new media.
Playlist does not have any thumbnail, simply use custom thumbnail instead.

Same way that you post new media, only the Type is article. Everything is pretty simple

Hang on to this skol, newly developed playlist feature is on its way with the opportunity for members to share their own playlist on mainpage.

I'll install this later today. I just install that last version. No biggie. I'm running this with the vbtube mod. Now I'm starting to think I should have waited longer before I purchased that.

Silvery, about my #2 above, if it relates to the query, then can it be at least display on a different color so that admin know there are pending media for approval. Or better yet, just a popup box (like popup PM box) to alert the admin about the pending links....

Ah cool. Hey since you are using vBtube might you want to tell me some good features that I should implement to the musicbox?

Maybe this what you want?

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

Went into the file to make sure all the tables were there and it appeared so, so entered the direct link and setup appears to have completed.
On to configuring
Thanks!
