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.

Do you mean downloading music from something like an iTunes store? NO.

This musicbox is empty, admin would be the one who submits songs/clips to the database for forum members to enjoy..They can download what was submitted.

I see there is an option for the users to upload music, can it be set to moderated so whatever they upload does not appear until approved?

No they cannot upload any file directly to your server. In fact, I have removed that feature in this version because, I know it's not ready to pass the security matter yet. They can link to the file except php,asp,js are not allowed by default.

I'd take your idea into 2 parts and add it to the core later
+ Moderated songs
+ More restricted file extensions.

Thanks.

OK I really wanted to try it and I installed it. It doesnt work for me. Members cant input artists, when I click links that members put in, they dont work. I tried messing with the permissions and settings but I just keep getting database errors.

I get database errors when I make a new category also. The categories dont work, they arent links, just text...

Arg I knew I forgot something when i brought this topic over here from 3.6 section, THE F.A.Q part ._. , so here it is. Take a look at question 2 then 4 :]

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 code into the box. Then 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.

Hey man, glad to see you post this in the 3.7 thread..

FYI most 3.8 users will not check the 3.7 thread... either one they are just members and not sure if mods will work w/ 3.8 if listed in the 3.7 thread despite your title and initial statement they might not even look in the sub-forum etc so best bet is to post this in the 3.8 forum as well, you'll get more feedback and installs plus possibly more responses to help you out if they find a bug here or there.

I installed this mod and played around with it now for a few hours. What instructions were included were good. However, there seems to be ALOT of instruction missing. Don't get me wrong I realize the mod is still in it's beta stage.

I have several questions that I will ask later, but I would like to know now why the mod does not recognize me as an admin when logged into it on my board? There is nowhere for me to administrate the mod outside of the admincp. How do you delete uploads that you may want removed?

Haha thanks for the tip. I thought of doing that too but I hesitated because that maybe considered as spamming the forum. I'll post it later when I have time ^^'

I'm building up the F.A.Q part above daily so one day it could be enough information to redo as an instruction. The reason there isn't one yet is because I'm lazy $_$ , I can code for a long time but typing article is really not my type.

Anyway about the level control you tackle about, by default the musicbox only considers groupid 6 as the administrator. I'd add an option to define other Admin groups in next release. Also to delete or edit a song, take a look at screenshot number 4 on the first post where it shows picture of lady gaga. Next to the share link at the bottom of the player are two buttons that say Delete and Edit which they only appears to poster of the song and admin.

Let's try it this way.

Go to my page http://www.psychobike.com/forums/music.php you will notice I only have one working song. How do I remove the non working songs listed?
