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)

  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

Silvery,
On instantbox_media_per_line , I have set it to 4... however, isn't that for media? I am having problem with Random Artist list, not Random Media.

I want the Random Artist to be like your that was why I took 2 screenshot, one from my board and one from your. Again, my random artist is not showing 4 in a row....


Edit: Fixed it. The below 2 setting have to have same number.
» random_artist_withpix_on_main_limit
» random_artist_withpix_on_main_perline

I finally got a DB error via email from when I was trying to install:

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

Also, does this mod keep track of download stats? If I could combine this mod & DownloadsII it would be absolute perfection.
Is there an AdminCP window for Media Manager? If not, I would like to suggest it for future versions

whoohoo thanks, TeknoSounds, that's pretty helpful.

I thought it was an overflow in step 3 but all of these are just in step 2.
This new installer should make the process smoother.

I'll would add the download stats when new url process feature is completed. maido, too, has suggested me to integrate the musicbox with downloadsII and I put it down on the wish list.

Hey silveryhat,

"Additional UserGroups" doesn't work. I made a group with the name Musicbox Admins ID=6.

Added the musicbox admin (admin_groupid_allowed ) setting to 6, 60 and it still doesn't work. I made a test account to check if it works. Added him to the Musicbox Admin group. So i think i did everthing good.

It's this button, you can't miss it


Please make sure you upload the content of upload folder in the package under your forum root. Note http://127.0.0.1 is the local address, where do you read this from?
Also verify that DnPMusicbox_Settings.php exists on the same forum root folder too

I never know about it before but, like I said we can literally embed any clip of any online video sharing service

Original url :

http://en.sevenload.com/videos/Wq8bnej-Michael-Jackson-MTV-Music-Video-Awards-1995
Direct link for embedding :

http://static.sevenload.com/swf/player/player.swf?configPath=http://flash.sevenload.com/player?itemId=Wq8bnej

Let me help you put everything in the right order.

Back up to post 198 there is an attachment for user who has minor/haning problem of installing the database. You can get this file and follow this instruction :
1-Upload the attachment you just download to the forum_root

2-Make sure the folder you upload musicbox into has CHMOD as 777 if you are using UNIX host.

3-Run installation again. This time it should be smooth
