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

Hello,
I would like to say you created one AWESOME MOD For VB! The Installation was Very Easy! This product is very well put together and thought out. Although the following bugs and needs are apparent they in NO WAY Diminish the Luster of this Great Mod!

I would like to point out a few things I did run across while using this great product.
#1 - We Need a More In Depth Admin Changing Capability to change all the configs on this mod without having to physically edit the DNP Configuration File. Never Mind Changed Admin to Usergrp 5 for SuperMods, Since I am The Only Admin and I never Log In As Admin. WooHoo!
#2 Would Love to see an Option to Let Users Add An Album too.
#3 For Some reason I did have to edit the Config File and Put My Site URL in the top spots, using the ip addy in first spot made users go to a new opened tab/page.
#4 The Size of the People Posters on Side Column Bottom are Way Too Small!
#5 When Clicking on a Poster on Side Column Bottom and error comes up (The requested URL /192 was not found on this server.) not the correct path used for a persons profile, although on the songs clicking on the poster name goes to their page.
#6 Experiencing issues changing media data from admincp, adding a pic/poster works, although it does not show up in admicp, changing from audio to flash makes no difference, and unable to delete the media (Just goes to a blank screen) Now of course if you are the user and edit the media from within music.php everything is fine, also you can change any media you wanted to delete to some other media you do want to keep.
#7 Would Like to See Playlist in A Fixed Sized Box With Scroll Bar On Side for those of us that have expanded the Playlist from 10 to like 50.
#8 Would Like To See A Few More Features To Also Make This A Movie DB MOD as Well, Like Add In Actor/Actress. Multiple Embedded Videos on One Page for a Movie to be Embedded.
#9 Maybe The ability To Select Multiple Artists or Actors for A Collaborated effort.
#10 Would Love Capability to Choose What Forums New Topics can ignore or have it check permissions, since I do have an adult forum and dont really need to see those titles displayed in a public area.

Great Mod again Keep Up the Great Work! WooHoo!

Great Mod again Keep Up the Great Work! WooHoo!
I replied to you on the official homepage but I guess i'll post another here in case others have the same concerns


Thanks for the feedback. Let's see what I can help

1 - What do you mean physically edit the DnP Configuration file ?

2 - It's coming in future version

3 - Yes of course, the default ip is the localhost ip address. base_link is the must change setting for every musicbox.

4 & 5 & 7 - These have been taken care of

6 - This plugin is from TeknoSounds , I found a way for you to contact him

8 - I'm thinking of a media related playlist. Not a user's playlist but a preset playlist of all media that are related to each other.

9 - This option has to be omitted because every artist requires one query and a long list of artists will tremendously slow down the whole server.

10 - It is known that there is a more advanced new thread plugin being developed. You can see that example on the homepage of dnp network. It is running by the same ajax core system like musicbox.

I have seen many popular sites that shows 3 Ad units and 2 Link units of AdSense for Content on a page.

If you are not sure, you may just include the following 3 ad units:
  • Vertical Ads (Side columns)
  • Leaderboard Ads (Center)
  • Square Ads (Inside player)
because these are the main ad units.

thanks.

Try to verify again Mike, because when the permission error appears, there is only 1 reason that the file cannot be written.

If you have any trouble with that let me know or contact DnP directly on the official forum.

This error simply means the file cannot be found. Verify your FLV link to make sure it is directly accessible.

Verify your base_link setting first, since I cannot access your forum at the moment Mike. How does the link look like anyway ?

Silvery,
Is it ok for me to ask about the plugin here?

On the music box on the forum home, do I have the option to display it on top or bottom?

Thanks for the feed back on my last post, your were correct about the link.

Another question is that most of my vids are on photobucket and when i use the direct link nothing happens again.

Link is: http://s23.photobucket.com/albums/b3...2-00-02-56.flv

What part do i use, or am i missing something altogether.

Thanks again for any help.
