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.
(..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)

  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

Could we have a REQUESTS section added in, so members can contact admin/mods to manually add preferred tracks to the genre of their choice.

I have taken the use of the built-in Contact form of vBulletin instead of coding another Request section. Such as shown in this screenshot



However, i'd take note of your idea and if the demand raised there is a chance it would be implemented. At the moment, the Moderating new song feature is being developed at the highest priority because next update is coming shortly.

Also

members cannot add music files etc.
It depends on your configuration . They cannot upload to your server but they can add song/video clip that URL is from another host.

I get some of the things you have done... but as an admin, how do I edit the songs members have posted, or delete them, so that I can set up the sub cats? When I try, I get the "do not have permission...." message. Do I have to com pletely uninstall and reinstall to start over?

Yes, I did this..check_user_location_when_post_edit_song

On further thought I think this is just too hands on for me to use. I have hundreds and hundreds of members who all like music of different kinds and this is just too poorly organized and implimented at this time for me to use it.

THis error pops up every time I try to enter a category.

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

The categories are all together, not nested like they show on the page, so unless you only have three or four genres and intend to never change them, its very hard to keep track.

The admin either has ALL control or almost no control over input. There is no way to alter or edit what members input. If a member wants to add a new artist they discovered, they have to ask me or the other admin to input all the information, way to time intensive on a forum that is busy.

This would however be good for a forum that is about a specific artist or genre... and of course if the admin has all the time on earth to copy and paste code from one place to another for hours on end.

Very nice work. I will keep a close eye on this one. For now I would love to see you have it know the difference between songs and videos. eg. it gives the user a link like this: .com/song362 but it is for a video and not a song.

another example: you have it called music.php but this is now more then just music. maybe rename it media.php or something.

Those songs you have posted but not working, the Patch 3 download will give you more helpful hint to edit.

The first start is the hardest. If everything doesn't require much work, the great success it brings has no fulfill values.

THis error pops up every time I try to enter a category.

I'll take a deeper look into this. Thanks!

The admin either has ALL control or almost no control over input. There is no way to alter or edit what members input. If a member wants to add a new artist they discovered, they have to ask me or the other admin to input all the information, way to time intensive on a forum that is busy.
Admin has FULL control over those songs anyone posts. Admin can delete / edit them anyway he/she wants. Play a song and at the bottom of it there are two buttons that you may find. Refer to F.A.Q question 6th.
About the ability for member to add artist
._. sorry for this part I'd just copy from the F.A.Q


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.
However, add the musicbox grows, I don't see any reason not to make it better. I'll note the idea as well.

Erm I see no excuse to charge someone to install a beta mod. It's way easy with only 3 steps, why don't you give it a try? I can help you install it but you need to PM me your host info, ftp server and forum admin password. It is complicated and these information are too personal to share.

hey the new file name is cool, i thought of it too but i had to choose a super simple name...
For .com/song362 it is a short url that i use (this setting is optional in the configuration). I'm adding the new url rewrite feature that's pretty much similar to what you say (spoileeeeeeer : /video-Show-off-fails , /music-bad-day , etc..
