LAST.FM POSTSBIT ENHANCEMENT PRO
This template modification assumes you know at least the basics of last.fm // Version 1.1


You can now also modify the Member's Profile with a cool script, HERE is the Profile Enhancement I have done

Thanks to last.fm for their beautiful and addicting site!

Well this will be my first hack ever, but I think this will be good for any forums that would like to get a unique music side to your forums.

File edits: 0
Template mods: 1
Plugins: 0


Description

This modification will basically let you use all last.fm's cool tools with your vBulletin forums and let each users have their own top charts integrated with every post.

Steps to install

1) First, you will need to create a last.fm account if you don't already have one, you will also need to install a plug-in from the site.

http://www.last.fm/signup.php

2) Now that you have an account and learned a little what it does, you can start coding, first you will need to create a new profile field.

Create a new profile field (in AdminCP)

User Profile Fields --> Add New User Profile Field --> Single-line textbox

Title || Last.fm Username
Description (copy & paste) ||
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Default Value || (don't enter anything)
Max length of allowed user input || 100
Display Size || (what ever, leave it default normally)
Display Order || (whatever you want)
Field Required || No
Field Editable by User || Yes
Private Field || No
Field Searchable on Members List || (yes or no)
Show on Members List || (yes or no)
Options: Edit Profile (usually)


3) Now you have done your user profile field, find the number of that field and remember it or write it down you will need it later on. Here will be the code for the postbits. Open postbit_legacy:


Postbit_legacy

The last.fm enhancements works best for the postbit_legacy, it looks really weird with the normal postbit...

Overall Artists

This is if you want the user's overall artists to appear.




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


Here is other versions:



Just replace the n00b with the name of the style two times, here.

Overall Tracks
Again, this is if the user wants his overall tracks to be displayed.




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


Here is other versions:



Just replace the n00b with the name of the style two times, here.

Here is a list of kind of options that you can decide to put, just replace the quoted text with otracks or oartists and it will give you this:

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

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

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

4) There, now that you have chosen which one you wanted;

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

and ADD BELOW the code you selected in Step 3...

REMEMBER TO REPLACE THE field29 with your field number that you kept in the beginning (the last.fm Username textfield).

That's it!!! You are done, now you have a beautiful chart on everyone of your posts where users can see your favorite artists, recently played tracks and more

Version 1.1
find
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and ADD this BELOW


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

To change the styles, you just need to follow the instructions above..don't forget to change all places where field29 is written with your field number


Features of 1.1:
- Note that this one is using conditionals for people that did not enter a last.fm username so that they wake up
- Can't make it collapsable, you need a file edit for postbit collapsable...
- I have included a .png for it to look nicer (STORE THE IMAGE IN YOUR IMAGES MISC FOLDER)
- The last screenshot is the one yours will look like, it only has your 5 top artists, but you can change that by changing your chart style

Demo: HERE

Please click INSTALL if you have found this useful or used it, it took me long to write this mod & post.

Very usefull addon, no doubt! Thanks a lot for that!

I'm just always wondering how people can use a forum with such a huge postbit; you got to scroll like 30 times the average size of a post to get to the next one

This looks really cool, nice idea, el jefe. (Sorry, just wanted to add a third language to this thread!)

Will this work in memberinfo as well/instead? It'd be too long for my community's postbit, but I do use the myspace PRO extension and this seems like a natural to add in there. Whatcha think?
