Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

Is there some kind of trick to get the forms to work with the bsl_audioscrobbler plugin? Because they are definitely not working for me and just returning the default notworkingmessage/notlisteningmessage.

Is one audioscrobbler plugin better than the other? I’m confused as to why you are still keeping up with two plugins that sound like they do the same thing.

Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

Paul,

If you’re having problems with the rmc_audioscrobbler plugin, here’s why: I uploaded the file before I’d actually finished updateing it completely, please download and install it again (it’s what happens at 3am after a beer or two). Also, I’m a bit confused on which plugin you’re using in one post you seem to be using one plugin and in the next the other. I’ve doublechecked the bsl_audioscrobbler plugin and everything seems alright.

I wasn’t really planning on maintaining bsl_audioscrobbler, but as I’d made a mistake documenting a tag and the modification was only adding 4 lines of code I updated it as well.
rmc_audioscrobbler is the better of the two, even though the CD covers don’t always correspond to the song that was played, at least it shows some kind of image. Apart from that, rmc_audioscrobbler code is a bit cleaner and it’s easier to add features to cleaner code ;)

Great! I’ve switched over to rmc_audioscrobbler.

But why keep maintaining the other plugin if it isn’t as good?

Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

The rmc_audioscrobbler doesn’t work with PHP 5, correct?

RSL:

No it doesn’t. However, if you’re hosted at textdrive you can switch to PHP4 by adding this to your .htaccess file:

AddType application/x-httpd-fastphp4 .php
bq. Action application/x-httpd-fastphp4 /php-fastcgi/php4-fcgi

Paul:

I hope you’re not complaining about me maintaining 2 versions? :p
As I said before: I wasn’t really planning on maintaining bsl_audioscrobbler, but as I’d made a mistake documenting a tag and the modification was only adding 4 lines of code, I went and updated bsl_audioscrobbler as well.

Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

I just found it confusing that you had two and they had both been recently updated. Maybe you could specify a little more clear the rmc_audioscrobbler is the newer and better? way to go.

Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

hmm i’m a bit confused since there is no AWS anymore, which of these do I download to run with RMC?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html/ref=sc_fe_l_0/104-5103881-5378363?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=3434641&no=3435361&me=A36L942TSJ2AJA

and then is the procedure the same? I’m installing this for the first time so..

thanks in advance

Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

You can still download it from this page (direct link)

I have not updated the plugin yet to support the new Amazon web services. I’ll be doing that when I have some free time on my hands.

Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

ok i’ve got it installed as far as I can ascertain but caching is being done – so I gather this needs to be dne for anything to be displayed?

Here’s my site: http://hatfullofsky.com and in the sidebar is the listening block

Now my install is:

root/subfolder/textpattern

and the forms I’m using are as follows:

<code>
<txp:rmc_audioscrobbler limit=“5” username=“USERNAME” form=“audioscrobbler” cachepath=”../as_cache” defaultimage=”/images/no-cover.gif” />
<txp:album_img_small /><br />
<txp:album /><br />
<txp:title /><br />
</code>

based on my install path, would the above be correct or incorrect?

thanks

EDIT: I finally got this working! A very nice plugin, thank you!

My only problem now is that the link option neither links to amazon nor to audioscrobbler – how can I resolve this?

Thanks again – very nice plugin

Re: [archived] bsl_audioscrobbler

Ruairi
Thanks for the excellent plugin.

I have it running on successfully on my site, but with the following PHP Notice message at the top of the screen, (repeated three times):
[code]Notice: Undefined index: albumlist_album_title in /././././textpattern/lib/txplib_misc.php(429) : eval()’d code on line 67[/code]

Any ideas what this is about?

On a slightly differnt note:
I am trying to figure out a way to call my “presently playing” track into my blog entries as a footnote to each one. I want to be able to display something along the lines of
[quote]When typing this entry, I was listening to <txp:author> <txp:title /> <txp:album />[/quote]

The tricky point is that I want this footnote to stay that way permanently so that I can look back in a year and re-read threads and see what I was listening to then. Simply put, is there a way to prevent the plugin from updating if I use it in an entry, and would I be able to use multiple instances of it, without any others already entered being updated?

Any other suggestions (besides copy and paste) would be appreciated.
Thanks again.
