music playlist

Post by Fergg on November 15th 2011, 10:05 am

okay so on a previous forumotion forum i inserted a music playlist from playlist.com but i wanted to have the music keep playing and not restart every time i click a link. I want the music to play constantly uninterrupted in the footer.

Haha yeah. I mean I'm able to deal with it, but I would really like to know. because if your on playlist.com the playlist goes on uninterrupted, so I might check their source code to see if I can find something useful.

Well, put the playlist in the html page and then make it as a popup window bwi
Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
function Popup(url) {
   popupWindow = window.open(
      url,'popUpWindow','height=600,width=800,left=20,top=20,scrollbars=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,menubar=no,status=yes')
}
</script>
<a href="JavaScript:Popup('your html page url');">Playlist</a>

right it will have to be in some sort of pop-out in order to have continuous play.

I have mine on my homepage and when you enter the forum, the forum openings in a different tab. But I'm not sure if you would like to make a whole HTML homepage for your forum. Smile Because lots of browsers block popups, this eliminates the problem. Because normally when people get a popup notice that a popup was blocked, they normally don't enable the popup to come up. Wink (Because of ads and such)

It's not that kind of pop-up.
It's a pop-out window,
when you click on the image or text it will open a window with the music player on it.Then the music will play while you are browsing through the rest of the forum without stopping.

Like look at my tiny chat banner on my live support page, when you click that it opens a pop-out window with the tinychat support room.

So it's just like that , but his window will be smaller and have a music playlist in it Smile

place the mix pod, or whatever you are using on a html page.
Then take that html link and use this over here.

Be sure to adjust all the settings the way you want it,
This is not much different then the code above, only that it may be easier to set the options how you want them.
