Solved Background music not playing when in Guest view.

Post by Guest on January 9th 2015, 8:02 am

Hello again! Smile

I've got some background music installed on my http://www.game-xtreme.com , which is a phpBB3 board. It's playing hidden in guest view only, made in a custom widget for that. Here's the code:


Code:
<div id="ForumIntroMusic_by_Samantha" style="width:1px;height:1px;overflow:hidden;">

    <object style="width: 300px; height: 300px;"><param
id="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed style="width:
300px; height: 300px;"
src="http://www.youtube.com/v/IboXhKsDVik?autoplay=1&loop=0"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always"
/></object>
</div>

I'm wondering why this code isn't working on my other phpBB3 board: http://fcnl.actieforum.com . I mean, I'm using the same configuration, right?

By the way, the new code I'm trying to use is slightly different and only refers to another YT song:

Code:
<div id="ForumIntroMusic_by_Samantha" style="width:1px;height:1px;overflow:hidden;">

    <object style="width: 300px; height: 300px;"><param
id="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed style="width:
300px; height: 300px;"
src="http://www.youtube.com/v/oR-29kYl_a0?autoplay=1&loop=0"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always"
/></object>
</div>

And I want to keep those widgets out of view, like on http://www.game-xtreme.com .

Could someone please help me with that?


Many thanks in advance.

Samantha.

Hello @SamanthaS,

Try this :
Code:
<div style="height:0;width:0;overflow:hidden;">
  <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/oR-29kYl_a0?autoplay=1&loop=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always"/>
</div>

It played just a couple of notes and then it stopped Shocked  I don't know if you hear anything when you link up, but just to make sure I'm gonna restart my laptop meanwhile. I'll be back shortly...

EDIT: Nope, still nada....

Oh, you have that in the right column correct ? If so, remove the following from your stylesheet.
Code:
#right { display:none }

Since the parent is hidden, the child content, being the embedded element, wont play. It's like when you try to execute the click event on an element that's hidden; it wont work, because you can't click what you can't see.

But then the right widget column appears. I don't want that. I've got Dions Recent Topics installed and I don't want to use the 180 px. on the right for non-visible widgets. Do you know a solution? I don't want any widget bars eating away the forum.

Set the width to 0 ?
Code:
#right { width:0 }

It looks like you already took care of the margin and floats on the content.

Yep! Perfect this time! Can you hear it too? So I can use my original coding too then?

Thanks!

Yeah, I can hear it. Your original should work, I didn't notice you had the right column hidden at first.
