  • Make sure that you've installed Vanilla Forums in the root directory. If still does not work then check that the URL you use should end with '.mp3'. Not working? send me the link of your forum. It will good for me to understand the problem.

    I think Anonymoose meant this as a compliment to both vanilla and your plugin.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • oh really :)

  • just an idea - you may or may not want to do this - but couldn't you just use html5 audio tag as an option in the setup to play the mp3 and dispense with the flashplayer.

    10x a lot;vanilla isn't installed in root directory. i just fix the urls in class.profilesong.plugin.php , now it's working properly!

  • Glad you got it working :)

    The audio tag has some problem with the Firefox browser, that's why i included the player separately which will work in all browsers.

    @JunaidPkn why not use some of the core function like Url and Anchor? you shouldn't really expect people to change a hard coded url, or for it to be in root directory.

    Also don't use &$Sender objects in php are already passed by reference. It will likely break in 2.1 Use $Sender instead.

    grep is your friend.

  • @x00 actually i am new to Vanilla Development, and do not have a deeper knowledge of core functions. Thanks for your suggestion. I'll improve the code in the next version.

  • No worries.

    grep is your friend.

  • So what did you do to fix it exactly? As in what lines did you change and what to?
