I'm having some trouble. The XML file is the stock one with all the panels, yet I see no panels, and don't see a way of enabling them.

I've uninstalled and re-installed the script, but no change. Does it hide something in an .ini somewhere?

just a thought

Postby aidan_cage » Wed Aug 22, 2007 2:17 pm

it would be great if I could double click the docked window to have the info page come up full screen for easy reading, then similarly double click to resume docked position

maybe a key combo could accomplish this effect?
my layout doesn't provide much room to read unless I alter everything only to change it back

let me know if I'm loco

PEACE

Hi,

@fizzjob - Have you and did you click on the "Search the Web" drop-down on the toolbar?

@aidan_cage - 1. I do suppose it could be programmed to do so, but wouldn't be consistent with everything else IMO -- double-clicking on a floating one yes. 2. Double-clicking on the title area of a floating one does re-dock it though.

Well, I'll be darned, I didn't notice that.

Thanks!

I really wish I could get the allmusic.com code to work
I don't really understand
I added the code to the XML file
restarted MediaMonkey and got an error about line 490 something column eight
if anyone can lend me a hand or word
or whip up an XML with the code inserted, or if I have to alter the VBS file
I just don't know
I am flicking excited to get to allmusic through MediaMonkey though!

and I tried the drag out and expand option for the docked window
it is fine, but not the instantaneous I would like, I am not complaining!
I'd really just like to be able to get comments on the albums I have from allmusic
thanks again for the great script!

Hi,

It's possibly an xml issue (you don't give much detail), but my allmusic code is;

Code: Select all
   <site>
         <name>allmusic</name>
         <caption>allmusic.com</caption>
         <description>allmusic</description>
         <start>http://www.allmusic.com/</start>
         <url>http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&amp;sql=1:%artist%</url>
   </site>


Regarding the "Search the Web"; short of having a flashing button on first run, it might be better labelled "Web Panels".

Thank you
that works, for some reason
I just pasted it into the XML in the right syntax and it works
I'd like to be able to search by album on allmusic, is it as simple as changing one word?
I figured out the docking of the panels so that when I open one, it opens in the right place at the right size, and I have to say
wow
this is incredible
exactly what I always wanted and always felt I needed
thanks

Hi,

Not quite, methinks you should try this additional block;

Code: Select all
   <site>
         <name>allmusic_alb</name>
         <caption>allmusic.com:Album</caption>
         <description>allmusic</description>
         <start>http://www.allmusic.com/</start>
         <url>http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&amp;sql=2:%album%</url>
   </site>

And best of all: It works on MM3 :D :D :D

I suggest you add [MM2+3] to the subject of this thread. (And may be allmusic.com should be added to the downloadable version?)

Is there a way to embed MiniLyrics with this script?

The only problem is the script author is not very active at the forums at the moment. His last post was May 22, 2007....

My problem now is that I have far too much I want to display on my small (1024x768) laptop screen.

So what I want is to "undock" some of the panels (allmusic /Google/last.fm) to be separately floating windows. But they must still automatically display what is played in MM. Similar to iTunes, where the player/library and the Music Store can be viewed in separate windows.

Is that possible?

they seem to dock easily, and not move to the back when not active

?

Yes, when undocked they stay on top of the MM window and they dock as soon as I touch them.

I want them to behave as normal windows, where I can maximize/minimize separately and select which one to view.
