Re: WebSearch Panels (updated March 14, 2007) now with installer

This is a brilliant script but I now have 49 sites (buttons) and was wondering if it would be possible to compress them by having parent nodes like
Bio's & Reviews
Video
Covers
Lyrics
Available via the WebPanels button with all the sites listed as sub-nodes under the appropriate node
The reason I would like this is when I hit my WebPanel button the list of sites now goes from the top to the bottom of my screen and it's getting harder and harder to find the most relevant site in the list. Being able to arrange them in sub-nodes with the best sites at the top of each sub-node (a bit like RightClick For Web) would be excellent.
With all the sites now posted here http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=20582 I think tidying them up a little would be a great finishing touch if it's possible. Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers :D

I don't know enough to be able to create the sub-nodes but I did manage to tidy up the lists by creating four WebPanel buttons
Art
Bio's
Clips
Lyrics
Very crude I know but it's the best I can come up with, I just copied the WebPanels .vbs and .xml files to a safe place and created four new ones with the appropriate names and changed the names in the .vbs files to match. It will do for the time being until somebody can create sub-nodes in the WebPanel
Apologies to Gege for making a monster out of his script.
It's OK but takes up a little too much room on my toolbar (I only use one) so I had to get rid of the categorise toolbar I tried to limit the size on the toolbar which is why I chose the names I did, ie Art instead of Cover Art and chose the word Clips instead of Video because I wanted the four grouped together on the toolbar with my WebLookup button following after. Using Video placed the button after the WebLookup button. I would really like to get rid of some of the buttons on the standard toolbar that I don't use, have to search the forums when I get time and see if it can be done.
Cheers :D :D :D

Hi, I know absolutely nothing about scripting. I read the introduction page to scripting but I am still really confused. I want to be able to use this program with allmusic. I saw where someone had written a script but for the life of me I don't know where to put it, and do I just save the script in a .txt document?

Sorry, I'm so lost with this kind of stuff.

thanks, hannah

No Hannah just have MM running and click on the .mmip installer file. Two files will be installed in the MM program files/scripts/auto folder, one (webpanels.vbs) which is the guts of the script (tells MM what to do basically) the other contains the addresses the webpanels will open up and go to. The panels can be dragged to the sides or top of MM and resized, you open them via a button on the toolbar which will be there when you re-start MM after installing the script. Not sure which toolbar though, sorry you might have to go to view/toolbars and select till you see it. Be careful not to open too many panels in one session though if you can help it, even though you close the panel the internal browser still refreshes on track change and can cause things to slow a bit if too many are opened. (Quite a few tho). Restarting MM will restore some order if you happen to do that and it becomes a problem.
Cheers :D :D :D

Edit, You should be able to download the installer here http://code.google.com/p/mm-scripts/downloads/list
And the previous couple of pages (just about all actually) contain additional site info that can be edited into the .xml file (right click open with textpad) just space them out as you can see the original ones are done. If you don't like any of them just delete them from the .xml file and re-start MM.
Site has MM 2 and 3 versions.

Has anyone developed a Discogs search?

Code: Select all

<site> 
    <name>Discogs</name> 
    <caption>Discogs</caption> 
    <description>Search Discogs Artist</description> 
    <start>http://www.discogs.com/</start> 
    <url>http://www.discogs.com/search?type=artists&q="%artist%"&btn=Search</url> 
  </site>
Some sites can only be searched for Artist or Title (Album or Track) and you will have to click the link for the album you want, some others can be searched for both artist and title (and obviously going straight to the page you most likely are after). This is one site you will have to put up with clicking the link to get to the page you want.

Hi,
Amazon just launched a wiki like website for music called soundunwound.com. I was wondering if anyone could make a script so this page can be added to the websearh panels?

    <url>http://www.soundunwound.com/sp/search/find?searchPhrase=%artist%&Search.x=0&Search.y=0</url> 
  </site>
For Artist/Album use

Code: Select all

<site> 
    <name>SoundUnwoundAlbum</name>
    <caption>SoundUnwound Album</caption> 
    <description>Search current Album in SoundUnwound</description> 
    <start>http://www.soundunwound.com</start> 
    <url>http://www.soundunwound.com/sp/search/find?searchPhrase=%artist% - %album%&Search.x=0&Search.y=0</url> 
  </site>
For Artist/Title (track title)

Code: Select all

<site> 
    <name>SoundUnwoundTitle</name>
    <caption>SoundUnwound Title</caption> 
    <description>Search current Title in SoundUnwound</description> 
    <start>http://www.soundunwound.com</start> 
    <url>http://www.soundunwound.com/sp/search/find?searchPhrase=%artist% - %title%&Search.x=0&Search.y=0</url> 
  </site>

Hey

sorry but but may be I missed the point if it is possible to automatically integrate websearch info into tags.

I read something about copy&paste for lyrics info but I am interested in cover art. I found mostly I looked for by MSN live cover art webearch panel...

Great!

But how do I got the pictures into my tags? tried d'n'drop but didn't work :)

cheers

If only that this at last fixed my issue with MonkeyRok always prompting for authorization! :) Thanks.

Finally something to rival songbird's lyrics!!!

Post by charlyg »

Thanks!!! finally could dump that minilyrics stuff and can get simply lyrics as in Songbird, but in MM. And lyricsplugin.com have LOTS of lyrics. I don't really needed them to roll up for karaoke, just to read them. THANKS!!!
