Staff review

This is the basic version of the plugin and as the decent readme (in the gen_httppost folder in your plugins folder) indicates it comes with no support.
On testing this worked as expected and worked correctly all of the time.
From the quick play with this, paying (the small sum) for the enhanced version was almost tempting. Nicely put together.


Doesn't work - While the plugin does make a request of the server, no string is sent with the request. At least not with 5.531 - June 27, 2008 by chris nasr

Smashing Plug-in - I'd like to say that this is a wonderfully designed plug-in. It works well and it's easy to use. I had two problems with the plug-in, but they were easily fixed. 1. Upon testing, the script asked for history1.txt, history2.txt, and history3.txt; however, these files were not included in the unpacking of the installation. I just created the files and CHMOD'ed them appropriately. 2. When I played songs with apostrophes in them, the leading "\" was included in the image. I fixed it by adding: $history1 = stripslashes("$history1"); and so on. Not a big issue, but stil it's a minor bug. Overall, this is a wonderful script. Excellent job. - June 28, 2006 by Matthew F

New Version - Hi, posted a bugfix release, now version, which fixes a bug where artist names or track names with & in them were truncated. If you have this issue, please re-download to get the update. If you like this plugin, please rate it, and add comments. Thanks. - May 27, 2006 by Mark Gillespie
