Hey all-
I was wondering if you guys would be interested in a "Now Playing" (what you're currently listening to on CD, MP3 or whatever) field in the new topic and reply forms here at the forums? I think it might be a good idea if you guys are interested, as I believe there is a pretty simple mod for phpbb that will do that. I'll be more than happy to do it for us if there's some interest. What do you think? 8)

not a bad idea, as sometimes what I'm listening to just suits my mood and so my post :lol:

Excellent idea indeed :) :) :)
Maybe it's better for you, mankind, not to know what's going on!

whenever you post in a thread, or even post a new thread you have an extra option to let the others know what you're listening to when posting.It'll appear in your post....

for example check this forum/topic:

http://www.ultimatemetal.com/forum/show ... p?t=153416

look for a little CD icon,that means "now playing".

hope I was clear. :wink:

I found the "now playing" mod last night, but I'm not entirely certain it's going to work because of the version of phpbb we're using. Hopefully it will though as I'm going to get started on it tonight. Thanks for the input. 8)

Good news on our "now playing" addition... I've been playing around with the files this morning and even though the mod seems to be for an earlier version of phpbb it looks like it should work just fine. I just need to get the database modified sometime tomorrow and we should be all set. Of course, there's always something that goes wrong so we'll see what it is this time. ;)

Good news! As you can see I got the "Now Playing" modification to the forums up and running. I had a couple of database problems for a minute or two, but it looks like everything is working as of now! :)

Enjoy and please let me know if you see any glitches or bugs as a result of this modification; thanks! 8)
