I use my subsonic every day and so do many of my friends and family to stream music at work.

I thought it would be nice to have a message area on the main screen that you could use as the admin to post messages regarding what ever you want, such as server will be down for maintence on such date, just added new "kid rock' cd, etc....

I also thought that it would be nice to have an integrated email system that would allow you to store your users email and be able to send out an email to all users for some what of the same purpose as stated above.

I think it would also be cool to have a user modifiable interface for customization. Nothing complex, i do understand i can modify the theme a bit, but maybe have a section where you could upload a personal banner/logo in place of the subsonic one to allow users to make subsonic a little more personable.

Let me know your thoughts likes/dislikes?

I'd like to agree with the above & suggest that even some sort of chat between users who are currently on could be quite useful in certain instances...

BTW, it is possible to manually edit any of the images, etc. to fit your taste. It is best to stick with the same dimensions.


Thanks

Chat!

Postby vertigocreative » Wed Feb 11, 2009 6:31 pm

I'd love to have a chat feature between online listeners...

And I agree with the ability to make written comments on individual songs too...

Chat and mail

Postby DJRoy » Sat Feb 14, 2009 12:26 pm

Some of my users suggested this chat feature. I think chatting makes this already fantastic application even more dynamic. Users will go to subsonic to listen, meet and talk about music!

Ditto. Both of these features would be very useful!

New Features

Postby jmlove » Sat Mar 21, 2009 1:49 pm

While I agree with most of the suggestions, I think that a chat service with those playing music would be excellent and down the road an extension of that that would allow "admins" to chat with other http online admins directly through the app.

In my opinion this would significanlty increase subsonic community expansion, creative input, and increase funding.

There are a good nuumber of users, mostly non-techie that use and will use subsonic but will never participate in user forums but can bring a tremendous amount of user experience and ideas to the table.

Thanks, Jeff

I too was just looking to post a feature request for this very thing. Even a shoutbox would be awesome!

Thanks again for the awesome program!

I stuck a shoutbox in the user tab that normally shows the usage charts. Works great for my purposes, just allowing people a chance to chat/comment etc. Not too interested in commenting on songs/albums/etc. I prefer to have all the chat stuff isolated in a shoutbox.

Look in home.jsp for:

<c:when test="${model.listType eq 'users'}">
<table>
<tr>
<th><fmt:message key="home.chart.total"/></th>
<th><fmt:message key="home.chart.stream"/></th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><img src="<c:url value="/userChart.view"><c:param name="type" value="total"/></c:url>" alt=""/></td>
<td><img src="<c:url value="/userChart.view"><c:param name="type" value="stream"/></c:url>" alt=""/></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th><fmt:message key="home.chart.download"/></th>
<th><fmt:message key="home.chart.upload"/></th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><img src="<c:url value="/userChart.view"><c:param name="type" value="download"/></c:url>" alt=""/></td>
<td><img src="<c:url value="/userChart.view"><c:param name="type" value="upload"/></c:url>" alt=""/></td>
</tr>
</table>

</c:when>

with something like:

<c:when test="${model.listType eq 'users'}">

<div >
<iframe title="shoutbox" src="http://link/to/shoutbox" width="100" height="100" frameborder="0" scrolling="none"></iframe>
</div>

</c:when>

Add whatever sort of styling you'd want. there are plenty of free shoutbox sites like shoutmix.com you can use.

Sweet, man - I can't wait to try this out! I'm assuming I could stick it on any of the pages? Like the Home Page?

Subsonic has a welcome message that shows up on the random album page, which is basically the "home page". You could very easily replace the welcome message with a shoutbox. Look for this in home.jsp:

Code: Select all
            <c:if test="${not empty model.welcomeMessage}">
                <td style="vertical-align:top;max-width:150px">
                    <div style="padding:0 1em 0 1em;border-left:1px solid #<spring:theme code="detailColor"/>">
                        <sub:wiki text="${model.welcomeMessage}"/>
                    </div>
                </td>
            </c:if>


Just mess around with it a bit you'll figure it out!

Thanks, Zeekay. I first tried putting it on the home page where the welcome message is. I agree - that is the best spot for it. But once I got it there and was testing it out, I found that, because that frame refreshes so often, many times I would get interrupted with a refresh while I was typing a message and I would lose whatever I was typing. If there was an easy way around this, I would love to have it in that spot.

In the mean time, I stuck it in the left pane, just under the bottom index letters. It works well there, too, but it does eat into the space allotted for the index.

Great to have the chat function enabled on my version of Subsonic!

Thanks!

Request for chat/im

Postby xminer » Mon Apr 13, 2009 11:30 pm

I also get this request a lot... everyone loves the software so much we all want to just hang out in Subsonic listening to music... having even a single chat room that you get dumped into when you log in would be great... no frills needed, just want to chat it up while we listen...

In general any semi interactive messaging would be great, something a tad more interactive and site wide than the comments... and I think the comments are good by the way too...

Perhaps we can choose a method to integrate some of the little hacks to 3rd party chats into subsonic as mentioned in this thread and make them "unofficially supported" methods... perhaps a very small adjustments to Subsonic could be made to make that really easy to integrate if perhaps if a native Chat/IM is not an easy or desired feature to put in Subsonic.

Thanks a million, Subsonic rocks...
