SOLVED Updateing a 1.6 extension to work on 2.5.x

Post by ghanlon » Wed Feb 22, 2012 3:23 am

Who can help point me in the right direction for this.
MP3 Browser for 1.6 - plugin Extension does not seem to work for 2.5 platforms, when installing new.
Can anyone show me where to find the subtle difference that need to be made for this to work?

Currently not getting responses from creator, so I thought I might take a look.

Hi,

I installed this mp3 browser plugin on a test 2.5.1 site and it seems to work ok. Is this the extension that you are referring to?

What couldn't you get to work?

Yea that is it

Weird It works on one site but not another
It works here: - http://georgehanlon.com/ Link for player on menu
And does not work here: - http://jaredhanlon.com/m/ Link for player in menu

Both sites 2.5.1 on same hosting server the one working started as 1.6 and was upgraded, the other was new 12.5.1 install.

Ahh. I know what the problem is. If your joomla install is at the root of the web server it works ok. When the install is in a directory, in your case m, it doesn't work.

Try this. Replace the plugins/content/mp3browser/mp3browser.php file with the one in the attached zip file.

mp3browser.zip

klowther, thank you for looking at this.
not sure I agree with the Joomla in root theory or not yet, so I did a freash backup of 2.5.1 site and installed on localhost in a root for local domain. got site working well, then a fresh install of mp3Browser.

All looked good, display right downloads music properly, but will not play.
I renamed the mp3browser.php file and copied in yours, and it work works now.

YeaHa!

Can you tell me what is the difference here?

Thanks again.

Hmm, not sure why it didn't work on your localhost. It would be interesting to see what the plugin generated in that case.

If you are really curious, reset the mp3browser.php file, display the page and verify that its broken. Then, in the browser menu, select the File | Save Page As or Save As menu item. In the 'save as type' field of the dialog select Web Page - html only. Save the .html file to someplace on your system, put it in zip file and upload it here.

I'm ready to put it to bed.
2.5.1 site in its root, live site. I did a fresh mp3browser install. music not playing.
I uninstalled it.
then took the mp3browser package, and replaced their file with yours, re-zipped it.
Installed on above site and works like it should.
Did you alter that file with the if / than / else statements as well as a few root notices I saw, or was it just from a different package?

Either way this one is getting chalked up to the fact that there are people who are smarter then I, when it comes to many things, so thank you so much again.
That must be why you are the Joomla! Explorer while I am still a Joomla! Enthusiast.

Did I say thank you?

Thanks

Yes. Those are changes that I made to eliminate some PHP warnings and as well allow the mp3 files to play.

Glad to hear it is working for you. Good luck.

Yep, that was it. I just (8/31/12) installed the latest version of MP3Browser on my new 2.5.1 development site situated on XAMPP localhost. The revised mp3browser.php file did the trick. Definitely saved me some time...I was getting prepared to investigate the php file myself when I did one last check for a solution. Thanks very much for the good work! Let's hope the MP3Browser author takes note.

I had similar problems, even with the latest version (for Joomla 2.5), along with some other new requirements. So I forked the plugin development. See here: http://sverhagen.github.com/mp3-Browser/

I believe I made similar corrections to yours, which are released on the above location. Might be helpful for people who rather install a full working package, rather than messing around with separate (though well-intentioned) PHP files.
