im running these versions. 

problems:

***panels themselves wont show.  a right click to the sidebar gives me no panel option like in 8.3.

***the columns UI perference option [layout].....shows only playlist view.


FYI  to get these versions I followed links from the manual site.  Nothing was just a random post of it.

BTW im running 9.1 if that wasnt already assumed.

for the album art. it seems to be an old version
check here for the latest
http://cherans.bol.ucla.edu/fooplugins.html

the sidebar has been removed, you must use the layout system as you said yourself on the previous post.

Try to right click somewhere (on a vertical or horizontal splitter, or the base of your layout system) and see if the album art panel is available from:
Insert panel->panels->album art
(like it is said here:
edited, see the first post )

If it works first for the album art, we will see for other panels next

I have completed the FAQ and the UI columns scripting tutorial is now finished. The manual won't change much now I think. (But I still have some minor things to do)

I do not have any feedback to get ideas or advice upon things to create or change..

Congratulations. In my opinion, this is the best manual for customising and understanding foobar. Thanks.

Perhaps, one topic could be added into the manual: Including stationary pictures into the foobar frame.
To my knowledge, there exist to ways manage this:

1. Using the album art panel (drawback: Only one picture possible, tiring to modificate all album arts)

2. Using custom pictures for buttons - buttons without further functions (multiple pictures possible but not very convenient)

Or do you know antother way?

I have read this trick in the foobar 0.9 appearance thread, I will detail Psyphre fcs and add it to my manual later (Im quite busy for the moment) I will detail things there about fake buttons to display pictures, But it will remain in the "Customize you foobar" section (which should appear soon also)

Thanks for the reply

Just activate "Use custom style spec" for this column and put e.g. "$set_style(back,$rgb(200,200,200),$rgb(150,150,150))" into the code field.

Second step: General use

    Use File menu to add files or directories and manage your playlists.

    You can lock your playlists in the Edit menu with Read only and change the playback order with the corresponding toolbar.


I don't see that at all !? I use 0.9.1 and im trying to copy (yes copy) a sheme right now and need all the info i can get (want to try to copy snowfalls sheme,i love that one).

(Don't take me wrong,i love the way his foobar is made,perfect for me.Huge Album Art and all the other features,also by copying i learn how to do it myself)

1) I'm not sure (I do not use this plugin), but I think you can't maybe you can ask on the corresponding topic:

2) I didn't understand anything please be more clear  But I think that you are looking for Preferences-> Genral -> sort incoming files by

@Erich w/ an h, corrected  kanak also gave me a lot of corrections

@pancho I will add that you need foo_utils to have  this option

If you do not have the "Read-only" command in the Edit menu, you need to install foo_utils from my page.


I don't see it on your site,i only see you talking about it but not a download link:unsure:

You have a FAQ 'How to make "The Beatles" become "Beatles, The" ?' in your great manual.

Another possible supplementation is the opposite case: How to make "Beatles, the" become "the Beatles"?

In my artist tags (and the directory names as well) I prefer "artistname, xyz", where xyz are different text stings (e.g. the german "der, die, das"). This makes is very easy to sort the songs appropriately. On the other hand in the playlists it should be displayed as "xyz artistname".

The following code can be used in this case:

Code: [Select]
$ifgreater($put(commaplace,$strstr(%artist%,', ')),0,
$right(%artist%,$sub($sub($len(%artist%),1),$get(commaplace))) $left(%artist%,$sub($get(commaplace),1)),
%artist%
)[


Here the text string is not required to be exactly 3 characters.

Maybe you want to implement it into your FAQ section

@unart I noted that script, I will implement it somewhere soon

I would like to know something about the navigation:

Do you prefer a rather complete navigation menu or a short one

for a complete navigation menu: (I prefer this solution personally)
pros: Easy to find a page in few clicks
cons: New users will be lost and won't know where to click first (and it could discourage new users)

for a short navigation menu:
pros: Only main pages will be available from the context menu
cons: could be boring to know where a specific page is. (having to go to the map page, read it and find the good link)

edit: Two small pages added:
Shortcuts:

Contextual menu:

autoplaylist "history" can also be sorted so that the newest files will be added at the top of the playlist:

Query:
Code: [Select]
Play_counter GREATER 0

Sort Format:
Code: [Select]
$sub(30000000000000,$substr(%last_played%,1,4)$substr(%last_played%,6,7)$substr(%last_played%,9,10)
$substr(%last_played%,12,13)$substr(%last_played%,15,16)$substr(%last_played%,18,19))


Moderation: Added linebreak in code to preserve forum layout.

@ladiko I will see your code, but are you sure that 30000000000000 isn't a bit "too much" in 8,24*10^10 years, you are likely to be dead.. Even Earth should be destroyed..

Moreover, it seems to be quite a strange script.. I'm not sure that files will added in the correct order..

I have added a quite important page about tags. A bit messy for the moment. I'm thinking on how to improve it.

If anyone sees mistakes (it wouldn't be amazing..) or have any idea about how to improve it, I'm interested
