Re: Georgia: A dynamically generated fb2k theme

Hello, I'm completely new to using themes for fb2k, and I really can't wrap my head around how to install Georgia. I am following the instructions on the github page, but I'm stuck at step 8 as I don't know how to "add JScript Panel to a new theme." I know basically nothing about how to configure fb2k, I've just used the default theme for years.
Thanks!

Hello, I've done some fiddling to make georgia look nice on my pc but when I ported my foobar installation to another computer the transport buttons broke, see attached image.

I figured it could have something to do with filepaths but I wasn't able to find where the actual transport icons are stored. Instead, in the code in gerogia-main.js the button icons are retrieved from a struct g_guifx which in turn is defined on line 362 in Common.js:
Code: [Select]
var g_guifx = {
    name:          'Guifx v2 Transports',
    play:          1,
    pause:         2,
    stop:          3,
    record:        4,
    rewind:        5,
    fast_forward:  6,
    previous:      7,
    next:          8,
    replay:        9,
    refresh:       0,
(...)
So this explains why the buttons look as they do. I'm assuming that somewhere else in the code the contents of g_guifx are modified with the actual button icons but I wasn't able to find it. Any help with fixing this would be much appreciated.

And yes, I'm aware that I can probably fix this by updating and reinstalling but, as mentioned, I've done some tweaks to the code and am loathe to have to redo them.

The transport icons are obtained from the Guifx font.  You need to have this font (Guifx v2 Transports.ttf) installed on your new computer.  It can be found in the Fonts folder under the Georgia folder.  You may need to install the other fonts in this folder as well.  Hopefully this will solve your problem.

Hi.  Be sure you have "Show artist country flags" turned on in the options menu.  You also need to add an ARTISTCOUNTRY field for the flags and a PUBLISHER field for the record label to the Properties menu for your albums or tracks if they don't already exist..  LABEL should also work for the record label.  And these fields need to be populated with valid values recognized by Georgia.  You will find these in the flags and recordlabel folders under the images folder in Foobar's profile folder.  Hopefully, this will solve your issues.

Thank you, I will review your observations, I have activated the option to show flags, I don't know very well how to see the tag information of the songs.

To access album or track properties, right click on the item in a library viewer, such as Album List, and select Properties at the bottom of the drop down menu.  You will see all the fields currently available for that item under  the first tab, Metadata.  If not already present, you will need to add new fields for ARTISTCOUNTRY and PUBLISHER.  There is a "+ add new" button at the bottom you can try, but I've never used it.  I added my fields by selecting Advanced at the bottom of the Preferences menu and adding them under Display/Properties dialog/Standard fields:  ARTISTCOUNTRY=ARTISTCOUNTRY;PUBLISHER=PUBLISHER;.  I've attached examples below.

Hey guys, just wanted to give everybody a quick update. I had surgery on New Year's Eve, and things have definitely improved, although I'm still on a lot of painkillers and the recovery isn't complete yet.
 
I've got a tiny bit of testing to do but expect a beta of the new release coming shortly.

Just published the first spider_monkey beta. If you're able/willing, please give it a look. Once 2.0.0 goes official there will be no more jscript versions released.

Perhaps it should come with 2 colour schemes... red or blue.  ;D

It actually comes with several, they're just all disabled other than the current default blue one. I have plans to make that configurable as well  :D

Hi.  So far so good.  I've been using your SM version since it came out in September and the only issue I had was with the track info not updating for streams.  Thank you for fixing that.  It works great now.  I have seen something odd, though.  The View menu doesn't display all the available options and it's not consistent.  Sometimes it only displays about a third of them, sometimes about 2 thirds and sometimes all but the last 2 or 3.  I got around it by adding a button for the Popup Main Menu which works fine, but it is kind of puzzling.  I'm not sure when it started happening.  It could have even happened under Jscript and I just didn't notice it until I recently added a component whose options are next to the last item.  Thank you again for all your hard work.

Thank you snotlicker, that was it.  I bumped it up to 500 and it works fine now.

re; menu problem, it might be the 200 defined on this line of code is not enough for all commands.

https://github.com/kbuffington/Georgia/blob/f25e4432017775f1c11b25d7624ddfe801d60ba9/js/helpers.js#L416

I always used 1000 in my samples because I remember a component named foo_softplaylists that generated silly amounts of items "back in the day".
Damn you're good. Fix will be in the next release. Looks like we might be able to get through beta quickly though. Very few issues so far.

I started using Georgia a couple weeks ago, and have really been liking it.  However, is it possible to make it display the full date in the playlist instead of just the year?

There'll be a new option added in the playlist settings in the next beta.
