The FAQ says that one can edit lyrics via the web interface..how do i do that?

I've just submitted some lyrics, but i realized that i submitted the wrong lyrics for the wrong songs....

login first. And then use "my lyrics" link, for example.


I did that..but how do I edit?
All I get is a overview of my posted lyrics :



And if i select a song there is also no way to edit it:

Select a song and you should see the edit / remove links at the bottom: if not, you probably don't have enough privileges, ask dug.

HTH.

I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but is there an alternate database we could use? I'm finding alot of erroneous lyrics for my songs.

Unicode search still doesn't work, moreover it "crashes" the searching process

So go ahead and correct them. Support this project. I do it every day.

If you can't edit lyrics, pm dug and ask him for the priviliges

And that's correct for the 9.4? Strange, but I'l check what I can do.

Great plugin!

Is there a way to get it to work with streaming files (i.e. with the XM Radio plugin?)

it just works for me, anyone else has this problem?

I wonder why it doesn't work just as is. I think it's more about the radio support realisation: all the metadata is empty, but in the playlist there's a track name...

Is it possible to have the popup window where the lyrics come in as a tab inside column ui, at the moment ive tried doing a Track info mod that only displays %lyrics% (which isnt allways good if the lyrics are to long... no scrolling :l), but i still manually have to get lyrics and press ok and so on..

Yes, you have to get lyrics manually  Use a hotkey for that. May be it's really a good idea to get lyrics while playing... Okay, added it to the todo list . But you don't  have to press ok, or even get the preview window, check the settings. You have to uncheck the "show every lyrics before applying" chekbox.

Hey, since this database is run by the makers of the plugin... I suppose this is the best place to post this...

But if there is going to be a public database like this, there's going to have to be some rules, or at least regulations...

For example, foreign language lyrics become a bit of an issue...
Anyone who has worked with Japanese music knows that often lyrics are listed in Romanized Characters (i.e. just the pronounciations, put into English). But I often enjoy seeing the original Japanese characters, as they often give more of the meaning to the song and such...

So which one should go in? Should we do both? That sounds weird.

On some songs it isn't a problem... because the romanized version will have the title in romanized characters, and the Japanese text version can have the Japanese text title... but a number of times the actual song titles are written in romanized characters... so there would be a conflict.

I recently uploaded full lyrics for a song using Japanese characters (for song title and lyrics) to test out the capability of Japanese text support... And it all worked fine. I suppose it's UTF-8.

Anyway... Is this going to reserved to an "English only/English readable only" database? Or can we find some way to include the others?

EDIT: The more I think about it, the more it sounds like I should just keep my Japanese lyrics to myself. Opinions?

What happened to the database? The site seems to be down and no lyrics are available.

Same problem here. I can access the site, but it seem to contain very few lyrics. Hope dug has an archived version somewhere and will restore it soon.

I have not tested it throughly, but seems to be normal here.

Only 4 bands for 'A'
I think that's intended: dug put a limit on the results for performance reasons. Try a artist search (for example "AME") to see what I mean.

PS: yeah, I agree that the letters links are of little use at the moment.
