I think I have the biography plugin installed properly on 6.1 (today's
version) - it is checked in the server settings > plugins and it shows
up under 'help', but no matter what the artist it always 'can't find
any information' - the artists and bands are not obscure. Is there
something I can check? ("Information provided by AllMusic' is
displayed). Thx.

Click that "allmusic" button - does it take a long time to show up (>15
seconds)? The "no info" page can happen, if there's a timeout. And as it's
stupidly caching that page it will always present you the empty
information for that artist... You can go to the plugins' settings and
purge the cache to have it update. Or I can send you the latest and
greatest version (_much_ improved behaviour with slow connections, but 6.1
only). Send me a private mail if you want to be my beta tester ;-).
