View Full Version : SS fishbone interface not refreshing properly

Often the bottom right pane of the main fishbone interface doesn't display or refresh. This is the area of the interface that shows the songs that have just played or are about to play.

Using SS 6.5.1.

Firefox says it is "transferring data" or "waiting on" the IP address of my SS (which is on this machine) like "transferring data from 192.168.1.116"

What's up?

that's nearing a year old. first suggestion is of course to upgrade.
if you are using Firefox, you can look into firebug to help you see
what is causing the holdup.
If there is a js error or a missing graphic, that can stick things.
It's too long ago for me to recall
what possible causes there were for playlist update problems.

OK. i upgraded to 6.5.4, and the same problem occurs.

I installed Firebug and i'm impressed with all the info it shows, but i don't know what to look for. is there a simple way to guide me?

you'll need to make sure you've forced the cache to clear.

it should show console entries when the playlist info is updated.
Last I checked, this was working. however, no more work is being
done on 6.5.x

All work is going into 7.0, and for me...I'm really very close to
suggesting removing Fishbone
skin. I've recently noticed that it's broken in a lot of places that
worked when I last did a huge batch
of updates and I have no desire to work on it any more.

thanks for the reply.

1. i downloaded 6.5.4 from the slimdevices site as the most recent update. is there one more recent?

2. what skin do you recommend instead of fishbone? it's the one that i always thought had the most functionality

If you're going to do that will someone please add the ability to queue
the selected object (track/album/whatever) 'next' please unless it's
there and I'm missing it or it's been added over the last couple of
weeks. I like the default skin but am using Fishbone as it has the
'next' facility which I use a lot.

Thanks.

One of the things i like about Fishbone is the ability to "subtract" a playlist's contents from the current playlist. So, i can add a playlist to the current playlist and then choose another one and say "remove any of these songs from the current playlist." Very handy
