View Full Version : Playlist question and one minor question

Major question:
(On the web interface) Is there a way to keep the
playlist's scroll status
constant when the browser refreshes? Unclear, right?
I like to load my entire
playlist on shuffle and just let it go. Everytime
that the browser refreshes,
the playlist seems to bounce up to the very first
song, which means I can't see
ahead to what's coming up next. This seems to be the
case for many different
skins.

So I guess I'd like for the browser to display

1
2
3
4
5
..
..
..
1500
1501
X->1502
1503

Where X-> indicates that the song is playing, and have
X-> update to the next
song and have the browser refresh, but still have that
lower (now playing)
portion of the playlist be displayed. I hope someone
understands this - it's
the best I can do.

Minor question:
Is there any hope of the software understanding
unicode tags?

I understand what you mean and better still, I know how to get HTML to do
it!

I'm not familiar with the web interface side of the server but I know some
people who are! I suggest taking this over to the developers list.

A more technical description of what is needed:

In the right hand browser pane, the server displays
playlist.html#current?...

In the generated HTML we place a <a name="current"></a> tag just above the
currently active song.

This should be simple enough to add/sort out?
