How to Install

  • Go to ACP > applications and upload the downloaded tar file.
  • ThreadStarter: Core has to be installed for the ThreadStarter plugin to work!
  • Note: TheAudioDB is a online database run by volunteers. Small actors or albums might not have been added by anyone yet. Most of the time they can be easily imported from other sources if needed. You just have to register at TheAudioDB.com and import the artist using the 'Add' button. Afterwards it will be also available in the ThreadStarter plugin.

What's New in Version 1.1.2   See changelog


  • ThreadStarter topics now get updated automatically after the interval set in the ACP, this will only affect new topics and old topics that have been edited once since the update
  • Added a button to set the topic title automatically to the current selected ThreadStarter content
  • Fixed some performance issues
  • Albums and Artists can now be added by directly copy and pasting TheAudioDB URLs
  • The ThreadStarter Core only has to be installed once instead of one time for each plugin now. This reduces load times and leads to a less cluttered configuration
  • All ThreadStarter widgets are combined into a single widget now and have to be reconfigured
  • All ThreadStarter APIs have been combined into a single API new and have to be reconfigured

Note: With this update ThreadStarter Core is required, you can download it together with the plugin. It only needs to be installed once, if you installed it from another ThreadStarter plugin you do not need to install it again.
Widgets will need to be reconfigured once. It is recommended to have the latest version of all ThreadStarter plugins installed to avoid compatibility issues.

Excellent addition to any forum that has a music section - allows a great deal of information and detail to be add to a topic with a simple search and select method.  Album covers, track list and more are automatically added to the topic.  Top notch support from the developer too, cannot be faulted and is speedy and informative keeping you up-to-date on any issues.

Brilliant execution of a very worthwhile application.
