    Musicbox

       583

    For a while, I've been trying to find various things that I could add to my website that would allow my community to have more things to do while they browse around. Luckily, I found Musicbox by "onlyME" and instantly love what it does. For one thing, I've always wanted to have the ability to work around my website while listening to music but didn't want to bother opening up Winamp or iTunes to do so......this is where Musicbox comes into play for me.

    Although it's still work, you'll need to go through the process of adding genres & artists to the database of the player and afterwards, proceed to uploading your music. You can also allow your community to upload music as well as give them the ability to download the songs their looking for (in my case, I don't allow this for anyone as I don't want to bring attention to my site so instead, I let them upload and listen....that's it). It's a great way to advertise artists to bring attention to their work and also to sample songs to see if they like it and if they do, they can go to whatever online outlet they shop at and purchase the album/song.

    One of the main things that stop me from giving this application a 5-star rating is the rather small but it's something that I feel that could make things a bit more convenient for admins. I've notice that while uploading songs, you're only able to upload based on playlist and genre but not based on artist or albums. To me, I have all of my albums organized on my PC and want to upload them all one album at a time and click which genres the songs are within the album. Maybe there is a way to do this but I'm not just finding this. Anyway, I hope with each update, uploading songs will become less stressful when more options are added.

    I'll change my review rating when a update comes when I can do this or if someone explains to me a way upload based on albums & artists and being able to pick multiple genres against the album/artist.

    Magnum Theme

       2,059

    There aren't many themes on the IPS marketplace that allows as much customization for people like myself who are not proficient in web design coding. The Magnum theme is one of the very few themes on the market that allows you to customize your site the way you want with very as little as no web design coding knowledge at all. Right out the box, the theme comes with various settings that are self-explanatory that it makes it easy to recolor & reformat your IPB site the way you want.

     

    Along with the other add-ons from Taman, configuring the Magnum theme to fit your style is very easy. Customer service from Taman is top notch as he'll help you with any issues regarding his products (I've had a few run-ins where I needed his assistance and I've yet to be let down by his performance). I highly recommend any of his products but overall, I highly recommend the Magnum Theme to anyone who wants a theme for their site that they can configure to their liking while getting constant updates and support from Taman.

     

    This is what my site looks like now after configuring the theme to my liking:

  1. Ever since this app appeared on the marketplace, I've used it to no end and it has been one of the most useful additions to my site.

    Overall, chatbox is worth having on any IPB site and is a good alternative to the default chat app because it's free and doesn't have a user limit.
