Lost my internet-connection for a while, that's why i couldn't post screenshots... but finally.... here they are http://www.kingsizebeatz.com/download/ksb_admin.jpg
Here you can see the acp hack... when you add a new forum you have to choose in which gallery (--> "forum category") the new forum will be displayed...http://www.kingsizebeatz.com/download/ksb_forum_music.jpg
Now we are in the music gallery... has the same look as the forum, that's because it is created by the forum.php (actually it's the index.php but i had to rename it because i added a portal)http://www.kingsizebeatz.com/download/ksb_viewforum_music.jpg
Here we have the viewtopic.php, where we have an overview of all tracks uploaded..... not very interesting as it works, looks, feels and smells like in the forum...http://www.kingsizebeatz.com/download/ksb_viewtopic_music.jpg
That's how it looks like when you enter a thread... the first post will contain a flash-mp3-player... did not have the time do programm one yet... will probably take some time ^^.... if the user choosed to make his file downloadable, a link will be displayed... replies are handled like there are in the forum...http://www.kingsizebeatz.com/download/ksb_upload_confirm.jpg
So let's have a look at the interesting part of the gallery.... the upload-section.... but before we can enter the upload-area, we will have to confirm... well... something
... hate writing those texts http://www.kingsizebeatz.com/download/ksb_upload_main.jpg
Now that we have confirmed, we now have the rights to upload a mp3.... one has to enter the file, the artist and title.... one may add some "feature-artists" and make the song downloadable for other users.... all theese informations will be written in the ID3-Tag.... http://www.kingsizebeatz.com/download/ksb_viewtopic_vote.jpg
Other Users can vote the songs on a scale from 1 to 10.... i implemented a "top 5" feature on the portal.... i will probably add a "chart-system" or something.... we'll see ...
so that's it.... during the next days i will add a ajax-upload-progress-bar, client-side-validation of the upload-script and some other tiny details.....
