i changed the file path name and everything works except hearing the preview. preview was working before this, but i'm not sure what i have done wrong?
sorry it is probably something obvious.
it used to be angela instead of mp3shop (i realized that my name was not a good path name :-)
is this what you need or ? thanks
Thanks. There is no preview file loading. If I look at the source code I see:
Do you actually have anything specified for the preview path for the track?
i am unable to fill the box to specify a file path -- as it does not show on the page, it just shows a little box
Sorry, you`ve lost me. There is a box to enter the path for all tracks. Can you post a screenshot of what you mean?
the place to put the input the mp3-previews file path does not enable me to input anything, as you can see the input box is small. i suspect i've inadvertently deleted some information

Thanks. I assume then that you haven`t uploaded any mp3 files into the previews folder?
correct, i did, before i changed the file path name and then when i changed the filepath name the tiny box appeared.
the path to view the page is correct, i am not sure what you are asking? why would that box be small?

Its small because its not reading any mp3 files in the 'mp3-previews' folder. Or there are files there, but they are assigned to other tracks.
You can adjust the relative path to this directory in the 'admin/control/defined.inc.php' file:
define ('PREVIEW_RELATIVE_PATH', '../mp3-previews/');
Change the relative to full server path.
When i go to 'admin/control/defined.inc.php' file - i do not see ('PREVIEW_RELATIVE_PATH', '../mp3-previews/');
I see the following (*to hide my name/password)
// Specify admin username..
define ('USERNAME', '***');
// Specify admin password..
define ('PASSWORD', ' ***');
// Max amount of tracks to batch add...
define ('ADD_TRACKS_TOTAL', 30);
In case i have it in the wrong place, the sample MP3 preview i have is located here -- /public_html/mp3shop/maian_music/maian_music/mp3-previews
sorry to be so confused :-(
Correction, I found where the file path for preview is assigned, now i am probably not putting in the correct file path.
Relative path to 'mp3-previews' folder from admin area
If relative doesn`t work, use full server path
define ('PREVIEW_FULLSERVER_PATH', ' ../public_html/mp3shop/maian_music/maian_music/mp3-previews/
this is probably mumbo jumbo ?

Yes, thats the one. Why have you changed the variable name?? Its should be PREVIEW_RELATIVE_PATH and the path should be your FULL server path.
ok changed it back ... i thought that is what you were saying :-)
um, now the whole thing is missing, the whole store :-( i don't know what i could have done :-(
Sorry, I have no way of knowing what you might have done to cause the error. Try downloading the script again and replace the file you edited.
me neither...i compare the files to the downloaded ones on my computer and the script looks the same... freaky ! I don't even know which file could have been changed... ugh :-(
i am unable to access the admin page, it just shows nothing...
i'll try what you suggest
OK it's back yeah!
found i had deleted the word define in front of the previews line...phew...but still not able to see the preview line....back to the drawing board :-)
ps, i am not cut out for this kinda stuff :-)

I am wondering should i just upload the mp3-previews file again?
also wondering the mp3 short preview is saved as a wma file...is that a problem? the full version song "mp3" is a wma too.

ah yes, that will be the problem. The system will only read mp3 files from the previews directory.
thanks so much for your help ;-)
