MixTape Music Playlist Mod

This addon mod creates a new profile field that allows members to add a music playlist from MixTape.me to their profile.

Download : field_mixtape-1.00.zip

Refer to the Etano Wiki Documentation on how to install custom profile field addons.

Once this addon has been installed go to the "Profile Fields" section in your admin panel and you'll see a new field type (Mixtape Playlist) in the list for creating a new profile field. If you want you can also also create a special profile category for this field, named something like "My Music Playlist".

Basic Instructions: Once you have installed the mod, a user goes to their account manager and clicks the edit link for the section which you placed it in. In the blank field for mixtape you add the embed code for a playlist, just like you would to embed a YouTube video on your site, it can be either the embed code for your own playlist or someone else's.

If you register with Mixtape.me and create and embed your own playlist it allows you to manage it by adding or deleting songs.

If you embed someone else's playlist you don't have to register with Mixtape.me, however you won't be able to manage it as you won't have access to it because it's not your playlist.

It's up to you to get familiar with it and then include the necessary instructions on your site for your members.

YouTube Profile Field Mod

This addon mod creates a new profile field that allows members to add a YouTube Video to their profile.

Download the field_youtube-1.0.zip file from the : Etano Project Repository at Google Drive

Refer to the Etano Wiki Documentation on how to install custom profile field addons.

Once this addon has been installed go to the "Profile Fields" section in your admin panel and you'll see a new field type (YouTube) in the list for creating a new profile field. If you want you can also also create a special profile category for this field, named something like "My Video".

Note - The mod allows users to simply include either the "SHARE" code or the "URL Link" for the video and the mod will take care of creating the required embed code. They can also include the "EMBED" code as well but they must select "Use old embed code" when fetching the code from YouTube. When you create the profile field for YouTube you should include Help Text for Users: that says something like .... Include either your YouTube "SHARE" code or the "URL Link" here. If you want to include "EMBED" code you must select "Use old embed code" when copying embed from YouTube.

NOTE - if it won't install via the package manager, it's a very simple mod to manually install by unzipping the file on your computer and upload the 09field_youtube.class file to this folder location on your on server ... /includes/classes/fields/

Auto Activate Members at Registration Mod

This mod disables the required email confirmation with activation at sign up. After signing up the user will not be sent a confirmation email that includes a link required to activate their account, instead their account will be instantly auto activated allowing them to login and use their account immediately after signing up.

important note
WARNING - by using this mod to disable the email confirmation and activation allows people to sign up using fake or inactive email addresses and also makes your site more susceptible to spammers. Use at your own discretion!

Open your processors/join.php file and make the following changes:

On about line #141 locate this snip of code:
".ASTAT_UNVERIFIED."
and change it to:
".ASTAT_ACTIVE."
On about line #147 locate this line of code and remove it:
send_template_email($input['email'],sprintf($GLOBALS['_lang'][70],_SITENAME_),'confirm_reg.html',get_my_skin(),$input);


Then open your skins_site/def/info_signup.html file and change the message From:
<p>A confirmation email has been sent to the address you specified ({output.email}).</p> <p>You need to read and respond to this email before you can use your account. If you don't do this, the new account will be deleted automatically after a few days.</p>
To:
<p>Your account has been activated and is now ready to use. <br /><br /> Continue to the <a href="{tplvars.relative_url}login.php">login page</a> and begin using your account.</p>
NOTE: in your admin "Features and Options" section if you have "new profiles require approval" checked (which should be the very first item at the top of the list), then new members still won't be able to login and use their account until you manually approve them. So in order for this mod to work properly you should uncheck "new profiles require approval" in the admin.

Aesthetic Modification for Etano Thumbs

Allows you to have all the thumbnails of your Etano photos appear square and even.
Thumbs

Here's How:
Open the img_functions.inc.php file located in your "includes" folder.

On line #68 replace the following line of code ...

imagefilledrectangle($mynewimg,0,0,$size[0],$size[1],0xFFFFFF);

with this ...

$bgColor = imagecolorallocate($mynewimg, 0,0,0);
imagefilledrectangle($mynewimg,0,0,$size[0],$size[1],$bgColor);

important note
Important - in your Etano admin, go to "Features and Options" and then scroll down and expand the "Photo Album" section, and be sure that the box for "Use round corners for user photos?" is unchecked. Any thumbs that we're previously created before making this modification will not be changed, they will still have the rounded corners, or a square white background if you weren't using the rounded corners. There's no way to alter the appearance of thumbs that have already been created by the system as this is done during the photo upload process.
