Welcome to the new Radio Rivendell!

Welcome to the new Radio Rivendell!

Very welcome to the new incarnation of Radio Rivendell! I hope you will like the changes and not be too upset with things that have moved or now behave different from before. I've worked pretty hard with these changes but please note that I'm still working on it and things will be fixed, corrected and updated as time goes by. I needed to get this initial installation up and running before I could go on and work with the other stuff.

So, what's new then?

  • New design! I've tried to get more fantasy feeling, we've lost some of it in the previous design.
  • Forum has been completely rewritten! Now I use my own custom forum. Therefore there are things that will work somewhat differently in the forums. But hopefully it all will be a little simpler. However, you need to request a new password! PhpBB has salted it's passwords and you all need to generate new passwords. Sorry for this!
  • The webplayer has been rewritten and improved! You will now finally be able to rate the music directly from it! I've also included a silly little chat, login/logout buttons and a little list of the last played tracks! Oh, and you can login directly from the webplayer too. Nice huh?
  • Hotkeys in the webplayer! Now you just hit the keys 1-5 to set the corresponding rate on the current playing track! Keys N, L and C takes you to the different tabs too. Nice, quick and simple! And spacebar will toggle playing!
  • New and updated artist, album and song pages
  • Last played now displays times in your own time zone
  • Quicker registration process for new users
  • Real-time weather! Expect it to get rainy and wet! :)

When (yeah, it's probably WHEN rather than IF) you run into problems and issues just post it in this forum topic!

Thank you all! I've worked with this for quite some time now and it feels as if it has paid off and was worth the wait :) Now let's get on with the new stuff! :D
