  • Thanks Thom,

    Having the wordpress audio player in one column next to the aiff files would be utterly tremendous. That way my members can preview a lofi sound file first. It would save them their allotted downloads and it would save my bandwidth.

    Oh please oh please oh please Mr Thom 🙂

    Oh, so you want two different files in the same table row? An mp3 sample in one column, and an aiff full in another?

    That’s not what I was envisioning you were asking. That _may_ be possible. We’ll have to see.

    By the way, I’ve just finished fixing up the other thing you were asking for. In the next release, the shortcode will have two additional attributes: excludedirs and onlydirs. You would use one or the other, not both. They each take a comma-separated list of folder names. One excludes those folders from the display, and the other includes only those folders. I have it working for me in all conceivable variations. It works for the directory tree mode, and for the recursive mode. I have a parent directory (“Media”) with fifteen subdirectories. With [fileaway type="table" recursive=on sub="Media" onlydirs="Music, Movies"] I have it successfully only outputting the files from the “Music” and “Movies” subdirectories (including all files from their own subdirectories), but no files from their 13 sibling directories, and NO FILES from the parent “Media” directory.

    Just thought you’d like to know that. So at the very least, you’ll be able to display your mp3 files and your aiff files one on top of the other.

    Hi Thom,

    Yes I was needing the two file formats in the same row but each in their own separate column. So you’d have AIFF on the left and then MP3 on the right in an adjecent column.

    As I mentioned, if the MP3 link got replaced by the wp audio player that would be perfect.

    The reason it needs to be displayed in that way is so that a user can easily identify which mp3 is a preview of the AIFF files.

    If I display a different table of MP3 under the AIFF table the user won’t have a clue whats going on as a list might contain 100 or more files, so you can see the need to have them side by side.

    Should I send a photoshop rendering of my vision so you can see exactly what I’m harping on about? Not sure how to send an attachment via this forum though. Can I email you?

    You can email me, yes. It wouldn’t be two tables. It would be one table, with rows like this:
    mp3 sample 1
    aiff full 1
    mp3 sample 2
    aiff full 2
    mp3 sample 3
    aiff full 3

    At least, that’s what I’ve done so far. In terms of getting them in the same table. But it’s not too difficult to get them in the same row. The issue is finding the right audio player.

    My email is at the donate link (and I know you know where that is. 🙂

    Done, sir. Version 1.9 is now up, with significant improvements since last night’s piddly little test version. 😉
