and reverse sort order
Feature Request #1:
Generic content name. My website posts "Messages" and not
"Songs". Is there anyway of consistently changing the string
"Song(s)" to "Message(s)" or any other value (e.g.,
"Media", etc) This would enable gnump3d to work cleanly with
changes you suggested. But it was still necessary to edit
gnump3d, gnump3d-index, and gnump3d-top to change the "hard-coded"
titles they print out from "Song(s)" to "Messages(s)". If you
don't edit these files the statistics and directory listings
contain an inconsistent mix of Song/Message titles. Would be nice
if the themes and/or config file consitently carried the titles
throught the web page dished out by gnump3d.
song content. (Hey, music shouldn't have an exclusive lock on MP3!)
Sure, you can edit the templates and change "song" to "message",
"lecture", etc. They can usually be found in /usr/share/gnump3d/
presuming you're using the "Tabular" theme, it would be
index.html, line 133
now.html, line 6
search.html, line 116
statistics.html, line 104
change Song(s) to Message(s)
It so happens I am using the "Tablar" theme, and already made the
Having said all this, the number of occurances of the title
"Song(s)" in these modules was small, so it seems like it would be
relatively easy to put these title strings as parameters in the
gnump3d.conf config file or theme files. (Yeah, easy for me to
The obvious problem I now face is having to re-edit everything
the next time I upgrade!
Folks were talking about adding new language translations to
Perhaps *all* the text variables of the various languages could be
to these language files. Then you just create a new language file
call it Messages with the text you want.
Stan, you be duh man wid' a plan!
Sounds like an excellent idea--do you know (or anyone else for that matter) when and if
this "new language translation" feature will be implemented?
The only other issue is support for reverse sorting--is that currently an item on the
"gnump3d Feature Request List"?
For that matter, is there such a thing as a "gnump3d Feature Request List" to
get a feel for what is coming down the pipeline?
