    I have been trying to add this feature for a while and i had some troubles (that's why there was bugs on the topics yesterday) but it is finally here ! I always wanted to add a feature like this to one of the forums i manage, so i'm glad i finally understood how to do this

    For almost all downloads on this forum, the biography, a picture, and similar artists are automatically displayed without you have to do anything. I wanted to add a section to post biographys and pictures but it would have been very hard to build a decent database, and i doubt a lot of users would have contributed.

    But now this problem is solved because the script I made will just take the biography and pictures from last.fm !

    This feature will be very useful for peoples who want to discover new bands or just know more about what they are downloading. With the similar artists, it also gives a clear indication of what the band will sound like ! And if you liked it, then you can easily find similar artists / similar downloads.

    I might also add a page to automatically get the latest gigs from the bands and a few other things...

    we moved servers, we had no choice anyway... so now we got more ressources than before

    and no i don't think the server is slow, i just checked the server logs and the load is very low so the website isn't slowing down the servers

    anyway the scripts i added doesn't take much server ressources since the script gets the infos from another website (last.fm)


    and the bugs should all be fixed now
