($ track-type $ = '7' & message = $ artist% 20-% 20 $ title = $ userid & YourTwitterHandle & override = true)

If  I wanted to add a Listen now link to my website could I enter something in the code above? if so what would i have to enter?

At all? or for adding content to the tweet?

First, the code you posted is messed up. I don't know how you did that but it wouldn't work whatsoever.

If you want to include a link to your web page, you can add it in the message parameter:
Code: [Select]
commercial=$track-type$&message=$artist$ - $title$ Listen to great music at http://yourradiowebsite.com/&userid=YourTwitterHandle&override=true
But there is a catch - Twitter anti-spam mechanism is checking for repeating links in tweets and might block your account if it decides that you are sending spam. Blocking is done automatically by a ruthless algorithm but to unblock account you'd have to contact Twitter support and that takes time, because every case is checked by a person.

It could get even worse if you get sam-song.info API access blocked. I don't know if Mastacheata has implemented some filtering for URLs in messages or if there is a policy against posting links. Better consult his service agreements.

I'm getting an error message that reads:

Access to the path 'C:\NowPlaying.txt' is denied?

I searched for the Template File within the Radio DJ files and opened it, but still getting the same message.

Any ideas?

Thanks much.

Is there a way to have it only tweet every so often.

Say for example, every 10 minutes, instead of every song?


Thank you again

I do not think so. I think it is setup in the script how often and what it does. I would contact them on how to edit it. I caution you though since it is not made for RDJ and more for SAM they might not be so willing to help.

Hello everyone,

I'm really sorry I didn't reply earlier.
I thought I had set up notifications for this post and only now got the idea to look here again since we're doing a relaunch of our web-application.

I'll make sure to look here more often now, but the best chance of reaching me is via the ticket system at sam-song.info or the various social media presences (twitter.com/samsonginfo and facebook.com/songposter)

The sam-song.info web-application will not receive any updates anymore.
But I'll try to add fields for intervals and songtypes to the web API.

We're currently working on a new version of the SongPoster app that will work on facebook and Google+ as well.
It's currently in an early beta stage and doesn't really target RadioDJ users, but you are still welcome nonetheless.
In order to join the beta testing apply for this Google Group and note that you're using RadioDJ (so we can tell you how to correctly format the URL for RadioDJ).

We'll discontinue the sam-song.info application once the new one is publicly released (probably with some grace period).
At that point you can either switch to the (currently in beta) version of the app or fire up a webserver and run the "old" songposter script/webservice yourself (Source code is available on Github)

The first version will be more or less a copy of the original sam-song.info project (i.e. We'll have Facebook support again and images on twitter are allowed as well)
We really like the idea for server-side intervals and track-type filtering and plan to introduce these features as soon as possible in an update release.

We're posting more regular updates on our facebook account at facebook.com/songposter

Ok, I'm curious as to where to put this file and how it will be triggered to post on facebook...

I've used SAM Broadcaster in the past, but I didn't have anything like this back in the day so I have no idea what to do with it now that it's edited...

What file? The PAL script?
I think the recycle bin would be a good place for that if you use RadioDJ and wrote down the information from that file.

The information gathered from that file needs to be put into the Now Playing plugin that ships with RadioDJ.
A post is triggered at the end of each track. I don't think there is any way to change the interval or make it post at a different point in the track.

So far this has worked flawlessly. But I have run into one problem when I play requests. What I want to do is when people request a song on my website and put their twitter handle in for their name, it adds that in at the end of the tweet. Here is what I have in my custom data field.

message=$title$%20by%20$artist$&%20$request_username$&userid=RadiopolisOL&override=true

Did I do something wrong? Please let me know!

Don't really know about the valid variables in RadioDJ, but if $request_username$ is valid, this should work.
Also you didn't really say what the problem is, only THAT there is a problem.
Last but not least: You know there's still a limit of 140 characters at twitter?
