I recently started to rebuild my folk song website recently and when I installed ABC Tunebook, I realised it no longer worked for a number of reasons:
- PHP had moved on to beyond version 5
- The browsers no longer allowed plug-ins
So I had to put in some temporary work arounds. No doubt those more familiar with the software intricacies would say I’m going around this the wrong way, but at least I have it working on a sandbox version [http://s593332318.websitehome.co.uk/sandbox/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Tunebook.GreenGrowsTheRasses].
If anyone else wants to set up quickly, or has more time to do it neatly, here’s what I did:
- This was the ‘simpler’ work around. After following Hans’ instructions to install, I also installed PccfToPcfOverride by Chuc G. This removed the errors but the sound would not play.
- As none of the bowsers had plug-ins any more, I installed no-plug-in on my laptop and that took the sound file and allowed me to download / play it normally.
It’s still messy, I only had a couple of hours to spare. I’ve tried to contact Hans and I’m awaiting his reply. In the mean time, I’ll have a more detailed look next week.[July 2017]
