The plan for pluggins
#1 Album pluggin - will list albums on front page with album art and tracks for each album listed with option to add track details
#2 Photo album that will have a thumbnail for each album and Title
#3 Public comments
#4 File sharing pluggin that will have to upload options public/private url
#5 Podcast - show notes multi filetype links etc
Minimal Music Site is designed as very minimal. Pluggins will give the option to expand functions but maintain a minimal initial install.
Sat, Jun 10th, 2017
Is there a feature that you would like to see included in Minimal Music Site?
I have had a few ideas for features. Here are a few.
*A photo album add-on
*A podcaster add on with show notes, rss, links, multi filetype support
*A filesharing add-on with private/public options
Please let me know what you think of these ideas or if you have any ideas or suggestions you would like.

A new version of Minimal Music Site is now available on sourceforge. Version 17.06.42 includes updates that improve backup/restore functions for general backups and migrations. The update also includes many improvements to the general look and functionality of the project. You can get this latest version by going to the COPY page. Please stay tuned for a new theme development release that will help the MMS community in developing custom themes to sell or freely redistribute. If you already have MMS running on your server you can upgrade to the new version by checking your updates page. www.minimalmusicsite.org was updated using this method. Alternatively, you can download a full install via sourceforge.net.

The new update is getting close to completion. Be sure to check the update notes before installing there are several changes coming with the update.
Mon, May 29th, 2017
A new update will be posted soon. It will contain a fix for excluding login data for backups. This will make restoring non-dependent on previous login information. As well, if you are creating a backup for migrating to a new server it will allow a restore on a fresh install using your current login data. The current version will break the install if you restore a backup if you have changed your login information after the backup was created. I will post as soon as the update is finished and tested.

I recently received a message asking to increase the file upload size. If this is an issue you are having on your install it can be configured via your server settings. If you host your own server you can do a search on php file size increase. There are several methods for making this possible. If you buy hosting from a service provider you can contact their support and request the size be increased if it is something that they have to change for you. Typically it can be done with the php.ini file or making changes to your .htaccess. By default there are no limitations set in MMS. Any size limitation is handled by your individual server settings. I hope this helps!

Thank you to everyone who has submitted a comment. I appreciate the feedback. I will work on adding some new features soon. They will be released as updates and can be installed from the admin>settings>updates page.
