View Full Version : DAX Version 2 tags

OCD 6.x introduces a new style of tags (obviously XML inspired).

The old DAX tags (version 1) looked like this:


The new DAX tags (version 2) look like this:


However, in order to use the new tags you must include the following declaration in the Declaration section (see Declaration tab in DaxEdit).


If this declaration is not present, you will receive a script error message.

OCD 6.0 beta 1 (build 9715) includes a theme with the new tags. Look for 'Default Theme.dax' in the Templates sub folder.

Hi Paul,

Do you know what the Ver. 2 tagname is for an Album Composer (as opposed to a Track Composer) ???

Im trying to get the Album page to display Composer's name in the title block, as well as the Artist's.

Hi Chris

The logical tag would be <dax:composer/>, since album producer is <dax:producer/>, album soloist is <dax:soloist/> etc. However, as far as I can see the album composer tag is missing.

DaxEdit contains a list of available tags (see right hand column). Album composer is not in the list.

Hi Paul,

What you've found pretty much matches my experience......perhaps I'm starting to get the hang of this programming thingy ;D

So I'm at a bit of a dead end. Think I'll wait for Andrei to come up with the answer.

I've just reinstalled OrangeCD after a hiatus... and I find that the templates have all changed... :o

However, it appears the changes are for the better...

here's my question... in the past, I was able to put the system generated links inside of a static link

(ex sitename.com/index.php?static=folder/SYSTEM GEN FILE NAME HERE)

is this still something that's possible with the new dax:linkthing system?

I am not sure. How did this work? Can you give an example?

in my templates it was something like

<a href="www.sitename.com/<!---->"><!--[albumtitle]--><!----></a>

unfortunately, I lost all my stuff, which is why I had to reinstall... so I don't have any of the actual templates I built to pull from.
