    Default lyrics import template

    somebody, give me some help on making a simple template. what i want it to show is: arist, album title, tracklist and lyrics for the whole album. it must look like this:
    [url]http://johnsonbl4.hotbox.ru/Vomitory%20-%20Redemption.htm[/url]

    here's what i managed to make up:
    [url]http://johnsonbl4.hotbox.ru/Lyrics.DAX[/url]

    what i can't do is:
    1. Artist, xxxx(release date). "Album title" - in the title bar.
    2. links between track titles in track list and lyrics (if there are lyrics - lyrics not available or the track is instrumental - i don't need the links).
    3. track titles written in capital letters
    4. different color for titles, track listing and lyrics
    5. the last line on the page.

    any ideas?

    Hey, man, just download the CMI Style template - it shows you exactly how to use <!--[if(TrackLyrics)]--> tags etc... better than I ever could.

    i think, that template is too overloaded. i want none of those options, or sorting, of everything like that. only colors should be customable. and i'm not good at html, so i just don't understand what most of the tags in that template stand for. yesterday i worked on it, and solved a couple of questions, so what is left is:

    1. Artist, xxxx(release date). "Album title" - in the title bar (though i made it possible to enter manually before the htm page compiles, i'd prefer it to be done automatically).

    2. links between track titles in track list and lyrics (if there are lyrics - lyrics not available or the track is instrumental - i don't need the links).

    4. color 1 for album title and lyrics and color 2 for artist, track listing, track titles and the last line.

    has anybody else to say anything?

    Between <head> and </head> you want:

    <title><!--[Artist/]--> <!--[Year/]--> - <!--[Title/]--></title>

    Which would give you something like this

    except that I don't have the year of release in my title bar.

    OK... Here's that lyric thing
    <!--[if(lyrics)]-->
    <!--[tracklink]--><!--[tracktitle/]--><!--[/tracklink]--> &amp;nbsp;
    <!--[else]-->
    <!--[tracktitle/]--> &amp;nbsp;<i>
    <!--[/if]-->
    But you then need an .htm template called something_track

    THEN...if you want different font for different things just add a <font> tag in front of each thing

    Try <br>&amp;nbsp;<br> instead of <br><br>. This will make an empty line.

    In your album template, replace <title>.... whatever ....</title> with this:

    <title><!--[artist/]--><!--[if(releasedate)]-->, <!--[releasedate/]--><!--[/if]-->. <!--[title/]--></title>

    2. links between track titles in track list and lyrics (if there are lyrics - lyrics not available or the track is instrumental - i don't need the links).
    Unfortunately, this is not possible yet. Future version will definitely support this kind of linking.

    4. color 1 for album title and lyrics and color 2 for artist, track listing, track titles and the last line.
    Use the following HTML for changing color of the text:

    <font color=green> .... your colored text goes here .... </font>

    Replace 'green' with any color you need. You can also use RGB notation, for example: #FFFF00 for yellow (red=FF, green=FF, blue=00).
