Request examples


Use of a request script on a site.

One page request script. File name request.php.


script page


The position to show the page on your website can be done by including.

The page must be a .php file not a .htm or .html file, include_once('request.php'); to place in that page with a plain editor like notepad.

For use edit the code in the request.php file, just the blue parts in it as showing here.

$mysql_server = "127.0.0.1"; // MySQL Server's IP (and port if not default 3306). Ex: (191.268.1.2 or 191.268.1.2:345).
$mysql_database = "radiodj160"; // MySQL database name.
$mysql_user = "root"; // MySQL database username (usually root)..
$mysql_pass = "pass"; // MySQL database password.
$track_repeat = 120; // Don't display the track if it was played in the last X minutes.
$artist_repeat = 120; // Don't display the track if the artist was played in the last X minutes.
$def_timezone = 'Europe/Bucharest'; // Set your time-zone.

This script can be found in the download part.


There is also a script for the program Wordpress (Radiodj-for-wordpress-0.7.0.) only it's not supported by me.

What are shortcodes?

A short description of shortcodes:
