Hey all, I am needing some help. I just found a program that will export the current song I am listening to fron iTunes as a html page and upload it to my server. I would like to be able to atake that html page and imbed it into a php block. I know I need to add some code to the lib-custom file but honestly I have no clue what I would add to call the function. Any help would be apprecated. Cregar

Well, not exactly what you're looking for, but I'm using KungTunes for the same thing and made this block to display the current song on my site:

Text Formatted Code
function phpblock_iTunes () {
    global $_CONF;

    $retval = '';
    $trackinfo = $_CONF['path_html'] . "trackinfo.txt";

    if (file_exists ($trackinfo)) {
        $lines = file ($trackinfo);
        $retval = trim ($lines[0]);
        if ($retval == '--off--') {
            $retval = '';

    return $retval;

Pretty simple: KungTunes uploads a "trackinfo.txt" file containing the song information. This function reads it and displays it in a block (unless the file contains just "--off--", then the function doesn't return anything and the block vanishes).

Hope that helps.

bye, Dirk
